RavichandranProfessor, IIM AhmedabadNATIONAL STOCK EXCHANGE LTD.The Organisation:The National Stock Exchange of India Limited has genesis in the report ofthe High Powered Study Group on Establishment of New Stock Exchanges,which recommended promotion of a National Stock Exchange by financialinstitutions (FIs) to provide access to investors from all across the countryon an equal footing. Based on the recommendations, NSE was promoted byleading Financial Institutions at the behest of the Government of India andwas incorporated in November 1992 as a tax-paying company unlike otherstock exchanges in the country.On its recognition as a stock exchange under the Securities Contracts(Regulation) Act, 1956 in April 1993, NSE commenced operations in theWholesale Debt Market (WDM) segment in June 1994. The Capital Market(Equities) segment commenced operations in November 1994 andoperations in Derivatives segment commenced in June 2000.Our Mission:BABASAB PATIL
  8. 8. NSEs mission is setting the agenda for change in the securities markets inIndia. The NSE was set-up with the main objectives of: • Establishing a nation-wide trading facility for equities, debt instruments and hybrids, • Ensuring equal access to investors all over the country through an appropriate communication network, • Providing a fair, efficient and transparent securities market to investors using electronic trading systems, • Enabling shorter settlement cycles and book entry settlements systems, and • Meeting the current international standards of securities markets.The standards set by NSE in terms of market practices and technology hasbecome industry benchmarks and is being emulated by other marketparticipants. NSE is more than a mere market facilitator. Its that force whichis guiding the industry towards new horizons and greater opportunities.Our Logo: Say NSE’s LOGOThe logo of the NSE symbolises a single nationwide securities tradingfacility ensuring equal and fair access to investors, trading members andissuers all over the country.

Though the impetus for its establishment camefrom policy makers in the country, it has been set up as a public limitedcompany, owned by the leading institutional investors in the country.From day one, NSE has adopted the form of a demutualised exchange - theownership, management and trading is in the hands of three different sets ofpeople. NSE is owned by a set of leading financial institutions, banks,BABASAB PATIL
  11. 11. insurance companies and other financial intermediaries and is managed byprofessionals, who do not directly or indirectly trade on the Exchange. Thishas completely eliminated any conflict of interest and helped NSE inaggressively pursuing policies and practices within a public interestframework.The NSE model however, does not preclude, but in fact accommodatesinvolvement, support and contribution of trading members in a variety ofways. Its Board comprises of senior executives from promoter institutions,eminent professionals in the fields of law, economics, accountancy, finance,taxation, etc, public representatives, nominees of SEBI and one full timeexecutive of the Exchange.While the Board deals with broad policy issues, decisions relating to marketoperations are delegated by the Board to various committees constituted byit. Such committee includes representatives from trading members,professionals, the public and the management. The day-to-day managementof the Exchange is delegated to the Managing Director who is supported bya team of professional staff.Our Technology:Across the globe, developments in information, communication and networktechnologies have created paradigm shifts in the securities marketoperations. Technology has enabled organizations to build new sources ofcompetitive advantage, bring about innovations in products and services,and to provide for new business opportunities. Stock exchanges all over theworld have realised the potential of IT and have moved over to electronicBABASAB PATIL
  12. 12. trading systems, which are cheaper, have wider reach and provide a bettermechanism for trade and post trade execution.NSE believes that technology will continue to provide the necessary impetusfor the organisation to retain its competitive edge and ensure timeliness andsatisfaction in customer service. In recognition of the fact that technologywill continue to redefine the shape of the securities industry, NSE stresseson innovation and sustained investment in technology to remain ahead ofcompetition. NSEs IT set-up is the largest by any company in India. It usessatellite communication technology to energies participation from around400 cities spread all over the country. In the recent past, capacityenhancement measures were taken up in regard to the trading systems so asto effectively meet the requirements of increased users and associatedtrading loads. With upgradation of trading hardware, NSE can handle up to 1million trades per day. NSE has also put in place NIBIS (NSEs InternetBased Information System) for on-line real-time dissemination of tradinginformation over the Internet. In order to capitalise on in-house expertise intechnology, NSE set up a separate company, NSE.IT, in October 1999. Thisis expected to provide a platform for taking up new IT assignments bothwithin and outside India and attaining global exposure.NEAT is a state-of-the-art client server based application. At the server end,all trading information is stored in an in-memory database to achieveminimum response time and maximum system availability for users. Thetrading server software runs on a fault tolerant STRATUS main-framecomputer while the client software runs under Windows on PCs.BABASAB PATIL
