trend analysis of Indian stock exchange

  1. 1. 1 CHAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND OF STUDY: STOCK MARKET:- Stock market refers to a market place where investors can buy and sell stocks. The price at which each buying & selling transaction takes is determined by the market force (that is demand & supply for a particular stock). A Stock market is a public market for the trading of company stock & derivatives 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 was estimated at about $62.8 trillion USD at the end of November 2013. The stock market is one of the most important sources for companies to raise money. This allows business to be publicity traded or raise additional capital for expansion by selling shares if ownership of the company in a public market. Infact, the stock market is often considered the primary indicator of a country’s economic strength & development. Rising share prices, for instance tend to be associated with increased business investment and vice versa. STOCK EXCHANGE :- A stock exchange is an entity which provides "trading" facilities for stock brokers and traders, t o trade stocks and other securities. Stock Exchanges are an organized market place, either corporation or Mutual organization, where members of t he organization gather to trade company stocks or other securities. Stock exchanges also provide facilities for the issue and redemption of Securities as well as other financial instruments and capital events including the PAYMENT OF INCOMES & DIVIDENDS:- The securities traded on a stock exchange include shares issued by Companies, unit trusts, derivatives, pooled investment products and bonds . To be able to trade a security on a certain stock exchange, it has to be listed there.
  2. 2. 2 Usually there is a central location at l east f or record keeping, but trade is less and less linked to such a physical place, as modern markets are electronic networks, which gives those advantages of speed and cost of transactions. Trade on an exchange is by members only. The initial offering of stocks and bonds to investors is by definition done in the primary market and subsequent trading is done in the secondary market. A stock exchange is often the most important component of a stock market. Supply and demand in stock markets is driven by various factors which, as in all free markets, affect t he price of stocks. There is usually no compulsion to issue stock via the stock exchange itself, nor must stock be subsequently traded on the exchange. Such trading is said to be off exchange or over-the-counter. This is the usual way that derivatives and bonds are traded. I ncreasingly, stock exchange .There is usually no compulsion to issue stock via t he stock exchange s are part of a global market. Market Trend Analysis of a Company: Analysis in terms of finance helps to find out the basic and critical factors affecting the economy of company, market and nation. It can be practiced at major through two methods: Fundamental and Technical. Fundamental Analysis: Fundamental analysis is the examination of the underlying forces that affect the interests of the economy, industry, and company. It tries to forecast the future movement of the capital market using signals from the economy, industry, and company. The presumption behind fundamental analysis is that a thriving economy fosters industrial growth which leads to development of companies. Fundamental analysis can be done by studying three prospects of capital market: a. Economic Analysis b. Industry Analysis c. Company Analysis Fundamental analysis is influenced by the other psychological factors such as perception, sentiment and so on, of investors. The proxy for the measure of this psychological factor is the past share price of company itself. Thus, an investor can not fully depend upon fundamental analysis for the decision of money investment and hence technical tools are used for better information and assurance of type of
  3. 3. 3 investment. Technical Analysis: A study of past share price behavior to predict the future trend is termed as technical analysis. Technical analysis is frequently used as a supplement to fundamental analysis. Technical analysis is based on the economic premise that forces of demand and supply determine the pattern of market price and the volume of trading in a share. Tools for technical analysis are listed here below: a. Charts [Line, Bar, Candlestick, Point and figure chart] b. Dow Theory c. Elliot Wave Theory d. Flow of Funds e. Market Structure f. Market Indicators OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY:- Every study is conducted within for some specific purpose or to solve some problem. When any research is conducted it has some primary objective that helps to solved main problem whereas secondary objective helps to solve peripheral problem. The primary objective & secondary objective of there are:- PRIMARY DATA:- investing in equity market in various sectors SECONDARY DATA:-  To find out in which investment option people invest most.  To find out how investor are motivated for investing in equity market.  To study the general investment criteria of people.  To know the people time horizon for investing in equity market & to know the rate of return expected by them.  To study the interest of people for future investment in equity market.  To assess the customer satisfaction level for investing in equity market.  To classify the different sector on the basis of investors behavior regarding
