  • Thin Market : 

    A thin market is when there are comparatively few bids to buy or offers to sell, or both. Since only a few transactions take place in a thin market, the prices tend to be more volatile.

  • Hedge : 

    This is a strategy used to eliminate or reduce the risks of loss that could be brought about by adverse price movements of a security by making an investment in a related security. An example is if you owned a stock and then sold a futures contract stating that you will sell the stock at a set price thus avoiding market fluctuations. Investors use this strategy when they are unsure of the direction the market will take.

  • Blue Chip Stocks : 

    Are the stocks of leading, well established, capitalized and nationally known companies that have a proven record of earnings and pay a reasonable dividend.

    .
  • Bonds : 

    Bonds are also referred to as fixed income securities. They are promissory notes issued by government and corporations that entitle the investor to a specific interest at specific intervals over a specified length of time and to receive the principal upon maturity. Unlike shares, bonds do not carry with them any sense of ownership but guarantee interest even when the issuer does not register a profit.

  • Bonus Issue : 

    These are additional shares issued to existing shareholders in proportion to their holdings. They are issued free of cost.
