Do I need a demat account?

To invest or trade in the equity markets, you must have a demat account. Upstox offers both trading and demat accounts together for your convenience.

What's a demat account?

A demat account is different from a trading account. The demat account holds the physical stock assets that you own. This account is commonly linked to your trading account. When you buy shares of a stock in the market, they are transferred from your trading account to your demat account at the end of the day.
