A stock market, or (equity market), is a private or public market

for the trading of company stock and derivatives of company
stock at an agreed price; these are securities listed on a stock
exchange as well as those only traded privately.

The size of the world stock market is estimated at about $51

trillion. The world derivatives market has been estimated at
about $480 trillion face or nominal value, 12 times the size of
the entire world economy. It must be noted though that the value
of the derivatives market, because it is stated in terms of

notional values, and cannot be directly compared to a stock or a
fixed income security, which traditionally refers to an actual

value. Many such relatively illiquid securities are valued as

marked to model, rather than an actual market price.

The stocks are listed and traded on stock exchanges which are
entities a corporation or mutual organization specialized in the
business of bringing buyers and sellers of stocks and securities
together. The stock market in the United States includes the
trading of all securities listed on the NYSE, the NASDAQ, the
Amex, as well as on the many regional exchanges, e.g. OTCBB
and Pink Sheets. European examples of stock exchanges include
the London Stock Exchange, the Deutsche Borse and the Paris

Historian Fernand Braudel suggests that in Cairo in the 11th

century Muslim and Jewish merchants had already set up every
form of trade association and had knowledge of many methods of
credit and payment, disproving the belief that these were
invented later by Italians. In 12th century France the courratiers
de change were concerned with managing and regulating the
debts of agricultural communities on behalf of the banks.
Because these men also traded with debts, they could be called
the first brokers. In late 13th century Bruges commodity traders
gathered inside the house of a man called Van der Beurse, and in
1309 they became the "Brugse Beurse", institutionalizing what
had been, until then, an informal meeting. The idea quickly
spread around Flanders and neighboring counties and "Beurzen"
soon opened in Ghent Antwerp and Amsterdam.

In the middle of the 13th century Venetian bankers began to

trade in government securities. In 1351 the Venetian government
outlawed spreading rumors intended to lower the price of
government funds. Bankers in Pisa, Verona, Genoa and Florence
also began trading in government securities during the 14th
century. This was only possible because these were independent
city states not ruled by a duke but a council of influential
citizens. The Dutch later started joint stock companies, which
let shareholders invest in business ventures and get a share of
their profits - or losses. In 1602, the Dutch East India Company
issued the first shares on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. It was
the first company to issue stocks and bonds.

The Amsterdam Stock Exchange (or Amsterdam Beurs) is also

said to have been the first stock exchange to introduce
continuous trade in the early 17th century. The Dutch "pioneered
short selling, option trading, debt-equity swaps, merchant
banking, unit trusts and other speculative instruments, much as
we know them" (Murray Sayle, "Japan Goes Dutch", London
Review of Books XXIII.7, April 5, 2001). There are now stock
markets in virtually every developed and most developing
economies, with the world's biggest markets being in the United
States, Canada, China (Hong Kong), India, UK, Germany, France
and Japan.[1]


Participants in the stock market range from small individual

stock investors to large hedge fund traders, who can be based
anywhere. Their orders usually end up with a professional at a
stock exchange, who executes the order.

Some exchanges are physical locations where transactions are

carried out on a trading floor, by a method known as open
outcry. This type of auction is used in stock exchanges and
commodity exchanges where traders may enter "verbal" bids and
offers simultaneously. The other type of exchange is a virtual
kind, composed of a network of computers where trades are
made electronically via traders.

Actual trades are based on an auction market paradigm where a

potential buyer bids a specific price for a stock and a potential
seller asks a specific price for the stock. (Buying or selling at
market means you will accept any ask price or bid price for the
stock, respectively.) When the bid and ask prices match, a sale
takes place on a first come first served basis if there are
multiple bidders or askers at a given price.

The purpose of a stock exchange is to facilitate the exchange of

securities between buyers and sellers, thus providing a
marketplace (virtual or real). The exchanges provide real-time
trading information on the listed securities, facilitating price

The New York Stock Exchange is a physical exchange, also

referred to as a listed exchange — only stocks listed with the
exchange may be traded. Orders enter by way of exchange
members and flow down to a specialist, who goes to the floor
trading post to trade stock. The specialist's job is to match buy
and sell orders using open outcry. If a spread exists, no trade
immediately takes place--in this case the specialist should use
his/her own resources (money or stock) to close the difference
after his/her judged time. Once a trade has been made the details
are reported on the "tape" and sent back to the brokerage firm,
which then notifies the investor who placed the order. Although
there is a significant amount of human contact in this process,
computers play an important role, especially for so-called
"program trading".

The NASDAQ is a virtual listed exchange, where all of the

trading is done over a computer network. The process is similar
to the New York Stock Exchange. However, buyers and sellers
are electronically matched. One or more NASDAQ market makers
will always provide a bid and ask price at which they will
always purchase or sell 'their' stock.

The Paris Bourse, now part of Euronext, is an order-driven,

electronic stock exchange. It was automated in the late 1980s.
Prior to the 1980s, it consisted of an open outcry exchange.
Stockbrokers met on the trading floor or the Palais Brongniart.
In 1986, the CATS trading system was introduced, and the order
matching process was fully automated.

