This course will give you a ringside view of the working of the various components of the Indian Capital Market infrastructure.

1. The Stock Market’s Potential as a Wealth Equalizer

Currently one of the greatest sources of inequality is the huge disparity between the returns from holding stocks and holding cash. Interest rates are extremely low so that they hardly compensate for inflation, while stock markets are booming.

Active trading is the act of buying and selling securities based on short-term movements to profit from the price movements on a short-term stock chart.

Active traders believe that short-term movements and capturing the market trend are where the profits are made.
There are various methods used to accomplish an active trading strategy, each with appropriate market environments and risks inherent in the strategy.
