Online Stock broking on way to becoming billion dollar business

Annual results of India Infoline have left me pleasantly surprised. The earnings reported have tripled from Rs.75 crores in last fiscal 2004-05 to a whopping Rs.218 crores in the current year ending March 31st 2006.

India Infoline’s CFO Ravi Krishnan, in an interview to CNBC-TV18 has stated that 2/3rd of the entire income comes from Brokerage business! This translates to almost Rs.150 crores from brokerage income for the year.

There are only 2 listed online stock broking companies in India, India Infoline & Indiabulls, this makes estimating the market size a little difficult. However, I would estimate India Infoline’s market share at around 7-8% of the total online stock broking business. This translates to a total market size of around Rs.2,000 crores ($450 m). I had in my previous post estimated the last year market size to be around 500 crores. This makes online stock broking business clearly the largest and fastest growing Internet business in India. This business should be crossing billion $ mark in the next 12-18 months.

ICICI Direct, HDFC Securities & Sharekhan are the leaders in this space.

With much-heightened interest of FIIs, FDIs, NRIs in the Indian stock market, there is a lot of potential. There will be hedge-funds trying to do large-volume transactions, and they will demand smaller rates. Good development still a long way to go!

I think that online B2B transactional business (likes of etc) is more then the Stock broking business.

Dear All,

Your blog is nice and informative. We think our post will be quite useful and informative for your visitors. We have witnessed Sensex and Nifty showing quite handsome upward rally around new year time. But now on 2nd Jan again Indian stock marketis sluggish and is struggling to come up. We have posted in recent post that we can expect market to come down in between 26December-07 to
5- Jan-08.

Now on 2nd Jan FII has reentered into the market and game of seesaw with Nifty
graphs has started again.

We advise everyone whether they are working in Indian stock market or any other expect high volatility in all markets as sentiments of one
market effects other.

Always remember less profit or no profit is better then loss

Warm Regards

Indian stock market is one of the most volatile market. Its two main stock exchanges are NSEand BSE. Both exchanges generally follow same trend.

NSE and BSE offers platform for investment in Indian stock market. In India there are many traders who prefer NSE over BSE as they consider BSE
as more volatile exchange but truth is that all exchanges be it NSE, BSE or LSE are volatile and should not be considered as a place for speculation.
One should strictly follow technical analyses if they want to earn regularly from any stock market.

Please remember analyses of stock market be it technical or fundamental do help!!

The market is currently enjoying a good rally which has seen most stocks gain from competitive advantage and it would be advisable for all stock market enthusiasts to seize this opportunity and plan their investments in a safer yet conducive stock market. With NIFTY hovering around 4800-4900 +, it is expected to take hold of this currently rally and be realistically be closest to 5000 more so than before in what should be its new 52 week high.

Lot many untouched stocks are still there which are ready to blast any moment.