From time to time, active trading (especially in large blocks of

securities) have moved away from the 'active' exchanges.
Securities firms, led by UBS AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and
Credit Suisse Group, already steer 12 percent of U.S. security
trades away from the exchanges to their internal systems. That
share probably will increase to 18 percent by 2010 as more
investment banks bypass the NYSE and NASDAQ and pair buyers
and sellers of securities themselves, according to data compiled
by Boston-based Aite Group LLC, a brokerage-industry
consultant [citation needed].

Now that computers have eliminated the need for trading floors
like the Big Board's, the balance of power in equity markets is
shifting. By bringing more orders in-house, where clients can
move big blocks of stock anonymously, brokers pay the
exchanges less in fees and capture a bigger share of the $11
billion a year that institutional investors pay in trading


Many years ago, worldwide, buyers and sellers were individual

investors, such as wealthy businessmen, with long family
histories (and emotional ties) to particular corporations. Over
time, markets have become more "institutionalized"; buyers and
sellers are largely institutions (e.g., pension funds, insurance
companies, mutual funds, hedge funds, investor groups, and
banks). The rise of the institutional investor has brought with it
some improvements in market operations. Thus, the government
was responsible for "fixed" (and exorbitant) fees being markedly
reduced for the 'small' investor, but only after the large
institutions had managed to break the brokers' solid front on
fees they then went to 'negotiated' fees, but only for large
institutions)[citation needed].

However, corporate governance (at least in the West) has been

very much adversely affected by the rise of (largely 'absentee')
institutional 'owners'


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.

History has shown that the price of shares and other assets is an
important part of the dynamics of economic activity, and can
influence or be an indicator of social mood. Rising share prices,
for instance, tend to be associated with increased business
investment and vice versa. Share prices also affect the wealth of
households and their consumption. Therefore, central banks tend
to keep an eye on the control and behavior of the stock market
and, in general, on the smooth operation of financial system
functions. Financial stability is the raison d'être of central

Exchanges also act as the clearinghouse for each transaction,

meaning that they collect and deliver the shares, and guarantee
payment to the seller of a security. This eliminates the risk to
an individual buyer or seller that the counterparty could default
on the transaction.

The smooth functioning of all these activities facilitates

economic growth in that lower costs and enterprise risks
promote the production of goods and services as well as
employment. In this way the financial system contributes to
increased prosperity.


From experience we know that investors may temporarily pull

financial prices away from their long term trend level. Over-
reactions may occur—so that excessive optimism (euphoria) may
drive prices unduly high or excessive pessimism may drive
prices unduly low. New theoretical and empirical arguments
have been put forward against the notion that financial markets
are efficient.

According to the efficient market hypothesis (EMH), only

changes in fundamental factors, such as profits or dividends,
ought to affect share prices. (But this largely theoretic academic
viewpoint also predicts that little or no trading should take
place—contrary to fact—since prices are already at or near
equilibrium, having priced in all public knowledge.) But the
efficient-market hypothesis is sorely tested by such events as
the stock market crash in 1987, when the Dow Jones index
plummeted 22.6 percent—the largest-ever one-day fall in the
United States. This event demonstrated that share prices can fall
dramatically even though, to this day, it is impossible to fix a
definite cause: a thorough search failed to detect any specific or
unexpected development that might account for the crash. It also
seems to be the case more generally that many price movements
are not occasioned by new information; a study of the fifty
largest one-day share price movements in the United States in
the post-war period confirms this.[3] Moreover, while the EMH
predicts that all price movement (in the absence of change in
fundamental information) is random (i.e., non-trending), many
studies have shown a marked tendency for the stock market to
trend over time periods of weeks or longer.

Various explanations for large price movements have been

promulgated. For instance, some research has shown that
changes in estimated risk, and the use of certain strategies, such
as stop-loss limits and Value at Risk limits, theoretically could
cause financial markets to overreact.

Other research has shown that psychological factors may result

in exaggerated stock price movements. Psychological research
has demonstrated that people are predisposed to 'seeing'
patterns, and often will perceive a pattern in what is, in fact,
just noise. (Something like seeing familiar shapes in clouds or
ink blots.) In the present context this means that a succession of
good news items about a company may lead investors to
overreact positively (unjustifiably driving the price up). A

period of good returns also boosts the investor's self-
confidence, reducing his (psychological) risk threshold.[4].

In one paper the authors draw an analogy with gambling.[5] In

normal times the market behaves like a game of roulette; the
probabilities are known and largely independent of the
investment decisions of the different players. In times of market
stress, however, the game becomes more like poker (herding
behavior takes over). The players now must give heavy weight to
the psychology of other investors and how they are likely to
react psychologically.

The stock market, as any other business, is quite unforgiving of

amateurs. Inexperienced investors rarely get the assistance and
support they need. In the period running up to the recent Nasdaq
crash, less than 1 per cent of the analyst's recommendations had
been to sell (and even during the 2000 - 2002 crash, the average
did not rise above 5%). The media amplified the general
euphoria, with reports of rapidly rising share prices and the
notion that large sums of money could be quickly earned in the
so-called new economy stock market. (And later amplified the
gloom which descended during the 2000 - 2002 crash, so that by
summer of 2002, predictions of a DOW average below 5000 were
quite common.