  4. 4. 4 investing in equity market. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY:- Ii is a way to systematically process in which necessary data & information are collected. After the decision about the purpose & type of report to be prepared the source for collection of data are dedicated. “Research is careful inquiry or examination to discover new information & relationship & to expand & to vary existing knowledge.” Research always starts with question or any problem & finds answer of problem by using scientific method; It gives complete knowledge about any problem or question. For this project the data has been collected both the source. That is:-  PRIMARY DATA  SECONDARY DATA PRIMARY DATA:- Primary data are the data which are collected from primary source of Organization where the data is generated. Primary data is collected for first time by investigator agencies which have not been used or collected previously. Under these sources I have collected data’s through questioner’s method. Questionnaire method:-  Interviews method  Observation method SECONDARY METHOD:- Secondary data on the other hand are collected from secondary source. That is from a data of Ventura securities Ltd. This has been collected previously and use previously. The data may be a published or unpublished source. Under this method information has been collected from the following ways:-  Magazines  Websites I have also used the secondary data for the study like some company resources like brochure, websites etc. LIMITATION OF THE STUDY:-
  5. 5. 5 Following limitations were encountered while preparing this project: Limited Data: - This project is done based on the data collected by the source of secondary medium. This method is however not much helpful as it fails to provide the essential facts and findings necessary for exact interpretation and analysis. There were limitations for primary data collection because of inaccessibility and confidentiality of documents of company. Limited period: - This project is based on the data available of limited period of time e.g. not more than that of one financial period of company. This is certainly not helpful to make this project report accurate in terms of various comaprisions and growth analysis. Limited area: - Also it was difficult to collect the data regarding the competitors and their financial information. Moreover, the topic chosen is very wide in terms of actual completion as there are various methods available for carrying out the analysis of a company. Whereas, data and area for the projects are available which make the situation contra dictionary and limits the scope. Type of data used: - This project is completely based on secondary data collected from various sources like internet, magazines, newspapers, and books etc.

  11. 11. 11 CHAPTER-3 HISTORICAL & INFORMATIVE DATA The Stock Market “A stock market is a public market for 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.” The size of the world stock market was estimated at about $36.6 trillion US at beginning of October 2008. The total world derivatives market has been estimated at about $791 trillion face or nominal value, 11 times the size of the entire world economy. The value of the derivatives market, because it is stated in terms of notional values, cannot be directly compared to a stock or a fixed income security, which traditionally refers to an actual value. Moreover, the vast majority of derivatives ‘cancel’ each other out (i.e. a derivative ‘bet on the event occurring is offset by a comparable derivative ‘bet’ on the event not occurring.). 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 of a corporation or mutual organization specialized in the business of bringing buyers and sellers of the organizations to a listing of stocks and securities together. The stock market in the United States is NYSE while in Canada; it is the Toronto Stock Exchange. Major European examples of stock exchanges include the London Stock Exchange, Paris Bourse, and the Deutsche Borse. Asian examples include the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and Bombay Stock Exchange. In Latin America, there are such exchanges as the BM&F Bovespa and the BMV. 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
  12. 12. 12 exchanges and commodity exchanges where traders may enter “verbal” bids and offer simultaneously. The other type pf stock exchange is a virtual kind, composed of a network of computers where trades are made electronically via traders. Actual traders are based on an auction market model 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 exchange provides real-time trading information on the listed securities, facilitating price discovery. History of Stock Markets Historian Fernand Braudel suggests that in Cairo in the 11th century Muslim and Jewish merchants had already set up ever form of trade association and had knowledge of every method of credit and payment, disproving the belief that these were invented later by Italians. In the 12th century in France the courratiers de change were concerned with managing and regulating the debts of agricultural communities on behalf of the banks. In the late 13th century Bruges commodity traders gathered inside the house of a man called van der beruse, and in 1309 they became the “Brugse Beruse”, institutionalizing what had been, until then an informal meeting. The idea quickly spread around Flanders and neighboring countries and “Beurzen” soon opened in Ghent and Amsterdam. In the middle of the 13th century Venetian bankers began to trading government securities. In1351, 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
  13. 13. 13 shareholders invest in business ventures and get a share of their profits – or losses. In 1602, the Dutch East India Company issued shares on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. It was the first company to issue stocks and bonds. Stock Market in India The first organized stock market in India was started in Bombay when the Native Share Stock Brokers’ Association known as Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) was formed by the brokers in Bombay. BSE was Asia’s oldest stock exchange. In 1894, the Ahemdabad Stock Exchange was started to facilitate dealings in shares of textile mills there. The Calcultta Stock Exchange was started in 1908 to provide a market for shares of plantations and jute mills. The Second World War saw great speculative activity in the country and the number of stock exchange rose from 7 in 1939 to 21 in 1945. Besides, these organized exchanges, there were a number of unorganized and unrecognized exchanges known as Kerb markets which functioned under a set of usages and conventions and did not have any set of rules which could enforced in courts of law. There were also illegal “Dabba” markets in which stocks and shares were also bought and sold. Under the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act of 1956, the Government of India has so far recognized 23 stock exchanges. Bombay is the premier exchange in the country. With the setting up of National Stock Exchange, all regional stock exchanges have lost relevance.Importance of Stock Market 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 ia 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. An economy where the stock market is on the rise considered to be an up and coming
