Trading has evolved tremendously over two decades. In today’s time, the majority of people trade in the Stock Market. With the help of a Trading Account, you can carry out trades in the Stock Market. You can trade in commodities in different exchanges like Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd (MCX), National Commodity and Derivative Exchange (NCDEX), Indian Commodity Exchange (ICEX), National Stock Exchange (NSE), and Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). You can buy and sell stocks in the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
Before the age of the Internet, investors and traders used to trade verbally in the Stock Market. It took almost 14 days to settle trades after placing orders for buying or selling. India saw a revolution in investing in 1996 with the inception of the Demat account system on NSE. It reduced hectic for investors with a computer and access to the Internet as they didn’t have to physically present at the respective exchange.
At the present time, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) regulates the security and commodity market in India. They made it mandatory for every investor and trader to open a Demat account to invest in stocks and other securities. A Demat account holds your Securities in an electronic form. It converts all your Physical share certificates into dematerialized form. Like a Demat account, it is also important to open a Trading account to trade online in the Stock Market.