Sometimes the market tends to react irrationally to economic

news, even if that news has no real effect on the technical value
of securities itself. Therefore, the stock market can be swayed
tremendously in either direction by press releases, rumors,
euphoria and mass panic.

Over the short-term, stocks and other securities can be battered

or buoyed by any number of fast market-changing events,
making the stock market difficult to predict.

Bombay Stock Exchange

T h e B o m b a y S t o c k E x c h a n g e L i m i t e d ( H i n d i : म ुं ब ई श े य र ब ा ज ा र
Mumbaī Śeyar Bājār) (formerly, The Stock Exchange, Mumbai;
popularly called The Bombay Stock Exchange, or BSE) is the
oldest stock exchange in Asia. It is also the biggest stock
exchange in the world in terms of listed companies with 6,000
listed companies as of August 2007.[1] It is located at Dalal
Street, Mumbai, India. On 31 December 2007, the equity market
capitalization of the companies listed on the BSE was US$ 1.79
trillion, making it the largest stock exchange in South Asia and
the tenth largest in the world.[2]

The Bombay Stock Exchange was established in 1875. Around

6,000 Indian companies list on the stock exchange,[3] and it has
a significant trading volume. The BSE SENSEX (SENSitive
indEX), also called the "BSE 30", is a widely used market index
in India and Asia. Though many other exchanges exist, BSE and
the National Stock Exchange of India account for most of the
trading in shares in India


The BSE SENSEX (also known as the BSE 30 index) is a value-

weighted index composed of thirty scrips, with the base April
1979 = 100. The set of companies which make up the index has
been changed only a few times in the last twenty years. These
companies account for around one-fifth of the market
capitalization of the BSE.

Apart from BSE SENSEX, which is the most popular stock index
in India, BSE uses other stock indices as well:

• BSE 500
• BSE 100
• BSE 200
• BSE Teck
• BSE Auto
• BSE Pharma
• BSE Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG)
• BSE Consumer Durables


The BSE Broadcast is a large ticker on the wall of the BSE,

which continuously displays the latest stock quotes from the
market. It also displays – on what is described as India's and
South Asia's largest video screen –one of the leading business-
news channels in India: NDTV Profit.

This new system was unveiled on December 15, 2006, when Dr

Prannoy Roy, the Managing Director of New Delhi Television
(NDTV) Ltd, struck the BSE's opening bell. Mr Damodaran, the
Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI),
said that the ticker would provide information and analysis of
the financial world.

Following is the timeline on the rise and rise of the Sensex

through Indian stock market history.

16,000, September 19, 2007 The Sensex scaled yet another

milestone during early morning trade on September 19, 2007.
Within minutes after trading began, the Sensex crossed 16,000,
rising by 450 points from the previous close. The 30-share
Bombay Stock Exchange's sensitive index took 53 days to reach
16,000 from 15,000. Nifty also touched a new high at 4659, up
113 points.

The Sensex finally ended with a gain of 654 points at 16,323.

The NSE Nifty gained 186 points to close at 4,732.

17,000, September 26, 2007 The Sensex scaled yet another

height during early morning trade on September 26, 2007.

17,000-mark . Some profit taking towards the end, saw the index
slip into red to 16,887 - down 187 points from the day's high.
The Sensex ended with a gain of 22 points at 16,921.

18,000, October 09, 2007 The BSE Sensex crossed the 18,000-
mark on October 09, 2007. It took just 8 days to cross 18,000
points from the 17,000 mark. The index zoomed to a new all-
time intra-day high of 18,327. It finally gained 789 points to
close at an all-time high of 18,280. The market set several new
records including the biggest single day gain of 789 points at
close, as well as the largest intra-day gains of 993 points in
absolute term backed by frenzied buying after the news of the
UPA and Left meeting on October 22 put an end to the worries
of an impending election.

19,000, October 15, 2007 The Sensex crossed the 19,000-mark

backed by revival of funds-based buying in blue chip stocks in
metal, capital goods and refinery sectors. The index gained the
last 1,000 points in just four trading days. The index touched a
fresh all-time intra-day high of 19,096, and finally ended with a
smart gain of 640 points at 19,059.The Nifty gained 242 points
to close at 5,670.

20,000, October 29, 2007 The Sensex crossed the 20,000 mark
on the back of aggressive buying by funds ahead of the US
Federal Reserve meeting. The index took only 10 trading days to
gain 1,000 points after the index crossed the 19,000-mark on
October 15. The major drivers of today's rally were index

Heavyweights Larsen and Toubro, Reliance Industries, ICICI

Bank, HDFC Bank and SBI among others. The 30-share index
spurted in the last five minutes of trade to fly-past the crucial
level and scaled a new intra-day peak at 20,024.87 points before
ending at its fresh closing high of 19,977.67, a gain of 734.50
points. The NSE Nifty rose to a record high 5,922.50 points
before ending at 5,905.90, showing a hefty gain of 203.60

21,000, January 8, 2008 The sensex crossed the 21,000 mark in

intra-day trading after 49 trading sessions. This was backed by
high market confidence of increased FII investment and strong
corporate results for the third quarter. However, it later fell
back due to profit booking.

