Understanding how Share Market Live works

The stock index of market functions as an indicator of the general economic scenario of a country. If the stock market indices are growing, it indicates that the overall general economy of the country is stable, prospering and that the investors have faith in the growth story of the economy. If, however, there is a plunge in the stock market index over a period of time, it indicates that the economy of the country is in troubled waters. This also indicates what the corporates in that country would be facing pertaining to their growth in the markets. While the indices take a call depending upon performances of each individual stock there are specific timelines for trading and the movements of the market termed as “Share Market Live” The trading hours of India’s largest exchange (in terms of market capitalization) i.e BSE is between 9:15 and 3:30pm. So the very act of buying and selling of shares which takes place over computer, phone calls or manual interpretations during this time by any individual is called as Share Market Live!

The article takes you through some crucial elements during the regular Share Market live trading of the day.

India has two indices which are Sensex and Nifty. Sensex was introduced by the Bombay Stock Exchange and Nifty is a major stock index in India introduced by the National Stock Exchange. The Sensex, also called the BSE 30, is a stock market index of 30 well-established and financially sound companies listed on Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The Nifty, similarly, is an indicator of the 50 top major companies on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).

The Sensex and Nifty are both major contributors of Share market live movements and hottest happenings during the trading time of the day. If the Sensex or Nifty goes up, it means that most of the stocks in India went up during the given period. If they come down it means stock prices of most of the major stocks on the BSE have plunged down.

Index Futures are one of the crucial trading formats in share market live scenarios of the day’s trading period. A future contract is a type of financial contract where two parties agree to transact a set of financial instruments for future delivery at a particular price. On the NSE, where most futures volume is traded, a trader can trade Index Futures, Stock Futures, and Currency Futures. The most common futures contract traded in India are nifty futures.

We can say it’s a contract with a specified date and price for delivery where there is no cash exchanged between the parties for initiating the contract. Futures trading, therefore, are the buying and selling of these sort of contracts.

Thus, nifty futures are also termed as “index futures” where the underlying is the S&P CNX Nifty index. Nifty Futures contracts have three expiration dates: the near month, mid month, and far month. The expiration day for each contract is the last Thursday of every month. Nifty Futures emerge out as the most traded contracts in India.
