What is share market 

The share market is also known as the stock market or equity market. Here you can buy or sell shares of any company. People buy some % shares of a company and become shareholders. Individual profit loss depends on the company’s share price. 

Mutual funds, bonds, stock, commodities, options, equity, trading and derivative 

Equity is a normal share of any company. Futures and options are advanced trading containing high profit and high risk. 

There are mainly 2 types of investment: intraday trading and long term investment. People lose lots of money intraday due to buying and selling on the same day. Equity cash is the buying and selling of a normal share. 

Nifty Bank nifty index trading is a combination of 50 shares. Commodity is trading for raw materials such as raw oil, bajra, gold, silver, and platinum.

Index trading

Trading where the top 50 shares are auto-selected and non-performing shares are kicked out after some time. It is a type of long-term investment where a profile is created and nifty 50 shares are selected as index shares.

Account opening 

Earlier account opening was a tough deal and people had to visit the brokerage office to open their trading account. Now you can sit and open the account from home through your laptop or mobile phone. Upstocks, zerodha and sharekhan are some of the best trading accounts in India.

Two types of trading in share market

Intraday and long term investment are two types of trading in the stock market.

Intraday trading 

Such trading in which shares are purchased and sold the same day between 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. In this trading type 10 to 15 or 20 time limit is provided by the brokerage firm. If you invested Rs 10,000 to buy Chambal Fertilizers Ltd shares of Rs 373 then you will get a 10 to 20 time limit. If you have a 10 time limit then Rs 10,000  will become Rs 10,000 x 10 = Rs 1 lakh now you can buy the shares of Rs 1 lakh. 

You can only lose the real money which is Rs 10,000, not 1 lakh but for trading, you can purchase the shares of Rs 1 lakh. This is the greed where lots of people get trapped. Intraday trading is risky trading in the stock market. 

Long term trading

In long-term trading, you can hold the shares for 2 days to multiple years. There is no boundation to sell the shares on the same day between 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You will not get any limit and have to invest the real money. It is one of the safest trades in the stock market.

In India, farming is tax-free and farmers don’t pay tax. You should find some agriculture shares and might get relief in tax. There are lots of agriculture shares you must invest in after good research.
