INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

The stock broking industry is a service-oriented industry where brokers act as


agents for investors when a security is bought or sold and are compensated with a
commission. Investors would not hesitate to switch to alternative brokerage houses
if they do not obtain satisfaction. Providing quality service and hence customer
satisfaction should thus be recognised as a key strategy and a crucial element of
long-run success and profitability for stock broking businesses.
Little has been done towards understanding the expectations investors hold from
their stockbrokers. Since expectations serve as benchmark to gauge the service
level of brokers, the delivery of services that exceed customer expectations is one
strategy that can give firms a competitive advantage. Therefore, it would seem
beneficial for stockbrokerage firms, in a dynamic economic environment like India, to
provide service at a good scale of quality.

MAJOR STOCK EXCHANGES IN INDIA

started operations in June 1994, with trading on the Wholesale Debt Market Segment.
Subsequently it launched the Capital Market Segment in November 1994 as a trading platform for
equities and the Futures and Options Segment in June 2000 for various derivative instruments.

been harnessed to deliver the services to the investors across the country at the cheapest
possible cost. It provides a nation-wide, screen-based, automated trading system, with a high
degree of transparency and equal access to investors irrespective of geographical location. The
high level of information dissemination through on-line system has helped in integrating retail
investors on a nation-wide basis. The standards set by the exchange in terms of market practices,
Products, technology and service standards have become industry benchmarks and are being
replicated by other market participants. Within a very short span of time, NSE has been able to
achieve all the objectives for which it was set up. It has been playing a leading role as a change

registered a phenomenal increase from 992 in the year 1980 to about 4800
companies by the end of July 2005 and their combined market capitalization rose from Rs.
5,421 crores to around Rs. 18, 00,000crores at end of July 2005.These factors necessitated

more effective manner and providing a better representation of the increased equity
stocks, market capitalization as also the newly emerged industry groups. Towards
this end, the Exchange constructed and launched on 27th May 1994, two index series

lists of this Exchange have been considered for inclusion in the sample for `BSE-

200'. The selection of companies has primarily been done on the basis of current
market capitalization of the listed scripts on the exchange. Besides market capitalization, the
market activity of the companies as reflected by the volumes of turnover and certain
fundamental factors were considered for the final selection of the 200 companies.

CURRENCY
The currency market is the largest and most liquid financial market in the
world with a turnover of more than $ 5 Trillion on a daily basis. With the
introduction of currency derivatives in 2008, the Indian market is poised
for growth by increasing its share in the world forex trade.
Swastika extends the opportunity to benefit from this market in India. We
offer a simple, convenient and profitable platform to trade and hedge in
the Currency derivatives market and diversify your investment portfolio

How are currency prices determined?


Currency prices are affected by a variety of economic and political
conditions, but probably the most important are interest rates,
international trade, inflation, and political stability. Sometimes
governments actually participate in the foreign exchange market to
influence the value of their currencies. They do this either by flooding the
market with their domestic currency in an attempt to lower the price or,
conversely, buying in order to raise the price. This is known as central
bank intervention. Any of these factors, as well as large market orders,
can cause high volatility in currency prices. However, the size and volume
of the FOREX market make it impossible for any one entity to drive the
market for any length of time.

P a g e | 35

CURRENCY TRADING BASICS


The foreign exchange market is the term given to the worldwide financial
market which is both decentralized and over-the-counter, which
specializes in trading back and forth between different types of
currencies. This market is also known as the Forex market. In recent
times, both investors and traders located all around the world have begun
to notice and recognize the foreign exchange market as an area of
interest, which is speculated to contain opportunity.
However, before considering treading these waters, it is important to first
understand how transactions are conducted within the foreign exchange
market. It is also necessary to first explain what the basics are of trading
foreign currency. Failure to fully and completely understand this art prior
to journeying off into this market would render a person lost in a matter of
minutes, just where they would never expect it. Thus, this article has been
presented, intending to explain currency trading basics thoroughly.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKET FOR


