ONLINE SHARE TRADING

7

HISTORY
Online trading involves investment activity which takes place over the Internet and it does not require physical inclusion of the broker. An investor has to register with an online trading portal like ICICIdirect.com, motilaloswal.com and sharekhan.com and many companies like that and investor gets into an agreement with the firm to trade in different securities according to the terms and conditions given on the agreement. As the servers of the online trading portal are connected all the time to the stock exchanges and designated banks the order processing is done in real time and investors can also have updates on the trading. They can also check the status of their orders either through e-mail or through the interface that it cannot be accessed by a third party.Some options are usually given to users such as to link their bank account, Demat accounts and brokerage accounts into a single interface. A single window is also there for all exchanges and a single screen is there for the complete order routing mechanism. The reason why online trading has developed over conventional offline brokerage firms is that this conventional method struggled with unfavorable economies. Staff cost is just one example of it. As the markets opens for 330 minutes a day one dealer can at best execute 500 trades in a day while online company like ICICI direct executes 150,000-200,000 trades a day on the National Stock Exchange alone accounting for 3-4% of NSE trades of 5 million a day. It would require a large amount of dealers to service this demand. Besides the salary costs it would also demand huge expenses in real estate and support systems. The offline model has got a downfall in the form of lower bandwidth and IT costs and the cost of bandwidth has fallen to one-eighth of what it was in 2000

giving online broking an advantage especially in the case of lower-volume retail investors. Today 30% of volumes on the NSE comes from this and it may go up to 50% in three-four years providing explosive growth for online broking in India. To be a successful trading portal it will definitely depend on bouquet of services provided by it for an end-user. Most of the portals charge a small registration fee and brokerage based on various conditions but it's important for the organization to keep focussed on customer-centric

THE EMERGENCE OF E-BROKING IN INDIA
The Indian trader is being fancied by the democratized world of online trading or also known as e-broking. The regular and attractive advertisements in the print media and electronic media have added to this fancy world. But as we compare to the Western countries, in India online trading has not still grasped the market , but has done a very important amount of progress in the past years and the future of online trading is bright. That is why many new companies are coming into this form of business structure and the existing companies are changing to this new format besides offline and other traditional forms of business. With only a mere share of 10% online trading a combined gross turnover of around Rs. 9000-10,000 crores handled by the BSE and NSE together there is a much greater scope for online trading. At present some of the dominant players in the online trading market of share market are – 1. Sharekhan.com 2. Icicidirect.com

9

3. Unicon 4. 5paisa.com 5. Indiabulls 6. Kotak Securities 7. Motilal Oswal 8. Geojit Securities Earlier the share market was not safe enough to invest but some of the changes in the past ten years in the Indian share market have created the interest of trading in the shares by the people. Broadly we can classify three important factors which have contributed to the development of online trading in IndiaFirstly the major step was taken by the National Stock Exchange (NSE) in the year 1994 which allowed the electronic trading and seeing to this various other stock exchanges in India followed soon. This helped in making the fast .accurate and transparent transactions saving a lot of time then the traditional method of trading. The investors were also saved by the clutches of the fraud brokers at the times when the clients were not aware of the true prices of the shares. Secondly, in the year 1996 the dematerialization of the shares came (also known as DEMAT) which avoided the online presence of shares in an electronic form avoiding them from theft, pilferage or from other losses like counterfeiting and frauds regarding share transfer The third reason was the rapid growth of computer education and learning of internet by the people. With the evolving of internet the online trading became a hit and the investors became confident in investing just with a click of a mouse.

10

Today the online trading companies having cut-throat competition in our offering whose brokerage discounts lower margin money and zero balance accounts. Due to the rising education awareness and use of internet there is a huge potential for online trading in future and companies must come up with innovative offerings to capture the untapped market

ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE TRADING
1. Provides with the Freedom of Information 2. Provides Control to Investors Money 3. Provides access to the market 4. Ensures the best price for investors 5. Online trading offers greater transparency 6. Provides hassle free trading 7. Online trading allows instant trade execution

11

8. Online trading reduces the settlement risk 9. Keeps Information Secure

DISADVANTAGES OF ONLINE TRADING
1. In online terminal, investor can’t get customized expert advice, whereas in offline the broker gives suggestions according to investors strategy (i.e. short term or long-term) 2. Brokerage is high compared to offline. 3. Privacy is less due to hacking scandals 4 . Transactional errors due to technical problems