15,200, June 13, 2008 The sensex closed below 15,200 mark,
Indian market suffer with major downfall from January 21,2008

14,220, June 25, 2008 The sensex touched an intra day low of
13,731 during the early trades, then pulled back and ended up at
14,220 amidst a negative sentiment generated on the Reserve
Bank of India hiking CRR by 50 bps. FII outflow continued in
this week.

12,822, July 2, 2008 The sensex hit an intra day low of

12,822.70 on July 2nd, 2008. This is the lowest that it has ever
been in the past year. Six months ago, on January 10th, 2008,
the market had hit an all time high of 21206.70. This is a bad
time for the Indian markets, although Reliance and Infosys
continue to lead the way with mostly positive results.
Bloomberg lists them as the top two gainers for the Sensex,
closely followed by ICICI Bank and ITC Ltd

The National Stock Exchange of India Limited (NSE), is a

Mumbai-based stock exchange. It is the largest stock exchange
in India in terms of daily turnover and number of trades, for
both equities and derivative trading.[1]. Though a number of
other exchanges exist, NSE and the Bombay Stock Exchange are
the two most significant stock exchanges in India, and between
them are responsible for the vast majority of share transactions.
The NSE's key index is the S&P CNX Nifty, known as the Nifty,
an index of fifty major stocks weighted by market capitalisation.

NSE is mutually-owned by a set of leading financial
institutions, banks, insurance companies and other financial
intermediaries in India but its ownership and management
operate as separate entities[2]. As of 2006, the NSE VSAT
terminals, 2799 in total, cover more than 1500 cities across
India [3]. In October 2007, the equity market capitalization
of the companies listed on the NSE was US$ 1.46 trillion,
making it the second largest stock exchange in South Asia.
NSE is the third largest Stock Exchange in the world in
terms of the number of trades in equities.[4]It is the second
fastest growing stock exchange in the world with a recorded
growth of 16.6%. Origins

NSE building at BKC

The National Stock Exchange of India was promoted by leading

Financial institutions at the behest of the Government of India,
and was incorporated in November 1992 as a tax-paying
company. In April 1993, it was recognized as a stock exchange
under the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956. NSE
commenced operations in the Wholesale Debt Market (WDM)
segment in June 1994. The Capital Market (Equities) segment of
the NSE commenced operations in November 1994, while
operations in the Derivatives segment commenced in June 2000.

NSE has remained in the forefront of modernization of India's

capital and financial markets, and its pioneering efforts include:

• Being the first national, anonymous, electronic limit order

book (LOB) exchange to trade securities in India. Since the
success of the NSE, existent market and new market
structures have followed the "NSE" model.
• Setting up the first clearing corporation "National
Securities Clearing Corporation Ltd." in India. NSCCL was
a landmark in providing innovation on all spot equity
market (and later, derivatives market) trades in India.
• Co-promoting and setting up of National Securities
Depository Limited, first depository in India[2].
• Setting up of S&P CNX Nifty.
• NSE pioneered commencement of Internet Trading in
February 2000, which led to the wide popularization of the
NSE in the broker community.
• Being the first exchange that, in 1996, proposed exchange
traded derivatives, particularly on an equity index, in
India. After four years of policy and regulatory debate and

In finance, a security whose price is dependent upon or derived

from one or more is underlying assets. The derivative itself
is merely a contract between two or more parties. Its value
is determined by fluctuations in the underlying asset. The
most common underlying assets include stocks,
bonds, commodities, currencies, interest rates and market
indexes. Most derivatives are characterized by high

Futures contracts, forward contracts, options and swaps are the

most common types of derivatives. Because derivatives are just
contracts, just about anything can be used as an underlying
asset. There are even derivatives based on weather data, such as
the amount of rain or the number of sunny days in a particular

Derivatives are generally used to hedge risk, but can also be

used for speculative purposes. For example, a European investor
purchasing shares of an American company off of an American
exchange (using American dollars to do so) would be exposed to

exchange-rate risk while holding that stock. To hedge this risk,

the investor could purchase currency futures to lock in a
specified exchange rate for the future stock sale and currency
conversion back into euros.


Hedgers, speculators and arbitrators are the types of traders in

derivatives market.


Hedgers are those who protect themselves from the risk

associated with the price of an asset by using derivatives. A
person keeps a close watch upon the prices discovered in trading
and when the comfortable price is reflected according to his
wants, he sells futures contracts. In this way he gets an assured
fixed price of his produce.

In general, hedgers use futures for protection against adverse
future price movements in the underlying cash commodity.
Hedgers are often businesses, or individuals, who at one point
or another deal in the underlying cash commodity.

Take an example: A Hedger pay more to the farmer or dealer of

a produce if its prices go up. For protection against higher
prices of the produce, he hedge the risk exposure by buying
enough future contracts of the produce to cover the amount of
produce he expects to buy. Since cash and futures prices do tend
to move in tandem, the futures position will profit if the price
of the produce rise enough to offset cash loss on the produce.