BEGINNERS
The foreign exchange market or forex market as it is often called is the
market in which currencies are traded. Currency Trading is the worlds
largest market consisting of almost trillion in daily volume and as
investors learn more and become more interested, the market continues
to rapidly grow. Not only is the forex market the largest market in the
world, but it is also the most liquid, differentiating it from the other
markets. In addition, there is no central marketplace for the exchange of
currency, but instead the trading is conducted over-the-counter. Unlike
the stock market, this decentralization of the market allows traders to
choose from a number of different dealers to make trades with and allows
for comparison of prices. Typically, the larger a dealer is the better access
they have to pricing at the largest banks in the world, and are able to pass
that on to their clients. The spot currency market is open twenty-four
hours a day, five days a week, with currencies being traded around the
world in all of the major financial centers.Learn more about currency
trading online.
All trades that take place in the foreign exchange market involve the
buying of one currency and the selling of another currency
simultaneously. This is because the value of one currency is determined
by its comparison to another currency. The first currency of a currency
pair is called the base currency, while the second currency is called the
counter currency. The currency pair shows how much of the counter
currency is needed to purchase one unit of the base currency. Currency
pairs can be thought of as a single unit that can be bought or sold. When
purchasing a currency pair, the base currency is being bought, while the
counter currency is being sold. The opposite is true, when the sale of a
currency pair takes place. There are four major currency pairs that are
traded most often in the foreign exchange market. These include the
EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, and USD/CHF.

TRADING

HOW DOES THE FOREX MARKET DIFFER


FROM OTHER MARKETS?
Unlike stocks, futures or options, currency trading does not take place on a
regulated exchange. It is not controlled by any central governing body, there are
no clearing houses to guarantee the trades and there is no arbitration panel to
adjudicate disputes. All members trade with each other based on credit agreements.
Essentially, business in the largest, most liquid market in the world depends on
nothing more than a metaphorical handshake
The FX market is different from other markets in some other key ways that are sure
to raise eyebrows. Think that the EUR/USD is going to spiral downward? Feel free
to short the pair at will. There is no uptick rule in FX as there is in stocks. There are
also no limits on the size of your position (as there are in futures); so, in theory, you
could sell $100 billion worth of currency if you had the capital to do it. If your biggest
Japanese client, who also happens to golf with the governor of the Bank of Japan
tells you on the golf course that BOJ is planning to raise rates at its next meeting,
you could go right ahead and buy as much yen as you like. No one will ever
prosecute you for insider trading should your bet pay off. There is no such thing as
insider trading in FX; in fact, European economic data, such as German
employment figures, are often leaked days before they are officially released.

P a g e | 43

WHERE IS THE COMMISSION IN FOREX


TRADING?
Investors who trade stocks, futures or options typically use a broker, who acts as
an agent in the transaction. The broker takes the order to an exchange and
attempts to execute it as per the customer's instructions. For providing this
service, the broker is paid a commission when the customer buys and sells the
tradable instrument.
The FX market does not have commissions. Unlike exchange-based markets, FX
is a principals-only market. FX firms are dealers, not brokers. This is a critical
distinction that all investors must understand. Unlike brokers, dealers
assume market risk by serving as a counterparty to the investor's trade. They do
not charge commission; instead, they make their money through the bid-ask
spread.
In FX, the investor cannot attempt to buy on the bid or sell at the offer like in
exchange-based markets. On the other hand, once the price clears the cost of the
spread, there are no additional fees or commissions. Every single penny gain is
pure profit to the investor. Nevertheless, the fact that traders must always
overcome the bid/ask spread makes scalping much more difficult in FX.

P a g e | 44

WHAT IS A PIP?
Pip stands for "percentage in point" and is the smallest increment of trade in FX.
In the FX market, prices are quoted to the fourth decimal point. For example, if a
bar of soap in the drugstore was priced at $1.20, in the FX market the same bar of
soap would be quoted at 1.2000. The change in that fourth decimal point is called
1 pip and is typically equal to 1/100th of 1%. Among the major currencies, the
only exception to that rule is the Japanese yen. One Japanese yen is now worth
approximately US$0.01; so, in the USD/JPY pair, the quotation is only taken out
to two decimal points (i.e. to 1/100th of yen, as opposed to 1/1000th with other
major currencies).

WHAT ARE YOU REALLY SELLING OR


BUYING IN THE CURRENCY MARKET?
The short answer is "nothing". The retail FX market is purely a speculative
market. No physical exchange of currencies ever takes place. All trades exist
simply as computer entries and are netted out depending on market price. For
dollar-denominated accounts, all profits or losses are calculated in dollars and
recorded as such on the trader's account.
The primary reason the FX market exists is to facilitate the exchange of one
currency into another for multinational corporations that need to trade currencies
continually (for example, for payroll, payment for costs of goods and services
from foreign vendors, and merger and acquisition activity). However, these dayto-day corporate needs comprise only about 20% of the market volume. Fully
80% of trades in the currency market are speculative in nature, put on by large
financial institutions, multibillion dollar hedge funds and even individuals who
want to express their opinions on the economic and geopolitical events of the
day.