  14. 14. 14 economy. 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. 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 transactions. 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. An important aspect of modern financial markets, however, including the stock markets, is absolute discretion. Business Transaction in Stock Market A typical investment transaction in a stock exchange will consist of four stages: Placing an order with a broker: A client places his order with a stock broker who alone is entitled to transact business in a stock exchange either to buy or to sell the shares of a company at fixed prices or at best market prices. Execution of the order: The broker or his authorized clerk will execute the order and the same will appear in the Stock Exchange Daily Official List which will include the number and price of shares which exchanged hands. Reporting the deal to the client: As soon as the deal is transacted, the brokers send a contract note to the client giving details of the security bought or sold, the price, the broker’s commission, etc. Settlement of transaction: there are two methods of settlement of transactions. In the case of ready delivery (or cash) transactions, payment has to be made immediately on the transfer of the securities for within a period of one to seven days. In the case of
  15. 15. 15 forward delivery, there is a system of carry-over i.e. post-ponement of delivery or payment involving a payment by one to another. This system of carry-over provides great scope for speculation in the forward market.
  16. 16. 16 CHAPTER-4 OVERVIEW OF CAPITAL MARKET IN INDIA Capital market is the market for long-term funds, just as the money market is the market for short-term funds. It refers to all facilities and the institutional arrangements for borrowing and lending term funds (medium-term and long-term funds).The supply of funds for the capital market comes largely from individual savers, corporate savings, banks, insurance companies, specialized financing agencies and the government. The Indian Capital Market is broadly divided into the Gilt-edged Market and the Industrial Securities Market. The Gilt-edged market refers to the market for government and semi-government securities, backed by Reserve Bank of India. The Industrial Securities Market refers to the market for shares and debentures of old and new companies. Two other segments : DFIs (Development Financial Institutions) and FIs (Financial Intermediaries) also compose the capital market of India. Further categorization is pictured here below: Capital Markets of India –Stock Exchanges in India “In terms of the legal structure, the stock exchange which are recognized under the securities contracts (regulation) Act in India, could be separated into two broad groups- 20 stock exchanges which are set up as companies, either limited by guarantees or by shares, and 2 stock exchanges which are functioning as Associations CAPITAL MARKET IN INDIA Government Securities (Gill-edged market) Industrial Securities Market Development Financial Institutions (DFIs) Financial Intermediaries Merchant Banks Others Venture Capital Companies Leasing Companies Mutual Funds IIBISFCs New Issue Market Old Issues Market [Stock Exchange] IFCI ICICI UTIIDBI
  17. 17. 17 of persons (AOP) viz. BSE & NSE. The 20 stock exchange which are available in India are as follows: Banglore, Bhubhaneshwar, Kolkata, Cochin, Delhi, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Uttar Pradesh, Ludhiana, Madras, Magadha, Vadodra, Guwahati, Pune, OTCEI, Ahmedabad, Bse, Madhya Pradesh. Of these, the stock exchanges of Ahmedabad, Banglore, Kolkata, Delhi, Hyderabad, Madhya Pradesh, Madras, Guwahati were given permanent recognition by central government of India at the time of setting up these stock exchanges. Apart from the NSE, all stock exchanges whether established as corporate bodies or Association of Persons (AOP’s) are non-profit organizations.” (report of committee on corporatization and demutualization of stock exchanges.) Of these 23 stock exchanges in the country, 20 are regional stock exchanges and the remaining three with All India jurisdiction are NSE and BSE . Separate modules are covered with regards to the structure and functioning and systems/procedure followed in NSE and BSE. Security and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) It is a board (autonomous body) created by the government of India in 1988 and given statutory form in 1992 with SEBI acts 1992. Its head office is in Mumbai, and other offices in Chennai, Kolkata and Delhi. SEBI is the regulator of securities markets in India. In 1998, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) was established by the government of India thought an executive resolution, and subsequently upgraded as a fully autonomous body (a statutory board) in the year 1992 with the passing of the Securities and Exchange Board of India act (SEBI Act) on 30th January 1992. In place of government control, a statutory and autonomous regulatory board with defined responsibilities, to cover both development and regulation of market, independent powers has been set up. Paradoxically this is a positive outcome of the securities scam of 1990-91.
