About the Book :
Capital market is the market for securities, where companies and governments can raise long-term funds. Selling stock and selling bonds are two ways to generate capital and long term funds. The Indian Equity Market unlike past depends mainly on monsoons, global funds flowing into equities and the performance of various companies. The Indian Equity Market is almost wholly dominated by two major stock exchanges -National Stock Exchange of India Ltd. (NSE) and The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The benchmark indices of the two exchanges - Nifty of NSE and Sensex of BSE are closely followed. The two exchanges also have an F&O (Futures and options) segment for trading in equity derivatives including the indices. Indian Equity Market at present is a lucrative field for investors. Indian stocks are profitable not only for long and medium-term investors but also the position traders, short-term swing traders and also very short term intra-day traders. In India as on December 30 2009, market capitalisation (BSE 500) at US$ 1638 billion was 150 per cent of GDP, matching well with other emerging economies and selected matured markets. To derive profit from the current market we need to learn the basics of Security Analysis and having invested we should also learn Portfolio Management to ensure that our capital does not get eroded.