  13. 13. The telecommunications network uses X.25 protocol and is the backbone ofthe automated trading system. Each trading member trades on the NSE withother members through a PC located in the trading members office,anywhere in India. The trading members on the Wholesale Debt Marketsegment are linked to the central computer at the NSE through dedicated64Kbps leased lines and VSAT terminals. These leased lines are multiplexedusing dedicated 2 Mbps, optical-fiber links. The WDM participants connectto the trading system through dial-up links.The Exchange uses powerful RISC -based UNIX servers, procured fromDigital and HP for the back office processing. The latest software platformslike ORACLE 7 RDBMS, GUPTA - SQL/ORACLE FORMS 4.5 Front -Ends, etc. have been used for the Exchange applications. The Exchangecurrently manages its data centre operations, system and databaseadministration, design and development of in-house systems and design andimplementation of telecommunication solutions.NSE is one of the largest interactive VSAT based stock exchanges in theworld. Today it supports more than 3000 VSATs and is expected to grow tomore than 4000 VSATs in the next year.

This coupled with the nation wide VSAT network makes NSE the countryslargest Information Technology user.In an ongoing effort to improve NSEs infrastructure, a corporate networkhas been implemented, connecting all the offices at Mumbai, Delhi, Calcuttaand Chennai. This corporate network enables speedy inter-officecommunications and data and voice connectivity between offices.In keeping with the current trend, NSE has gone online on the Internet.Apart from having a 2mbps link to VSNL and our own domain for internalbrowsing and e-mail purposes, we have also set up our own Web site.Currently, NSE is displaying its live stock quotes on the web site(, which are updated online.BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF NSE:Mr. S.

  17. 17. Stock market indexA stock Market Index is a Market. It should capture the behaviour of theoverall equity market. Movements of the index should represent the returnsobtained by "typical" portfolios in the country.BABASAB PATIL
  18. 18. The basic idea in an indexEvery stock price moves for two possible reasons: news about the company(e.g. a product launch, or the closure of a factory, etc.) or news about thecountry (e.g. nuclear bombs, or a budget announcement, etc.). The job of anindex is to purely capture the second part, the movements of the stockmarket as a whole (i.e. news about the country). This is achieved byaveraging. Each stock contains a mixture of these two elements - stock newsand index news. When we take an average of returns on many stocks, theindividual stock news tends to cancel out. On any one day, there would begood stock-specific news for a few companies and bad stock-specific newsfor others. In a good index, these will cancel out, and the only thing left willbe news that is common to all stocks. The news that is common to all stocksis news about India. That is what the index will capture.BABASAB PATIL
  19. 19. Importance of IndexTraditionally, indices have been used as information sources. By looking atan index we know how the market is faring. This information aspect alsofigures in myriad applications of stock market indices in economic research.This is particularly valuable when an index reflects highly up-to-dateinformation (a central issue which is discussed in detail ahead) and theportfolio of an investor contains illiquid securities - in this case, the index isa lead indicator of how the overall portfolio will fare. In recent years, indiceshave come to the fore owing to direct applications in finance, in the form ofindex funds and index derivatives. Index funds are funds which passively`invest in the index. Index derivatives allow people to cheaply alter theirrisk exposure to an index (this is called hedging) and to implement forecastsabout index movements (this is called speculation). Hedging using indexderivatives has become a central part of risk management in the moderneconomy. These applications are now a multi-trillion dollar industryworldwide, and they are critically linked up to market indices. Finally,indices serve as a benchmark for measuring the performance of fundmanagers. An all-equity fund should obtain returns like the overall stockmarket index. A 50:50 debt: equity fund should obtain returns close to thoseobtained by an investment of 50% in the index and 50% in fixed income. Awell-specified relationship between an investor and a fund manager shouldexplicitly define the benchmark against which the fund manager will becompared, and in what fashion.BSE Sensex:BSE-SENSEX, short form of the BSE-Sensitive Index, is a "MarketCapitalization-Weighted" index of 30 stocks representing a sample of large,BABASAB PATIL