  18. 18. 18 The basic objectives of the board were defined as:  To protect the interests of investors in securities;  To promote the development of securities market;  To regulate the securities market and;  For matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. SEBI has introduced:  Comprehensive regulatory measures  Prescribed registration norms  Eligibility criteria  The code obligations  Code of conduct for different intermediaries like, bankers to issue, merchant bankers, brokers and sub-brokers, registrars, portfolio managers, credit rating agencies, underwriters and others  It had frames bye-laws  Risk identification and risk management systems for clearing houses of stock exchanges, surveillance system etc. All this has made dealing in securities both safe and transparent to the end investor. Another significant event is the approval of trading in stock indices (like S&P CNX Nifty & SENSEX) in 2000 a market index is a convenient and effective product because of the following reasons:  It acts as a barometer for market behavior  It is used to benchmark portfolio performance  It is used in benchmark instruments like index futures and index options  It can be used for passive fund management as in case of index funds.
  19. 19. 19 Over the Counter Exchange of India (OCTEI) OTCEI was incorporated in October 1990 as a section 25 company under the companies Act 1956 and is recognized as a stock exchange under section 4 of the securities contracts regulation act,1956. The object of the OCTEI is “ To provide an alternate market for the securities of smaller companies, public-sector companies, closely-held companies desirous listing etc. It has been promoted jointly by UTI, ICICI, IDBI,SBI Capital Markets Ltd, IFCI, GIC and Canbank Financial Services Ltd. The exchange was set up with a multi-tier securities exchange model to aid enterprising promoters in raising finance for new project in cost effective manner to provide investors with a transparent and efficient mode of trading. OTCEI is intended to provide easy marketability and better liquidity of securities to an investor. Besides, it also facilitate transfer of shares listed here. Modeled along the lines of NASDAQ market, OTCEI introduces many novel concepts to the Indian Capital Market such as screen based nation wide trading, sponsorship of companies, markets making and scrip less trading. As a measure of success of these efforts , the exchange today has 115 listings and has assisted in providing capital for enterprises that has gone to build successful brand for themselves like VIP, Sonara tiles & Brilliant mineral water etc. Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) The BSE is the oldest stock exchange in Asia with rich heritage. Popularly known as BSE, it was established as “The native share and stock brokers’ association” in1875. It is the first stock exchange in country to obtain permanent recognition in 1956 from the government of India under the securities contracts (regulation) act, 1956. the exchanges pivotal and pre-eminent role in the development of Indian capital market is widely recognized and its index, SENSEX, is tracked worldwide. Earlier an association of persons (AOP), the exchange is now a demutualized and corporatized entity incorporated under the provisions of the companies act, 1956, pursuant to BSE
  20. 20. 20 (corporatization and demutualization) scheme, 2005notified by Securities and Exchange Board of India, SEBI. Bombay stock exchange limited received its Certificate of Incorporation on 8th August, 2005 and Certificate of Commencement on 12th August, 2005. The “DUE DATE” for taking over the business and operations of the BSE was fixed for 19th August, 2005, under the scheme. The exchange has succeeded the business and operations of BSE ongoing concern basis and its recognition as an exchange has been continued by SEBI. The exchange has a nation-wide reach with the presence of 417 cities and town of India. The systems and processes of the exchange are designed to safeguard the market integrity and enhance transparency in operations. During the year 2004-2005, the trading volumes on the exchange showed robust growth. Regional Stock Exchanges With the automation of all stock exchanges and the expansion of trading terminals of BSE and NSE across the country, investors have an easy access to the securities market. The nationwide reach of two stock exchange has affected the market structure in two ways: First, the business of other stock exchanges has declines significantly, as investors have preferred to trade in BSE and NSE as they provide deeper marketsa. Secondly, with the declining of trading volumes in other stock exchanges, the issuers feel that hardly any purpose is served by remaining listed in the regional stock exchange, which was introduced in the days of manual trading and open octroi system to encourage mobilization of resources and development of equity cult across the country, has thus lost its relevance in the days of automated trading. It is therefore widely felt that the concept of regional stock exchange needs to be abolished, similar recommendations have been made the committee on delisting of shares and the committee on demutualization of stock exchanges set up by SEBI. Interconnected Stock Exchange of India (ICSE) Inter-connected stock exchanges of India limited (ICSE) has been promoted by 14
  21. 21. 21 regional stock exchanges to provide cost-effective trading linkage/connectivity to all members of the participating exchanges, with the objective of widening the market for the securities listed on these exchanges, inter-connectivity of stock exchanges is a mechanism to enable a trader or dealer (trading member directly enrolled by ICSE) to deal with another trader or dealer through his own local trader work station located in his office.

