I use Zerodha. They provide a pretty nifty app and enrollment is a easy and straightforward process.

Thanks for making this thread. Can be useful.
Anyway, so here's a short story of my involvement in trading.

I wanted to start my investing/trading journey since atleast 4 years now. But when sh!t hit the roof in 2020, I finally entered the world of investing/trading in July 2020 after I created a Zerodha account. I knew going in that it's very easy to loose money in trading, so I only started with 10k. And also put similar money in Mutual funds. I also got lucky with my first IPO when I was able to book good profit in Mazagon IPO.
While the money in MF kept growing thanks to bull market up until February 2021, I lost my trading money (10k in just brokerage alone) when I discovered I could use "margins". That's when I realize I can't bet on random stock. So I stopped trading until and started to listen to good YTers like Invest Aaj for Kal.

So my question is, who knows this guy, "Anant Ladda"? And do you guys trade (intraday or short term like few days)?

Till now the only exposure to US stocks is Parag Parikh Flexi Cap funds. It's a good fund. Although I do want to own a piece of Tesla. Been thinking about getting a way to invest in US based stocks too. Especially since we can buy fractions of a US stock too unlike Indian stocks.

TBH I am pretty new to investing in stocks myself. I just bought some stocks based on feedback from some members like @thetechfreak and @Faun in the new telegram group.

I have already added a disclaimer in the OP, so I think it applies to all posts in general.

If you want to buy USA stocks directly you can try vested. Not very worth for low volume purchases considering the cost but definitely worth in long term.

Alternative would be invest in Motilal Oswal N100 ETF. Read more here. It comprises of 100 USA stocks(with different weightage) and you can directly invest from Zerodha or whichever broker you use. Would suggest medium level investment on this at best (10-15% of porfolio) as sometimes these ETF have less volume and so you may have liquidity issues when looking to sell/cash out.

Use Zerodha or Angel broking. Send me a PM if you want a referral for Zerodha :p

@thetechfreak Have you invested with any SIPs? I am looking at the ones you have suggested on smallcase but the upfront cost seems a bit too steep for me.

No currently not doing SIP as I can manually manage the stock portfolio(and have the time). I thing for time constricted individuals it's good to do SIP on a few mutual funds and pick stocks (on a monthly or quarterly basis) and keep adding.