  20. 20. well-established and financially sound companies. It is the oldest index inIndia and has acquired a unique place in the collective consciousness ofinvestors. The index is widely used to measure the performance of the Indianstock markets. BSE-SENSEX is considered to be the pulse of the Indianstock markets as it represents the underlying universe of listed stocks at TheStock Exchange, Mumbai. Further, as the oldest index of the Indian Stockmarket, it provides time series data over a fairly long period of time (since1978-79). Over the years, BSE-SENSEX has become one of the mostprominent brands in the countryS&P CNX Nifty;S&P CNX Nifty is a well-diversified 50 stock index accounting for 23sectors of the economy. It is used for a variety of purposes such asbenchmarking fund portfolios, index based derivatives and index funds.S&P CNX Nifty is owned and managed by India Index Services andProducts Ltd. (IISL), which is a joint venture between NSE and CRISIL.IISL is Indias first specialised company focused upon the index as a coreproduct. IISL have a consulting and licensing agreement with Standard &Poors (S&P), who are world leaders in index services. • The average total traded value for the last six months of all Nifty stocks is approximately 58% of the traded value of all stocks on the NSE • Nifty stocks represent about 60% of the total market capitalization as on March 31, 2005.BABASAB PATIL
  21. 21. • Impact cost of the S&P CNX Nifty for a portfolio size of Rs.5 million is 0.07% • S&P CNX Nifty is professionally maintained and is ideal for derivatives tradingThe ups and downs of an index:They reflect the changing expectations of the stock market about futuredividends of Indias corporate sector. When the index goes up, it is becausethe stock market thinks that the prospective dividends in the future will bebetter than previously thought. When prospects of dividends in the futurebecome pessimistic, the index drops. The ideal index gives us instant-to-instant readings about how the stock market perceives the future of Indiascorporate sector.Kinds of indices exist:The most important type of market index is the broad-market index,consisting of the large, liquid stocks of the country. In most countries, asingle major index dominates benchmarking, index funds, index derivativesand research applications. In addition, more specialised indices often findinteresting applications. In India, we have seen situations where a dedicatedindustry fund uses an industry index as a benchmark. In India, where clearcategories of ownership groups exist, it becomes interesting to examine theperformance of classes of companies sorted by ownership group.BABASAB PATIL

For shares that are traded in the compulsory damaterialisedmode the market lot of these shares is one. Normal market consists ofvarious book types wherein orders are segregated as Regular lot orders,Special Term orders, Negotiated Trade Orders and Stop Loss ordersdepending on their order attributes.Odd Lot Market:All orders whose order size is less than the regular lot size are traded in theodd-lot market. An order is called an odd lot order if the order size is lessthan regular lot size. These orders do not have any special terms attributesattached to them. In an odd-lot market, both the price and quantity of boththe orders (buy and sell) should exactly match for the trade to take place.Currently the odd lot market facility is used for the Limited Physical MarketBABASAB PATIL
  36. 36. as per the SEBI directives.Spot Market:Spot orders are similar to the normal market orders except that spot ordershave different settlement periods vis-à-vis normal market. These orders donot have any special terms attributes attached to them. Currently the SpotMarket is not in use.Order Books:The NSE trading system provides complete flexibility to members in thekinds of orders that can be placed by them. Orders are first numbered andtime-stamped on receipt and then immediately processed for potentialmatch. Every order has a distinctive order number and a unique time stampon it. If a match is not found, then the orders are stored in different books.Orders are stored in price-time priority in various books in the followingsequence:-Best Price-Within Price, by time priority.Price priority means that if two orders are entered into the system, the orderhaving the best price gets the higher priority. Time priority means if twoorders having the same price are entered, the order that is entered first getsthe higher priority.The Equities segment has following types of books:BABASAB PATIL
  37. 37. Regular Lot Book;The Regular Lot Book contains all regular lot orders that have none of thefollowing attributes attached to them.- All or None (AON)- Minimum Fill (MF)- Stop Loss (SL)Special Terms Book;The Special Terms book contains all orders that have either of the followingterms attached:- All or None (AON)- Minimum Fill (MF)Negotiated Trade Book;The Negotiated Trade book contains all negotiated order entries captured bythe system before they have been matched against their counter party tradeentries. These entries are matched with identical counter party entries only.It is to be noted that these entries contain a counter party code in addition toother order details.Stop-Loss Book;Stop Loss orders are stored in this book till the trigger price specified in theorder is reached or surpassed. When the trigger price is reached orBABASAB PATIL