Financial indexes are constructed to measure price movements of stocks, bonds, T-bills and other forms of investments. Stock market indexes are meant to capture the overall behaviour of equity markets. A stock market index is created by selecting a group of stocks that are representative of the whole market or a specified sector or segment of the market. An Index is calculated with reference to a base period and a base index value. Stock market indexes are useful for a variety of reasons. Some of them are:  They provide a historical comparison of returns on money invested in the stock market against other forms of investments such as gold or debt.  They can be used as a standard against which to compare the performance of an equity fund.  It is a lead indicator of the performance of the overall economy or a sector of the economy  Stock indexes reflect highly up to date information  Modern financial applications such as Index Funds, Index Futures, Index Options play an important role in financial investments and risk management
  27. 27. 27 Major Indices of NSE  S&P CNX NIFTY  CNX NIFTY JUNIOR  CNX 100(=S&P CNX NIFTY +CNX NIFTY JUNIOR)  CNX IT  BANK NIFTY  S&P CNX DEFTY  CNX MIDCAP  NIFTY MIDCAP 50 CNX midcap introduced on 18 July 2005 replacing CNX midcap 200. S&P CNX NIFTY S&P CNX Nifty is a well diversified 50 stock index accounting for 23 sectors of the economy.

  28. 28. 28 CNX NIFTY JUNIOR The next rung of liquid securities after S&P CNX Nifty is the CNX Nifty Junior. It may be useful to think of the S&P CNX Nifty and the CNX Nifty Junior as making up the 100 most liquid stocks in India. As with the S&P CNX Nifty, stocks in the CNX Nifty Junior are filtered for liquidity, so they are the most liquid of the stocks excluded from the S&P CNX Nifty. The maintenance of the S&P CNX Nifty and the CNX Nifty Junior are synchronized so that the two indices will always be disjoint sets; i.e. a stock will never appear in both indices at the same time. Hence it is always meaningful to pool the S&P CNX Nifty and the CNX Nifty Junior into a composite 100 stock index or portfolio.  CNX Nifty Junior represents about 11 % of the Free Float Market Capitalization as on Sep 30, 2010.  The traded value for the last six months of all Junior Nifty stocks is approximately 14% of the traded value of all stocks on the NSE  Impact cost for CNX Nifty Junior for a portfolio size of Rs.25 lakhs is 0.09%.

The S&P CNX 500 companies are disaggregated into 72 industry indices viz. S&P CNX Industry Indices. Industry weightages in the index reflect the industry weightages in the market. For e.g. if the banking sector has a 5% weightage in the universe of stocks traded on NSE, banking stocks in the index would also have an approx. representation of 5% in the index. S&P CNX DEFTY Almost every institutional investor and off-shore fund enterprise with an equity exposure in India would like to have an instrument for measuring returns on their equity investment in dollar terms. To facilitate this, a new index the S&P CNX Defty- Dollar Denominated S&P CNX Nifty has been developed. S&P CNX Defty is S&P CNX Nifty, measured in dollars.