P a g e | 45

WHICH CURRENCIES ARE TRADED IN THE


FOREX MARKET?
Although some retail dealers trade exotic currencies such as the Thai baht or the
Czech koruna, the majority trade the seven most liquid currency pairs in the world,
which are the four "majors":
EUR/USD (euro/dollar)
USD/JPY (dollar/Japanese yen)
GBP/USD (British pound/dollar)
USD/CHF (dollar/Swiss franc)
and the three commodity pairs:
AUD/USD (Australian dollar/dollar)
USD/CAD (dollar/Canadian dollar)
NZD/USD (New Zealand dollar/dollar)
These currency pairs, along with their various combinations (such as EUR/JPY,
GBP/JPY and EUR/GBP), account for more than 95% of all speculative trading in
FX. Given the small number of trading instruments - only 18 pairs and crosses are
actively traded - the FX market is far more concentrated than the stock market.

WHAT IS A CURRENCY CARRY TRADE?


Carry is the most popular trade in the currency market, practiced by both
the largest hedge funds and the smallest retail speculators. The carry
trade rests on the fact that every currency in the world has an interest rate
attached to it. These short-term interest rates are set by the central
banks of these countries: the Federal Reserve in the U.S., the Bank of
Japan in Japan and the Bank of England in the U.K.
The idea behind the carry is quite straightforward. The trader goes long
the currency with a high interest rate and finances that purchase with a
currency with a low interest rate. For example, in 2005, one of the best
pairings was the

INTRODUCTION OF
FOREIGN EXCHANGE

FOREX
MARKERT

P a g e | 47

The foreign exchange market (forex, FX, or currency market) is a global


decentralized market for the trading of currencies. The main participants in this
market are the larger international banks. Financial centers around the world
function as anchors of trading between a wide range of multiple types of buyers and
sellers around the clock, with the exception of weekends. The foreign exchange
market determines the relative values of different currencies.[1]
The foreign exchange market works through financial institutions, and it operates on
several levels. Behind the scenes banks turn to a smaller number of financial firms
known as dealers, who are actively involved in large quantities of foreign exchange
trading. Most foreign exchange dealers are banks, so this behind-the-scenes market
is sometimes called the interbank market, although a few insurance companies
and other kinds of financial firms are involved. Trades between foreign exchange
dealers can be very large, involving hundreds of millions of dollars.[citation
needed]
Because of the sovereignty issue when involving two currencies, Forex has
little (if any) supervisory entity regulating its actions.
The foreign exchange market assists international trade and investments by
enabling currency conversion. For example, it permits a business in the United
States to import goods from the European Union member states,
especially Eurozone members, and payeuros, even though its income is in United
States dollars. It also supports direct speculation and evaluation relative to the value
of currencies, and the carry trade, speculation based on the interest rate differential
between two currencies.[2]
In a typical foreign exchange transaction, a party purchases some quantity of one
currency by paying for some quantity of another currency. The modern foreign
exchange market began forming during the 1970s after three decades of
government restrictions on foreign exchange transactions (the Bretton Woods
system of monetary management established the rules for commercial and financial
relations among the world's major industrial states after World War II), when
countries gradually switched to floating exchange rates from the previous exchange
rate regime, which remained fixed as per the Bretton Woods system.

HOW FOREX IS UNIQUE


Fewer Rules: Unlike the trading of stocks, futures or options, currency trading
does not take place on an exchange with rules, like the New York Stock
Exchange. It is not controlled by any central governing body, and there are
no clearing houses to make sure the party you are buying the currency from
actually pays up. In fact, if you had exclusive information, and used it to make
a lot of money, legal issues would not arise, like they would it in the stock
market.
No Commissions: There are no exchange, brokerage or clearing fees in the
FX market. Instead, brokers make money on the difference in price you pay to
buy, or the amount you receive when you sell, currencies.
Trade Whenever You Want: Forex markets are open 24 hours a day, so if you
are a night owl or early riser you can set your own trading schedule.
No Limit to How Much Currency You can Buy: If you had $1 billion U.S. dollars
you wanted to sell, you could do it! There's no limit to how much money you
can buy or sell.
Easy to Get In and Out: You can buy and sell currencies with the click of a
button, instantaneously. The market is so large that you will never be stuck if
you wanted to get rid of or buy - your stockpile of currency.