Speculators are some what like a middle man. They are never
interested in actual owing the commodity. They will just buy
from one end and sell it to the other in anticipation of future
price movements. They actually bet on the future movement in
the price of an asset.

They are the second major group of futures players. These

participants include independent floor traders and investors.
They handle trades for their personal clients or brokerage firms.

Buying a futures contract in anticipation of price increases is

known as ‘going long’. Selling a futures contract in anticipation
of a price decrease is known as ‘going short’. Speculative
participation in futures trading has increased with the
availability of alternative methods of participation.

Speculators have certain advantages over other investments they

are as follows:

• If the trader’s judgment is good, he can make more money

in the futures market faster because prices tend, on
average, to change more quickly than real estate or stock

• Futures are highly leveraged investments. The trader puts

up a small fraction of the value of the underlying contract
as margin, yet he can ride on the full value of the contract
as it moves up and down. The money he puts up is not a
down payment on the underlying contract, but a
performance bond. The actual value of the contract is only
exchanged on those rare occasions when delivery takes

According to dictionary definition, a person who has been

officially chosen to make a decision between two people or
groups who do not agree is known as Arbitrator. In commodity
market Arbitrators are the person who takes the advantage of a
discrepancy between prices in two different markets. If he finds
future prices of a commodity edging out with the cash price, he
will take offsetting positions in both the markets to lock in a
profit. Move over the commodity futures investor is not charged
interest on the difference between margin and the full contract


The financial system is one of the most important inventions of

the modern society. The phenomenon of imbalance in the
distribution of capital of funds exists in every economy system.
There are areas or people with surplus funds as also those with a
deficit. A financial system functions as an intermediary and a
facilitates the flow of funds from the areas of surplus to those
of deficit. A financial system is a composition of various
institutions, markets, regulations and laws, practices, money,
managers, analysts, transactions and claims and liabilities.

The financial system helps to determine both the cost and the
volume of credit. The system can affect a rise in the cost of
funds which adversely affects consumption, productions,
employment and growth of the economy .similarly, lower ring
the cost positive directions. Thus we find that a financial
system has an impact on the basic existence of an economy and
its citizens.

`The four main functions performed by a financial system are

given below:

The saving function

Liquidity function

Payment function

Risk function


Seekers of Flow of funds

Suppliers of
funds (mainly
business Flow of financial (mainly
firms and service household)
government) Income and financial


The public saving finds their way into the hands of those in
production through the financial system. Financial claims are
issued in the money and capital markets, which promise future
income flows. The funds in the hands of the producers result in
production of better goods and services, increasing society’s
standard of living when saving flows decline. However the
growth of the investment and living standard begins to fall


Of all financial instruments, money is the form of deposits

offers the least risk, but its value is almost eroded by
inflations. That is why one always prefers to store the funds in
financial instruments like stocks, bonds, debentures, etc. the
compromise one makes in such investment is (1) that the risk
involved is more and (2) the degree of liquidity conversion of
the claims into money is less. The financial markets provide the
investor the opportunity to liquidate the investments.


The financial system offers a very convenient mode of payment

for goods and services.
The cheque system and credit card system are the easiest
methods of payment in the economy .the cost and time for
transaction are drastically reduced .in India ,while the cheque
system of payment is widely practiced , the credit card system
has entered only recently into urban India and is widely used in
these areas for payments of consumption expenditure.


The financial markets provide protection against life, health and

income risks. These guarantees are accomplished through the
sale of life and health insurance, and properly insurance
policies .the financial markets provide immense opportunities
for the investor to hedge himself against of reduce the possible
risk involved in various investments.

A financial market can be defined as the market in which
financial assets are created or transferred in which financial
assets represented a claim of the payment of a sum of money
sometime in the future and periodic payment in the form of
interest or dividend. Definition.

Financial markets could mean:

1. organizations that facilitate the trade in financial securities.

i.e. Stock exchanges facilitate the trade in stocks, bonds and

2. the coming together of buyers and sellers to trade financial

securities. i.e. stocks and shares are traded between buyers and
sellers in a number of ways including: the use of stock
exchanges; directly between buyers and sellers etc.

In academia, students of finance will use both meanings but

students of economics will only use the second meaning.

Financial markets can be domestic or they can be international.


The financial markets can be divided into different subtypes:

Capital markets which consist of: Stock markets, which provide

financing through the issuance of shares or common stock, and
enable the subsequent trading thereof.

Bond markets, which provide financing through the issuance of
Bonds, and enable the subsequent trading thereof.

Commodity markets, which facilitate the trading of


Money markets, which provide short term debt financing and


Derivatives markets, which provide instruments for the

management of financial risk.

Futures markets, which provide standardized forward contracts

for trading products at some future date; see also forward

Insurance markets, which facilitate the redistribution of various


Foreign exchange markets, which facilitate the trading of

foreign exchange.