  49. 49. 49 CONCLUSION The National Stock Exchange (NSE) is India’s leading stock exchange covering various cities and towns across the country. NSE provides a modern, fully automated screen-based trading system with national reach. The exchange has bought about un- parallel transparency, speed and efficiency, safety and market integrity. NSE’s trading volumes in the equity segment have grown rapidly with the average daily turnover increasing from Rs. 17 crores during 1994-1995 to Rs. 6,523 crores during 2005-06. During the year 2005-06, NSE reported a turnover of Rs. 1,569,556 crores in the equities segment. NSE has played a catalytic role in reforming the Indian securities market in terms of microstructure, market practices and trading volumes. The market today uses state-of- the-art information technology to provide an efficient and transparent trading, clearing and settlement mechanism, and had witnessed several innovations in products and services via demutualization of stock exchange governance; screen based trading, compression of settlement cycles, dematerialization and electronic transfer of securities, lending and borrowing securities, professionalizing of trading members fine-tuned risk management systems, emergence of clearing corporations to assume counterparty risks, market debt and derivative instruments and intensive use of information technology. In Conclusion, NSE successfully utilized technology as a tool for obtaining complete transformation of India’s security industry. As of today, around a decade after inception, every aspect of the equity spot and derivatives market India is now up to
  50. 50. 50 ‘International Standards’ or ahead of them. NSE has completed 16 years of its operations on 30 June 2010. The exchange is credited with technology innovation, speeding up of the process for dematerialization, introduction of effective risk containment measures and the introduction of derivatives trading. It is a dominant stock exchange accounting for 66 per cent of the traded volume in the cash segment and 99 per cent of the traded volume in the derivatives segment. The NSE has emerged as a technology-driven stock exchange. It has rightly positioned itself as “the exchange with difference”. In order to maintain its leading position among exchanges, it increases the number of users by trying to meet their growing and ever-changing needs through innovative efforts. Its aim is to continuously upgrade technology systems and trading practices. Major Defects in Trading in Indian Stock Exchanges:-There are certain serious defects while working of our stock exchanges, particularly the major exchanges such as Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE): 1. Lack of Integration: There are a large number of stock exchanges in the country, though BSE dominates them with over 70 per cent of all transactions in the country. There is nothing wrong in this, because in other countries too there are small exchanges, with one dominating (New York SE in USA and London SE in England). But the real problem in India is that there is no proper integration between all the stock exchanges with too much variation in prices of shares in different markets. 2. Specified and Non-specified shares: Indian stock exchanges follow the peculiar practice of classifying listed shares into ‘specified’ group and ‘unspecified’ group. The shares in the specified group are provided certain special facilities like settlement period, carry forward and clearing to promote speculation. At present, market liquidity is limited to thee speculative shares only, whereas investors would prefer liquidity for all shares, across a broad front. The only advantage of this artificial classification is that it is highly profitable to the stock exchange brokers through brokerage fees on the high
  51. 51. 51 volume of speculative business generated in these shares. 3. Margins: The margins levied by Indian SEs on speculative transactions are wholly of discretionary character, varying from share to share and from day to day, ranging from zero to 40 per cent. Despite a whole array of daily, carry forward and ad hoc margins, numerous defaults take place in several SEss whenever the market crashed. In other words, the imposition of margins has failed to curb excessive speculation in SEs. 4. The system of settlement and carry forward: It is responsible for high price fluctuations and high risk exposure to market participants. It is often responsible for excessive speculation. The carry forward system is unjustifiable and unhealthy. It is exclusively aimed at helping the spurious speculators. The liquidity provided by speculators who are not interested in paying or taking delivery on the settlement day cannot be genuine liquidity. Above all, the carry forward system is a powerful factor behind absurdly high levels of speculation in our stock exchanges and is of no help to genuine investors who are always interested in the earliest possible settlement of transactions. 5. Investors’ interest: The trading activity in our exchanges has been designed and evolved to benefit only the brokers and the intersects of the genuine investors are generally ignored. The investors’ confidence in the market machinery is weak, as most of them have a suspicion that they are always cheated on price by the brokers. 6. Weakness of SE management: The management organization and structure of Indian SEs, in general, is weak and deficient. The Government Body of a stock exchange does not have either the concern or the will to introduce necessary reforms in trading.