MAKING AND LOSING MONEY


How People Make or Lose Money Doing It
By converting your money into a different currency, you are hoping that
the new currency increases in value. When you convert back to your
initial currency, ideally you will have more money than you started with.
Let's take a look at a simple example of how someone can make money
from a forex transaction. Suppose you have $900 U.S. dollars and you
exchange that for $1000 Canadian dollars. One week later, the
CAD/USD exchange rate goes up from 0.90 to 1.0, so the Canadian dolar
which you own has increased in value compared to the U.S. dollar. You
could then exchange the $1000 CAD you have back into U.S. dollars and
you would receive $1000 USD.
So you started with $900 USD, you now have $1000 USD, a profit of
$100 USD.

BUYING AND SELLING


What are you really selling or buying in the currency market?
You are buying and selling money. In the forex market, think of money as
a commodity, you are buying a currency hoping that its value will
increase, and if you are selling you are betting that it will decrease. Like
any other commodity, the price of currencies is displayed in quotes in
the spot market, and traded in currency pairs; like the US dollar and the
Canadian dollar (USD/CAD) or the US dollar and Japanese yen
(USD/JPY).
Also, although you are buying another country's currency, you are not
buying anything physical', and thus no physical exchange of money ever
takes place. This can be confusing, but think of it like buying shares of
a publicly traded company where everything is done electronically inside
your trading account. But unlike the stock market, the forex market
doesn't have a central exchange like the New York Stock Exchange for
instance. Instead the forex market is an interbank market, which means
it's all connected together in a network of banks and institutions.
You can also think of buying currencies as buying shares in a country,
you are betting on the success or failure of a particular country's
economy. You'll learn more about reading a currency quote and the
economics that move currency rates in the upcoming Introduction to forex
section.

P a g e | 51

CURRENCY QUOTES
Currencies are quoted in pairs, for example the USD/EUR is the U.S.
dollar/euro. Using this quotation, the value of a currency is determined by
its comparison to another currency. The first currency of a currency pair is
called the base currency, and the second currency is called the quote
currency. The currency pair shows how much of the quote currency is
needed to purchase one unit of the base currency.
For example, if the USD/EUR currency pair is quoted as being USD/EUR
= 0.8000 and you purchase the pair; this means that for every 0.80 euros
you sell, you purchase (receive) US$1. If you sell the currency pair, you
will receive 0.80 euros for every US$1 you sell. The inverse of the
currency quote is EUR/USD, and the corresponding price would be
EUR/USD = 1.25, meaning that US$1.25 would buy 1 euro.

MOST TRADED PAIRS


Although some retail dealers trade exotic (less popular) currencies such
as the Thai baht or the Czech koruna, the majority trade the seven most
traded currency pairs in the world. The four most popular, also known as
"the majors" are:
EUR/USD (euro/dollar) "euro"
USD/JPY (U.S. dollar/Japanese yen) "gopher"
GBP/USD (British pound/dollar) - "cable"
USD/CHF (U.S. dollar/Swiss franc) "swissie"

BROKERS
The forex (FX) market has many similarities to the stock market, but there are some
key differences.

Choosing a Broker
There are many forex brokers to choose from, just as in any other market.
Here are some things to look for:

Look for low spreads


The spread, calculated in pips, is the difference between the price at which a
currency can be purchased and the price at which it can be sold at any given
point in time. Forex brokers don't charge a commission, so this difference is
how they make money. In comparing brokers, you will find that the difference
in spreads in forex is as great as the difference in commissions in the stock
arena.

Get the right account type


Many brokers offer two or more types of accounts. The smallest account is
known as amini account and requires you to trade with a minimum of, say,
$250, offering a high amount of leverage (which you need in order to make
money with so little down). The standard account lets you trade at a variety of
different leverages, but it requires a minimum initial investment of around
$2,000.

Things to Avoid
Sniping or Hunting
Sniping and hunting - or prematurely buying or selling near preset points - are
shady acts committed by brokers to increase profits. Obviously, no broker
admits to committing these acts.