The capital markets consist of primary markets and secondary

markets. Newly formed (issued) securities are bought or sold in
primary markets. Secondary markets allow investors to sell
securities that they hold or buy existing securities.


To understand financial markets, let us look at what they are

used for, i.e. what is their purpose?

Without financial markets, borrowers would have difficulty

finding lenders themselves. Intermediaries such as banks help in
this process. Banks take deposits from those who have money to
save. They can then lend money from this pool of deposited
money to those who seek to borrow. Banks popularly lend money
in the form of loans and mortgages.

More complex transactions than a simple bank deposit require

markets where lenders and their agents can meet borrowers and
their agents, and where existing borrowing or lending
commitments can be sold on to other parties. A good example of
a financial market is a stock exchange. A company can raise
money by selling shares to investors and its existing shares can
be bought or sold.

The following table illustrates where financial markets fit in the

relationship between lenders and borrowers:

Relationship between lenders and borrowers

Financial Financial
Lenders Borrowers
Intermediaries Markets

Interbank Individuals
Stock Companies
Exchange Central
Individuals Insurance Companies
Money Market Government
Companies Pension Funds
Bond Market Municipalities
Mutual Funds
Foreign Public
Exchange Corporations


Many individuals are not aware that they are lenders, but almost
everybody does lend money in many ways. A person lends money
when he or she:

• puts money in a savings account at a bank;

• contributes to a pension plan;
• pays premiums to an insurance company;
• invests in government bonds; or
• invests in company shares.

Companies tend to be borrowers of capital. When companies

have surplus cash that is not needed for a short period of time,
they may seek to make money from their cash surplus by lending
it via short term markets called money markets.

There are a few companies that have very strong cash flows.
These companies tend to be lenders rather than borrowers. Such
companies may decide to return cash to lenders (e.g. via a share
buyback.) Alternatively, they may seek to make more money on
their cash by lending it (e.g. investing in bonds and stocks.)


Individuals borrow money via bankers' loans for short term

needs or longer term mortgages to help finance a house

Companies borrow money to aid short term or long term cash

flows. They also borrow to fund modernisation or future
business expansion.

Governments often find their spending requirements exceed their
tax revenues. To make up this difference, they need to borrow.
Governments also borrow on behalf of nationalised industries,
municipalities, local authorities and other public sector bodies.
In the UK, the total borrowing requirement is often referred to
as the public sector borrowing requirement (PSBR).

Governments borrow by issuing bonds. In the UK, the

government also borrows from individuals by offering bank
accounts and Premium Bonds. Government debt seems to be
permanent. Indeed the debt seemingly expands rather than being
paid off. One strategy used by governments to reduce the value
of the debt is to influence inflation.

Municipalities and local authorities may borrow in their own

name as well as receiving funding from national governments. In
the UK, this would cover an authority like Hampshire County

Public Corporations typically include nationalised industries.

These may include the postal services, railway companies and
utility companies.

Many borrowers have difficulty raising money locally. They

need to borrow internationally with the aid of Foreign exchange


During the 1980s and 1990s, a major growth sector in financial

markets is the trade in so called derivative products, or
derivatives for short.

In the financial markets, stock prices, bond prices, currency

rates, interest rates and dividends go up and down, creating
risk. Derivative products are financial products which are used
to control risk or paradoxically exploit risk. It is also called
financial economics.


Main article: Foreign exchange market

Seemingly, the most obvious buyers and sellers of foreign

exchange are importers/exporters. While this may have been true
in the distant past, whereby importers/exporters created the
initial demand for currency markets, importers and exporters

now represent only 1/32 of foreign exchange dealing, according
to BIS.[1]

The picture of foreign currency transactions today shows:

• Banks and Institutions

• Speculators
• Government spending (for example, military bases abroad)
• Importers/Exporters
• Tourists


Much effort has gone into the study of financial markets and
how prices vary with time. Charles Dow, one of the founders of
Dow Jones & Company and The Wall Street Journal, enunciated
a set of ideas on the subject which are now called Dow Theory.
This is the basis of the so-called technical analysis method of
attempting to predict future changes. One of the tenets of
"technical analysis" is that market trends give an indication of
the future, at least in the short term. The claims of the technical
analysts are disputed by many academics, who claim that the
evidence points rather to the random walk hypothesis, which
states that the next change is not correlated to the last change.

The scale of changes in price over some unit of time is called

the volatility. It was discovered by Benoît Mandelbrot that
changes in prices do not follow a Gaussian distribution, but are
rather modeled better by Lévy stable distributions. The scale of
change, or volatiliy, depends on the length of the time unit to a
power a bit more than 1/2. Large changes


Capital market is an organized market for long term funds

required , to meet the long term needs of business enterprises .

The capital market is the market for securities, where

companies and governments can raise longterm funds. The
capital market includes the stock market and the bond market.
Financial regulators, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, oversee the capital markets in their designated
countries to ensure that investors are protected against fraud.
The capital markets consist of the primary market, where new
issues are distributed to investors, and the secondary market,
where existing securities are traded.