CHP1--INTRODUCTION AND DESIGN OF THE STUDY

INTRODUCTION
India is a developing economy. It is prospering in all spheres . Share market is the compelling determinant of the economy and the financial situation of a country. Ever since the liberalization , privatization and globalization , the foreign investment in our country is booming. Share market is a clear indicator of developing trend prevailing in our country. Statistics reveal that the trade volume has been increasing continously, coupled with ups and downs which is nature of share trading. We are living in the interlinked world .With growing volume of trade, it has become a nessecity that people are aware of the intricacies of the web world. SENSEX the benchmark indicator of share trading has more than tripled ever since online – share trading commenced .It has become imperative to be the participant of this mode of training.

13

Recently the crisis in the financial market resulted in global inflation. The share market was clear indicator of the prevailing prices.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Share trading is the way for faster earning and loosing money. In recent years a volatile market could be witnessed. In the desire to earn money in a quick manner , more and more people ventured into the share trading. Lack of awareness of many investors has made them loose lakhs of money in share market. Wise play by many others has made them earn in crores. At such time, it would be interesting to know the attitude of the players and the condition in the market. A survey about the investors and share market in such a time would be educative to tommorow’s investors. It could also lead to improvement in the conditions that would facilitate increase in the share trading. Several websites provide information about the stock market. They educate people about the share trading and guide them through each step. Online share trading has become so common. Still many of them are unaware of the intricacies involved in share trading. Our finance minister P.Chidambaram is always optimistic when it comes to the role of stock market in the economy. Quite often we hear that the markets are down or they are in an upbeat. Condition being such it is necessary to take stock of the market activity and the awareness of investors in our town.

14

OBJECTIVITY OF THE STUDY
 To understand the attitude of the online share traders  To measure the effectiveness of broking sites  To conduct an enquiry among the share trading public in Mumbai about their experience with broking sites.  To suggest some improvement in these sites if need be.  To understand the depth upto which the online share traders are clear and aware of online share trading.

THEORY OF SHARE MARKET
A stock market or equity market is a public market (a loose network of economic transactions, not a physical facility or discrete entity) for the trading of company stock and derivatives at an agreed price; these are securities listed on a stock exchange as well as those only traded privately.

15

The stock market is one of the most important sources for companies to raise money. This allows businesses to be publicly traded, or raise additional capital for expansion by selling shares of ownership of the company in a public market. The liquidity that an exchange provides affords investors the ability to quickly and easily sell securities. This is an attractive feature of investing in stocks, compared to other less liquid investments such as real estate. Electronic trading- It eliminates the need for the physical trading floors. Brokers can trade from their offices, using fully automated screen based purposes. Their workstations are connected to a stock exchange central computer via satellite using very small aperture terminus (VSATs). The orders placed by brokers reach the exchange central computer and are matched electronically.

Why companies issue stock
If a company wants to grow – may be build more factories , hire more people ,or develop new products – it needs money. It could get a loan from a bank. But then it would owe money. By issuing stock , company can raise money without going into debt. People who buy stock are giving the company the money it needs to grow. Not every company can issue stock. A business owned by a person or few people (partnership) cannot issue stock. Only business corporation can issue the stock. A corporation has special legal status. Like school, its existence does not depend on the people who run ii. Under the law it is separate from the people associated with it , and has special legal rights and responsibilities well as its own unique name.

16

Why people buy it
Owning stock in a company means owning part of the company. Each part is known share. If a company has issued 100 shares of stock, and you bought one, you own 1% of that company. People who own stock are called stock holders or shareholders. Stockholders hope the company will earn the money as it grows. If a company earns money the stockholders share the profit. Over time people usually earn more from owning stock than from leaving money in the bank, buying bonds or making other investments.

Bears and bulls
Bears are cautious animals who don’t like to move fast. Bulls are bold animals that might charge right ahead. An investor is said to be “bearish” if he or she believes that the stock market will go down. A bearish investor will buy stock cautiously. A bullish investor believes the market will go up. He or she will charge ahead and put more money in the market. An investor can be bearish or bullish about a particular kind of stock. Like wise the term “bear market” describes the time when stock price has been falling on the whole. A “bull market” is a period generally rising. when stock prices are