Strict Margin Rules


When you are trading with borrowed money, your broker has a say in how
much risk you take. As such, your broker can buy or sell at its discretion,
which can be a bad thing for you. Let's say you have a margin account, and
your position takes a dive before rebounding to all-time highs. Well, even if
you have enough cash to cover, some brokers will liquidate your position on a
margin call at that low. This action on their part can cost you dearly.

WHAT MOVES A CURRENCY?


Fundamental Analysis
If you think it's difficult to value one company, try valuing a whole
country! Fundamental analysis in the forex market is often very
complex, and it's usually used only to predict long-term trends;
however, some traders do trade short term strictly on news releases.
There are many different fundamental indicators of currency values
released at many different times.
Here are a few:
Non-farm payrolls
Purchasing Managers Index (PMI)
Consumer Price Index (CPI)
Retail sales
Durable Goods
These reports are not the only fundamental factors to watch. There
are also several meetings that provide quotes and commentary,
which can affect markets just as much as any report. These
meetings are often called to discuss interest rates, inflation and
other issues that affect currency valuations. Even changes in
wording when addressing certain issues - the Federal
Reserve chairman's comments on interest rates, for example - can
cause market volatility.
Simply reading the reports and examining the commentary can help
forex fundamental analysts gain a better understanding of long-term
market trends and allow short-term traders to profit from
extraordinary happenings. If you choose to follow a fundamental
strategy, be sure to keep a calendar that highlights important dates
so you know when these reports are released. Your broker may also
provide real-time access to such information

WHAT IS FOREX?
Forex stands for the foreign exchange market. This is also referred to as the FX, Spot FX or
Currency market. All of these names are just several ways of describing the very same market.
This market has been around since the 1970s when currencies started to fluctuate when
President Nixon took the U.S. off of the gold standard. Formerly, the U.S. currency was backed by
gold and now its just backed by the faith in the governments ability to honor and back the
currency.

MOST ACTIVE TRADING TIMES IN FOREX


When is the Forex Market Open?
Though the forex market is open 24 hours a day, there are specific times when the market is faster
moving, and its easier to make money. There are three main time zones for trading New York,
London and Tokyo. Two sessions are usually always overlapping. In terms of Eastern Standard
Time, New York is open from 9am to 5 pm, London is open from 3 am to 12 pm, and Tokyo is
open from 7pm to 4 am.
What is the Best Time to Trade?
The middle of the week is also usually the busiest time in terms of trading. Tuesday and
Wednesday shows much more movement and activity than the beginning or end of the week.
Friday is generally the slowest day, when things calm down as soon as the London session
closes. Sundays and Holidays are generally dead as well, and its unadvised to do lots of trading
then.

NFP-NON FARM PAYROLLS


Deciphering the Numbers

An increase in jobs suggests the economy is growing, which means that, all things
being equal, there will be more demand for dollars. Investors, for instance, who
were thinking of buying US assets will feel more comfortable doing so. The NFP will
usually show an increase in jobs.

INTRODUCTION OF
ONLINE TRADING
AND
OFFLINE TRADING

P a g e | 61

When you are opening an account for stock


trading the brokers ask whether you want to
open an online or offline account, many people
get confused because they do not know the
difference between the two. In order to remove
their doubts given below is the difference
between online and offline trading

P a g e | 62

TRADING
In online account the client himself or herself can trade in stock whereas in offline
account only broker can trade in stock according to instructions given by the client,
therefore an individual is dependent on brokers for execution of orders in offline trading
which is not the case with online trading.
CONVENIENCE
Online trading account is best suited for those individuals who can track the stock
market from their office or home, while for people who do not have internet facility at
office or their office blocks stock market websites than offline trading account is best
suited for them because they can give orders on phone and broker would place those
orders.
FRAUD
In online trading account there are no chances of fraud as it is you who has complete
control over your transactions while chances of fraud increases if you have offline
account because some brokers tend to trade at their discretion without taking
permission from client which may lead to losses to the client.
EXPERTISE AND KNOWLEDGE
If you do not have any knowledge about stock markets then an online account can be
risky because you may end up buying a stock on impulse without doing proper
research, whereas in offline account since a broker has been doing trading for years he
or she have more knowledge and therefore can give you proper guidance and hence
help you in taking the right decisions (however investor should be cautious as
sometimes brokers tend to give biased opinion).
