Blink- The trading application provided by HDFC Securities is known as Blink and you can install this application if you are really serious about your investments. This is a terminal application which is best-suited for medium to heavy level investors. It is quite easy to use but it also comes at a price- for 6 months subscription, you need to pay 2,999, while for a 1-year subscription, you will have to pay a total of 3,999.

Final Verdict-

HDFC Securities is, first of all, a reliable name when it comes to stock market trading since there are a lot of fraudulent brokers ready to take advantage of innocent investors. With the 3-in-1 account, you will be able to become a full-time investor without so much as losing hair over the transactions involved. The transactions are completely hassle-free and do not require you to send a screenshot or a copy of your cheque, as some other brokers need. If you are looking to invest your money in a hassle-free manner, HDFC Securities is the way to go. But you must also be ready to bear the brokerage charges and other underlying charges levied on each transaction you make. This broker is best suited for medium to high-level traders who are planning to invest big.