Stock exchange is an organized market for industrial, financial

and government market for industrial, financial and government
Stock exchange also helps the public sector undertaking and the
government in raising long term loans. In brief, a stock market
or stock exchange is a place where stocks and shares and other
term securities are bought and sold as per certain rules and


 It is an organized market for buying, selling and dealing in

 It is privately owned by individuals.
 It facilitates marketing in securities and also controls the
trading activities.
 It operates as per well defined rules and regulation.
 It is a recognized association and is controlled by the state
under a special act.


 Ready and continuous market

 Evaluation of securities
 Encouraging capital formation
 Providing safety and securities in dealings
 Encouraging public borrowing
 Helps speculations
 Regulating company management


Stock exchange provides various services to companies’ investor

and the society at large in the following manner:


Companies raising their capital through stock exchange will find

better response to their security issues.
• Stock exchange provides a large marker for the listed
securities. They enable the companies to collect
adequate capital for formation, expansion,
modernization or rationalization.

• Stock exchange increases the credit standing and

goodwill of the companies whose securities are listed.

• Listed securities get quicker and better response are

from investors.

• Market value of the securities is slightly more in

relation to earning and property values. This enhances
the financial status and increase the bargaining power
of the company in the collective ventures,merger,etc


Stock exchange, in fact, is a gift to the investors, who gain

confidence by providing continuous marketing facilities.

• Stock exchange guides the investors regarding the

choice of securities to be bought.

• Stock exchange maintains liquidity of securities by

enabling the holders to sell them whenever they need
liquid fund.

• Stock exchange provides information about the value of

securities to the investors through daily quotations of
listed securities.

• Stock exchange authorities properly evaluated the listed

secutities.therefore purchasing of listed securities
because less risky.

• Stock exchange provides capital for industrial growth.


Listing of securities means including the name of the company

security in the official list of the stock exchange for the
purpose of trading.

A stock exchange does not deal in the securities of all the
companies .it selects certain securities for transaction; such
securities are called listed securities.


• Certificate copies of M/A and A/A (Memorandum of

association and Article of Association)
• Consent of SEBI
• Director report
• Balance sheets
• Agreement with the managing director
• Agreement with underwriters
• Statement showing distribution of shares



The financial system in most western countries has undergone a

remarkable transformation. One feature of this development is
disintermediation. A portion of the funds involved in saving and
financing flows directly to the financial markets instead of
being routed via banks' traditional lending and deposit
operations. The general public's heightened interest in investing
in the stock market, either directly or through mutual funds, has
been an important component of this process. Statistics show
that in recent decades shares have made up an increasingly large
proportion of households' financial assets in many countries. In
the 1970s, in Sweden, deposit accounts and other very liquid
assets with little risk made up almost 60 per cent of households'
financial wealth, compared to less than 20 per cent in the 2000s.
The major part of this adjustment in financial portfolios has
gone directly to shares but a good deal now takes the form of
various kinds of institutional investment for groups of
individuals, e.g., pension funds, mutual funds, hedge funds,
insurance investment of premiums, etc. The trend towards forms
of saving with a higher risk has been accentuated by new rules
for most funds and insurance, permitting a higher proportion of
shares to bonds. Similar tendencies are to be found in other
industrialized countries. In all developed economic systems,
such as the European Union, the United States, Japan and other
developed nations, the trend has been the same: saving has
moved away from traditional (government insured) bank deposits
to more risky securities of one sort or another


Riskier long-term saving requires that an individual possess the

ability to manage the associated increased risks. Stock prices
fluctuate widely, in marked contrast to the stability of
(government insured) bank deposits or bonds. This is something
that could affect not only the individual investor or household,
but also the economy on a large scale. The following deals with
some of the risks of the financial sector in general and the stock
market in particular. This is certainly more important now that
so many newcomers have entered the stock market, or have
acquired other 'risky' investments (such as 'investment'
property, i.e., real estate and collectables).

With each passing year, the noise level in the stock market
rises. Television commentators, financial writers, analysts, and
market strategists are all overtalking each other to get investors'
attention. At the same time, individual investors, immersed in
chat rooms and message boards, are exchanging questionable and
often misleading tips. Yet, despite all this available
information, investors find it increasingly difficult to profit.
Stock prices skyrocket with little reason, then plummet just as
quickly, and people who have turned to investing for their
children's education and their own retirement become
frightened. Sometimes there appears to be no rhyme or reason to
the market, only folly.

This is a quote from the preface to a published biography about
the long-term value-oriented stock investor Warren Buffett.[2]
Buffett began his career with $100, and $105,000 from seven
limited partners consisting of Buffett's family and friends. Over
the years he has built himself a multi-billion-dollar fortune. The
quote illustrates some of what has been happening in the stock
market during the end of the 20th century and the beginning of
the 21st.

