Why are savings in trading costs extremely important?

Online Share & Commodity Trading in India - SAMCO


The classical Economics theory says that, “when cost reduces manifestly, profits increases steadfastly”. SAMCO invites to explore, a compelling proposition to “substantially increased profits for both traders and investors alike without any extra efforts”. Surprised!!

Here’s how!!

Over long periods, the money spent on brokerage costs etc., add up to a huge reduction in investible capital of traders and investors alike, thereby creating at the very threshold, the challenge for generating higher returns. The capital forgone in favor of brokers makes a daunting task to consistently generate higher positive returns. The amount forgone towards traditional high % brokerages, we bet, is the entire initial capital. Shocked?? Let’s explore!

For an Investor:

An initial capital of an investor Rs 5,00,000/- if he just churns 3 times during the entire year, his entire capital is consumed by the traditional broker in 12 straight years at just a marginal brokerage slab of 0.35% for delivery plus other statutory levies extra which are not considered as they being Govt. levies, brokers have no control and are more or less same for discount brokers also. Assuming an investor generates 20%p.a. return every year, had he been transacting with the discount broker like SAMCO, in a matter of just 12 years he would have been richer by Rs, 5,00,000. The ending investment corpus would have been Rs 44 lacs if he would have placed orders on a discount broker platform and Rs 39 lacs if transacted with traditional brokers, a whopping Rs 5 lacs lower, giving it away to traditional broker.   Let’s show you how the math works out.

Let’s explore further! Now, for a Trader:

An initial capital of the trader Rs. 5,00,000/- he just takes a conservative and prudent leverage position of just 3 times his initial capital at any point in time and therefore trades in 5 lots, assuming 3lacs as the average contract size. He churns his capital 10 times in a month meaning total completed trades 20(buy and sell) multiplied by 5 different contract specifications resulting in 100 trades (5*20) a month. He pays 0.03% as brokerage to traditional broker and Rs 20/- per executed trade to the online broker like SAMCO. The results are mind blowing. Entire initial trading capital of Rs. 5,00,000/- is consumed in 9 straight years. Corpus at the end of 9th year for a trader having traded with discount broker would be Rs. 25.3 lacs and for the trader who traded with traditional broker would be only Rs. 19.6 lacs whopping Rs 5 lacs lower, giving it away to traditional broker. Again, let’s see how the math for this works out.

To look from a different perspective, it’s surprising, investors are paying a whopping 275% more all inclusive brokerages and other statutory levies as compare to SAMCO broking tariff for taking delivery of shares worth just Rs. 1,00,000/-, however higher the capital deployed for taking delivery, the increase in over payment percentages rises exponentially. Attached is the table showing scenarios for delivery of shares worth Rs. 1lac, 5lacs, 10lacs. Why should anybody pay higher charges when low cost options are available??

Excess Payment with Traditional Broker

So, the number one reason to embrace SAMCO is substantial savings in cost and which can run up to as high as 98% of all costs ever paid to brokers, it may seem a joke but yes it is possible. If you believe it, SAMCO has it. To satisfy yourself, you can check at the SAMCO Savings calculator.

A Question may arise for SAMCO, that they are pure discount brokers and therefore do not provide any value added services to the clients. In facts it’s the other way round, because of the robustness of the technology platform, we are able to provide far more relevant and immensely useful information to the masses which probably people on the street have not even imagined. It’s a proprietary stock rating process developed by SAMCO team to assess or evaluate the quality of listed stocks on the basis of fundamental parameters like growth, efficiency of operations, industry dynamics, ability to generate free cash flows, corporate governance, promoters pledging etc. There are 20 plus objective rating parameters based on various processes adopted by legendary investors of our times.
