I personally like go with zerodha because of easy to use mobile App.

Upstox trading platform is like Kite3 Zerodha , But now they are facing lot of platform related problems , same as that of Kite2 , So Zerodha is much better then Upstox , i would say Upstox is worst!!!

@Daku_Jones Is intraday allowed in F, E and M groups of BSE??

upstox has this "IndusStox 3-in-1 account! " which is very nice. Your really do not have to move funds from your bank account unless there is a need for it. ( This is a very nice feature for people who are worried about leaving money with the broker)

You have a nest trader which is way better than kite .

In addition to above, Zerodha do allow you to trade in small value stock with very low brokerages, Upstox does not.

Also Zerodha support is superior to any other known brokerage through out the country :slight_smile: This is my practical example.

Zerodha has GTT, Upstox doesn’t. End.


I don’t see a reason you need to shift. If you’re on Upstox, You’re already on an app that’s easy to use, and doesn’t throw up many glitches. Plus, all your investment instruments are on the same app, instead of having separate apps for stocks, mutual funds, etc. In an apples to apples comparison, you’ll barely notice any difference in features, but check which interface suits you better.

upstox is absolutely unreliable & useless system, i’ve tried it…zerodha is the best platform as of now.

If you are planning to invest in SGB from secondary markets… then swift to Zerodha. I am not aware of any other brokers supporting SGB from secondary markets (checked with upstox, paytm money, groww and many others)


Yes but I can’t leave money with bank also. :smile:

Zerodha has a good ecosystem: Streak, Sentinel, Coin, Sensibull, Smallcase, TradingQnA, etc… I am not a paid subscriber for Sensibull and Streak. Sensibull option chain is too slow and hence not subscribed to it. I have not chartered into Algo trading and hence did not go for Streak.

Upstox has a damn good desktop trading platform in the form of Dartstock. It has many good features which are required for intraday and positional trader. The desktop trading platform from Zerodha in the form of PI is not good.

For mobile app trading, both offer more or less the same functionality and features.

One of the major problem with Zerodha is for Option traders who take hedge positions. They don’t allow to buy far OTM options unless you have short position. With the new margin rules, it is essential for traders to buy far OTM options in order to avail margin benefit.

Depending on your requirements, you can choose either of the broker.

In case your only requirement is to invest in stocks/Mutual funds, Zerodha is the best.


Even Zerodha has 3 in 1 account linked with IDFC First Bank.
Also I am using Upstox since 7-8 months. Its good and bad. I am not a trader, so I didn’t find any shortcomings from a broker.
Just today only I opened Zerodha account, I think zerodha has an edge because it is No.1 and the way they are collaborating with some great start ups, I feel I am liking zerodha.

Since I have posted that I like zerodha recently… but if you would love to be part of AMO orders. It is worst.

Both are same… in terms of Quality and service not much difference…

As of now, are there range restrictions in Upstox?
