THANK YOU Monkey business - A story about how stock market really works!!! Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them. The “Monkey Man” bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it! The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him. In the absence of the “Monkey Man” man, the assistant told the villagers. “Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that my boss has collected. Here’s a deal! I will sell them to you at $35 and when he returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each.” The villagers rounded up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys. Then they never saw the “Monkey Man” nor his assistant ever again, only monkeys everywhere! Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works!!!

STOCK EXCHANGE BSE NSE
Overview of Financial Markets
Indian Stock Markets are one of the oldest in Asia. Its history dates back to nearly 200 years ago
BSE is the oldest stock exchange in India started in 1875 and got permanent recognition from Govt. of India in 1965
2 primary stock exchanges in India – BSE & NSE accounting for more than 99% of total turnover
NSE & BSE - Market capitalization of more than 1 trillion
There are more than 7500 listed companies on BSE & NSE
BULLS & BEARS
A bull market is when everything in the economy is great, people are finding jobs, GDP is growing, and stocks are rising. Things are just plain rosy! Picking stocks during a bull market is easier because everything is going up. Bull markets cannot last forever though, and sometimes they can lead to dangerous situations if stocks become overvalued. If a person is an optimist, believing that stocks will go up, he is called a bull and said to have a bullish outlook.
A bear market is when the economy is bad, recession is looming, and stock prices are falling. Bear markets make it tough for investors to pick profitable stocks. One solution to this is to make money when stocks are falling using a technique called short selling. Another strategy is to wait on the sidelines until you feel that the bear market is nearing its end and only then start buying in anticipation of a bull market. If a person is a pessimist, believing that stocks are going to drop, he is called a bear and said to have a bearish outlook.
PIG & CHICKEN
Pigs are high-risk investors looking for the one big score in a short period of time. Pigs buy on hot tips and invest in companies without doing their due diligence. They get impatient, greedy, and emotional about their investments, and they are drawn to high-risk securities without putting in the proper time or money to learn about these investment vehicles. Professional traders love the pigs, as it's often from their losses that the bulls and bears reap their profits.
Chickens are afraid to lose anything. Their fear overrides their need to make profits and so they turn only to money-market securities or get out of the markets entirely. While it's true that you should never invest in something over which you lose sleep, you are also guaranteed never to see any return if you avoid the market completely and never take any risk
PRIMARY / SECONDARY MARKET
A market for new issues of shares, debentures and bonds, where investors apply directly to the issuer for allotment on a pre-specified basis (price, minimum application amount etc.)
A market of buyers and sellers who trade in securities that have already been issued in the primary market. Distinguished from the primary market in which the issuer sells shares directly to the investor . This is where the major transactions happen which result into frequent fluctuation of stock prices
DEPOSITORY / DEPOSITORY PARTICIPANTS
A depository holds the securities of investors in electronic form just like a bank holds cash of its customers. As in a Bank, investors can deposit/withdraw and transfer securities. The National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) is the first depository in India. The functions of NSDL are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
The Depository Participants (DPs) are the link between the Shareholder, the Company and NSDL. Banks, Financial Institutions, Custodians, Stock Brokers etc. can become DPs subject to their meeting certain requirements prescribed by NSDL and SEBI. NSDL publishes from time to time the list of DPs registered with them.
You can open your accounts with one or more DPs, as you like. The procedure for opening an account with the Depository Participant is similar to opening a Savings Bank Account with the Bank. After opening the account, you can hold shares of any number of companies in your account, provided all such companies have entered the depository system.

What is subprime Market ?
High Risk Home loan market, fluctuating interest rate due to fluctuating market condition
What is subprime Crisis ?
It is a economic problem which blocks liquidity in the global credit market.
In this, the person approaches bank for a loan .Bank checks for his credit rating .If the credit rating is poor then the bank denies to give loan. Now the person with good credit rating borrows loan of bulk amount, he then divides it in to lots and lends the money to no. of persons whose credit rating is poor at floating interest rate. those people become subprime borrowers and this type of borrowing is called subprime borrowing.
The person with good credit rating collects some securities from the subprime borrowers .
He then doesn’t wait for recovering the loan amt from them via monthly installment. He sells the securities to big institutional investors who have proportionate Fixed investment all over the world and repays the loan amount to the bank. Now the risk is transferred to the institutional investors. It means the subprime borrowers now have to pay the monthly installment to institutional investors.
Now If the Real Estate market prices come down then the interest rates raise. the subprime borrowers finds it difficult to cope with rising interest rate & monthly installments. So slowly they become defaulters.
Since the institutional investors incur huge losses in the market they start selling their investments in emerging market where their investment is doing good.
Their selling price far overweighs the amount of buying. This results in higher supply than demand. Hence the share prices fall affecting the entire share market.

Words of Wisdom
"You ought to be able to explain why you’re taking the job you’re taking, why you’re making the investment you’re making, or whatever it may be. And if it can’t stand applying pencil to paper, you’d better think it through some more. And if you can’t write an intelligent answer to those questions, don’t do it." Warren Buffett
Words of Wisdom
“ The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator. This means.....that he should be able to justify every purchase he makes and each price he pays by impersonal, objective reasoning that satisfies him that he is getting more than his money's worth for his purchase.” Ben Graham
