  • Oversubscribed : 

    This is a situation in which the demand for shares in an initial public offering exceeds the number of shares issued. In a bull market, good public issues tend to get oversubscribed.  

    .
  • Naked Position : 

    This is holding securities that are not hedged against market risk. Both the potential risk and reward is high. It is rarely a concern for smaller investors but is usually a major concern for large investors.

    .
  • Index : 

    A stock market index is a statistical measure of the state of the stock market, based on the performance of a number of representative stocks. Each index (from different stock markets across the world) has its own calculation methodology and is usually expressed in terms of a change from a base value. Thus, a percentage change of the index is more important than its numeric value. The index is usually considered to be reasonably representative of the performance of the stock market as a whole.

    .
  • Capital Gain : 

    A capital gain is an increase in the value of a capital asset. Stocks and other investments such as property are classified as capital assets. The gain is only realized after the asset is sold.

    .
  • Know Your Customer (KYC) : 

    This is the requirement that a stockbroker (or agent) should find out about a client’s financial needs, risk tolerance and investment knowledge before making recommendations. This knowledge enables the stockbroker to establish the most suitable securities for the investor.