  38. 38. surpassed, the order is released in the Regular lot book.The stop loss condition is met under the following circumstances:Sell order - A sell order in the Stop Loss book gets triggered when the lasttraded price in the normal market reaches or falls below the trigger price ofthe order.Buy order - A buy order in the Stop Loss book gets triggered when the lasttraded price in the normal market reaches or exceeds the trigger price of theorder.Odd Lot Book:The Odd lot book contains all odd lot orders (orders with quantity less thanmarketable lot) in the system. The system attempts to match an active oddlot order against passive orders in the book. Currently, pursuant to a SEBIdirective, the Odd Lot Market is being used for orders that have quantity lessthan or equal to 500 viz. the Limited Physical Market.Spot Book;The Spot lot book contains all spot orders (orders having only the settlementperiod different) in the system. The system attempts to match an active spotlot order against the passive orders in the book. Currently the Spot Marketbook type is not in use.Auction Book;BABASAB PATIL
  39. 39. This book contains orders that are entered for all auctions. The matchingprocess for auction orders in this book is initiated only at the end of thesolicitor period.Order Matching Rules:The best buy order is matched with the best sell order. An order may matchpartially with another order resulting in multiple trades. For order matching,the best buy order is the one with the highest price and the best sell order isthe one with the lowest price. This is because the system views all buyorders available from the point of view of a seller and all sell orders from thepoint of view of the buyers in the market. So, of all buy orders available inthe market at any point of time, a seller would obviously like to sell at thehighest possible buy price that is offered. Hence, the best buy order is theorder with the highest price and the best sell order is the order with thelowest price.Members can proactively enter orders in the system, which will be displayedin the system till the full quantity is matched by one or more of counter-orders and result into trade(s) or is cancelled by the member. Alternatively,members may be reactive and put in orders that match with existing ordersin the system. Orders lying unmatched in the system are passive orders andorders that come in to match the existing orders are called active orders.Orders are always matched at the passive order price. This ensures that theearlier orders get priority over the orders that come in later.Order Conditions:BABASAB PATIL
  40. 40. A Trading Member can enter various types of orders depending upon his/herrequirements. These conditions are broadly classified into three categories:time related conditions, price-related conditions and quantity relatedconditions.Time Conditions:DAY - A Day order, as the name suggests, is an order which is valid for theday on which it is entered. If the order is not matched during the day, theorder gets cancelled automatically at the end of the trading day.GTC - A Good Till Cancelled (GTC) order is an order that remains in thesystem until the Trading Member cancels it. It will therefore be able to spantrading days if it does not get matched. The Exchange notifies the maximumnumber of days a GTC order can remain in the system from time to time.GTD - A Good Till Days/Date (GTD) order allows the Trading Member tospecify the days/date up to which the order should stay in the system. At theend of this period the order will get flushed from the system. Each day/datecounted is a calendar day and inclusive of holidays. The days/date countedare inclusive of the day/date on which the order is placed.IOC - An Immediate or Cancel (IOC) order allows a Trading Member to buyor sell a security as soon as the order is released into the market, failingwhich the order will be removed from the market. Partial match is possiblefor the order, and the unmatched portion of the order is cancelledimmediately.BABASAB PATIL

Price Conditions;Limit Price/Order – An order that allows the price to be specified whileentering the order into the system.Market Price/Order – An order to buy or sell securities at the best priceobtainable at the time of entering the order.Stop Loss (SL) Price/Order – The one that allows the Trading Member toplace an order which gets activated only when the market price of therelevant security reaches or crosses a threshold price. Until then the orderdoes not enter the market.A sell order in the Stop Loss book gets triggered when the last traded pricein the normal market reaches or falls below the trigger price of the order. Abuy order in the Stop Loss book gets triggered when the last traded price inthe normal market reaches or exceeds the trigger price of the order.E.g. If for stop loss buy order, the trigger is 93.00, the limit price is 95.00and the market (last traded) price is 90.00, then this order is released into thesystem once the market price reaches or exceeds 93.00.

