Manage Money

List of NSE Holidays in India

The trading of financial instruments is an exciting opportunity for people to grow their money. Each trading instrument is accompanied by its own risk and returns pattern; it varies from one instrument to another. A debt instrument comes with a fixed rate of return, but the return for stocks and shares fluctuates. Trading is to be done intelligently. Stock exchanges facilitate the trade of equities and mutual funds, whereas forex markets facilitate the trade of currencies. Individual traders, brokers, institutional clients such as corporates, speculators and arbitrageurs can indulge in online trading.
