What is a Brokerage Calculator?
A Brokerage Calculator is a unique online tool that is designed to help you quickly determine the amount of brokerage applicable for a given trade. You can use the m.Stock brokerage savings calculator to check how much brokerage you will save yearly by opting for the ZERO brokerage plan from m.Stock.
How to use a Brokerage Calculator?
You are required to pay a set of charges, known as brokerage, in addition to the purchase price of the stock every time you trade. Brokerage can either be a percentage of the total trade value or a flat fee per trade. But since it adds to the overall cost of your investment, it is important to accurately calculate your brokerage using a brokerage calculator to make informed decisions.
So, how do you use a brokerage calculator? Using a brokerage charges calculator is extremely easy, and it only takes a few minutes. You only have to enter a few details of your trade. The calculator then uses this information to instantly give you an estimate of the amount of brokerage that you will save per trade with m.Stock.
Follow the steps outlined below to use the m.Stock brokerage calculator:
Select the segment(s) that you wish to trade in
Choose the type of brokerage - Flat rate or percentage
Enter the brokerage fee per order or the percentage charged per order
And finally, specify the number of orders that you want to place in a month
The amount of brokerage that you can save each year by opting for m.Stock’s ZERO brokerage plan will be displayed instantly by the calculator.
Brokerage as a % of trade value
In this case, the brokerage depends on the total value of the trade that you place, also known as the turnover. Let’s say that your average monthly turnover is around ₹1,00,000, and your stock broker charges 0.10% of the total trade value as brokerage.
In that case, the brokerage that you would have to pay annually would be as follows.
turnover X Percentage of
brokerage X 12
1,00,000 X 0.10% X 12
Brokerage = ₹ 1,200
By opting for m.Stock’s ZERO brokerage plan, you can save ₹1,200 annually.
Brokerage as a flat fee
Discount brokers charge a flat fee brokerage. Here, a fixed fee is charged for every successful trade, irrespective of the trade value. Let’s say the number of monthly orders you place is 100 and your stockbroker levies a fixed fee of ₹20 for every trade.
In this case, the brokerage that you would have to pay annually would be as follows.
monthly orders X Fixed fee
brokerage X 12
100 X 20 X 12
Brokerage = ₹ 24,000
By opting for m.Stock’s ZERO brokerage plan, you can save ₹24,000 annually.