For example, an orderof 1000 units with minimum fill 200 will require that each trade be for atleast 200 units. In other words there will be a maximum of 5 trades of 200each or a single trade of 1000. The Exchange may lay down norms of MFfrom time to time.AON - All or None orders allow a Trading Member to impose the conditionthat only the full order should be matched against.

  74. 74. Auction SaleThe Exchange on behalf of trading members for settlement related reasonsinitiates auctions. The main reason is shortage. There are three types ofparticipants in the auction market:  Initiator: The party who initiates the auction process is called an initiator.  Competitor: The party who enters on the same side as of the initiator is called a competitor.  Solicitor: The party who enters on the opposite side as of the initiator is called a competitor.The trading members can participate in the exchange-initiated auction byentering orders as solicitors. E.g. if the exchange conducts a Buy-in action,the trading members entering sell orders are called solicitors. When theauction starts, the competitor period for that auction starts. Competitorperiod is the period during which competitor orders entries are allowed.Competitor orders are the orders that compete with the initiators order i.e. ifthe initiator’s order is a buy order, then all the buy order for that auctionother then the initiator’s order are competitors order. And if the initiator’sorder is a sell order for that auction other than the initiation’s order arecompetitor’s orders.After the competitor’s period ends, the solicitor’s period for that that auctionstarts. Solicitors order is the period during which solicitors order areallowed. Solicitors order are the orders, which are opposite to the initiator’sBABASAB PATIL
  75. 75. order i.e. if the initiator’s order is a buy order than all the sell order for thatauction are solicitors order & if the initiator order is a sell order, then all thebuy order for that auction are solicitors order.After solicitor’s period, order matching takes place. The system calculatestrading price for the auction & all possible trade for the auction aregenerated at the calculated trading price. After this the auction is said to becomplete. Competitor period & solicitor’s period for any auction are set bythe exchange.Entering Auction order:Auction order entry allows the user to enter orders into auctions that are currentlyrunning.Auction Order Modification:The user is not allowed to modify any auction orders.Auction Order Cancellation:The user can cancel any solicitors order placed by him in any auctionprovided the solicitors period for that auction is not over.BABASAB PATIL
  76. 76. Auction Order Matching:When the solicitor’s period for auction is over, auction order matching starsfor that auction. During this process, the system calculates the trading pricefor that auction based on the initiator’s order entered during the competitor& solicitor’s period. At present for exchange-initiated auction, the matchingtakes place at the respective solicitors order price.All auction orders are entered into the auction order book. The rules formatching of auction are similar to that of the regular lot book except for thefollowing point; 1) Auction order matching takes place at the end of for the solicitor’s period for the auction. 2) Auction matching takes place only across orders belonging to the same auction. 3) All auction trades take place at the auction price.Example:Auction is held in TISCO for 5,000 shares.  The closing price of TISCO on that day was Rs. 155.0  The last trade price of TISCO on that day was Rs. 150.0  The price of TISCO last Friday was Rs. 151.0  The previous day’s close price of TISCO was Rs. 160.0BABASAB PATIL