Financing a company through the sale of stock in a

company is known as equity financing. Alternatively, debt
financing (for example issuing bonds) can be done to avoid
giving up shares of ownership of the company. Unofficial
financing known as trade financing usually provides the major
part of a company's working capital (day-to-day operational
needs). Trade financing is provided by vendors and suppliers
who sell their products to the company at short-term, unsecured
credit terms, usually 30 days. Equity and debt financing are
usually used for longer-term investment projects such as
investments in a new factory or a new foreign market. Customer
provided financing exists when a customer pays for services
before they are delivered, e.g. subscriptions and insurance

India has a deep ingrained knowledge in commodity

trading (and particularly forward trading in
commodities), especially in the interior heartland.
For last 40 years or so, such forward (futures)
trading was banned in the country for a variety of
reasons and it is being revived now. The ban has
meant that two generations have lost touch with the
trading skills and the related knowledge levels in
the commodity space. Fortunately much of the skill
sets have migrated to stock exchanges.

In these intervening years, some regional

exchanges specializing in specific commodities,
where the bans were lifted, have carried on the
baton. Also large informal trading, primarily by
the speculative segment of the universe of market
participants has remained. This has led to a
mindset in the common man in the country that
commodity exchanges are purely speculative in
nature. The hedging and price discovery functions
that they perform are largely ignored today by the
cross section of the population.

markets the world over compared to equity

agrarian economy, needs to switch to commodity
derivatives to top the list of developed nations.

easy to understand and are based
on the fundamentals of demand
and supply. Retail investors
should understand the risks and
advantages of trading in
commodities futures before
taking a leap. Historically, prices
in commodities futures have been
less volatile compared with
equity and bonds, thus providing
an efficient portfolio
diversification option.

Like any other market, the one

for commodity futures plays a
valuable role in information
pooling and risk sharing. The
market mediates between buyers
and sellers of commodities thus
making the underlying market
more liquid.

Problem is complex and real in nature, lot of efforts have

undergone for the research by meeting various people and asking
them about their experience .various people have undergone
huge losses in the stock market lot of material has been
collected from the internet.

The research methodology consisted following steps:


The aim of this project as has already been mentioned was to

“sales and analysis of mutual funds.” For this our research
contains two parts-

a. To sale the products we have to first generate database on the basis of marketing

b. Analysis of different schemes of share market.


This step called for decision on the data sources, sampling plan
and contact methods.


Data was collected from primary and secondary data. The

various sources are:


This type of data does not exist; it is originated by primary

sources like personal interaction or field back forms,
questionnaires that act as tools for collecting data.


This type of data already exists, and used to generate

information as required. We collect the secondary data through
Internet, books, journals and magazines of the company, various
company broachers, talking with people.


The research approach adopted here was the survey method. But
other approaches also used such as observation research.


With respect to primary and secondary data, the information is

collected. Primary data tells us present scenario of financial
market. Secondary data means that to get the data from the
internet, company magazines, talking with people and convince.


Base on the above questionnaire data are collected by survey



 The sampling method, which is adopted, is Random Sampling.


3. The Analysis of survey has been done on % basis.



The primary data to be selected was based upon the response of

the respondents to the questionnaire designed. The questionnaire
designed was given to us from our immediate boss... The
questionnaire consists of closed ended questions.

A part of Questionnaire was targeted to know the personal

details of the respondents. Another part comprised of the self-
designed questionnaire and will consist of closed ended
questions with every question having its own importance and


The secondary data was collected by referring through web sites,

and the final data was analyzed systematically to achieve the
desired result.


For analyzing the data obtained after conducting the survey,

percentage method was used. All the views and data obtained
were also interpreted as clearly as possible.


The present investigation is a descriptive and marketing type of

study undertaken to estimate the comparative study of share
market analysis. The present study identifies views of
customers & analysis of share market along with the self-


For the purpose of analysis a sample size of respondents was

selected. The target group of the respondent was job holders and
an earning person whatever his/her age may be. The sample size
taken was 60.


The sampling method chosen for the project was “Random

Sampling”. This type of sampling is also known as chance
sampling or probability sampling where each and every item in
the population has an equal chance of inclusion in the sample
and each one of the possible samples. This procedure gives each
item an equal probability of being selected.






male and female

30 male
male female


The diagram helped us in judging the number and percentage of

males and females after conducting the survey; it was found that
out of customers were males and was females. Thus, we came to
know that 73% of the users were males and the remaining 27%
were females.


1. lot of efforts have been undergone to improve the

predication techniques .like earlier there was only

fundamental analysis being used but now technical analysis

has come into existence

2. Once the people who are involved in it. They play it like

gambling and they think that its same it is difficult to

change their mindset.

3. It’s difficult to make people aware about the market

knowledge it is very vast.

4. Last of technical thing are involved in it difficult for

everyone to go through it.


Today various people are investing in stock without having

proper knowledge about it , they only listen to their broker
sayings and in the end face huge losses , stock predication is
very difficult or say impossible no one can predict the future as
has been brilliant shown in the Hollywood movie paycheck

If people know the truth and have knowledge about the market
than can take some risks. Stock cant be predicted no one is sure
what going to happen the next movement it’s a much volatile
market. If someone is sure about the up trepanned than why the
stop loss being set if because there is no surety

Therefore, people should have knowledge about the market than

they should enter it as it would lead in minimizing the losses
and playing a more safe game of investing money. More reliable
techniques should come to facilitate people and it should be
simple also.
