Stock Trading – as Easy as Click and Send

Before the introduction of online trading, the investor base in the KSE was limited, as working professionals and frequent travelers had no way to follow the ups and downs of the market. AKD Trade made this possible and changed the concept of stock trading as AKD Trade customers sitting in any part of the world can access market rates on a real-time basis and can place their orders through the following media.

Equity Trading Desk Through Equity Dealers

Besides Real-Time Trading facility, Portfolio details, Transactions history and Account Statements are also available to the AKD Trade customers. Additionally, AKD Research Reports are emailed to all our customers and are also available on the website There is also a dedicated Financial Portal containing all the necessary information about the major companies All this Research material assists our customers in designing their trading strategies and investment decisions.

With the traditional method of trading the investor is totally dependent on the trader. Even after instructions have been given to the trader he is not necessarily sure if the order has actually been placed and the order priority can also be compromised. The AKD Trade system, using a state-of-the-art information technology platform, now gives the user power to trade directly at his own pace, in his time.

Using the AKD Trade website/Application, the customer is totally in control of his/her trades. Orders are placed by the customer himself/herself through the website/Application with equal order priority, irrespective of the order size. Orders are executed instantly and the order status can be viewed online.
