Investor Education

  • Investment Company : 

    This is a company that invests the pooled funds of a large number of retail investors to buy and sell shares. It gives individual investors access to a wider range of securities than the investors themselves would have been able to access. An open-ended investment company is one which keeps accepting new investors and redeems the funds of those who wish to opt out, whereas a close-ended investment company has a fixed number of investors.

    .
  • Futures Contract : 

    A futures contract is a contractual agreement to buy or sell a specified quantity of a commodity, currency or shares at a specified price on a fixed date in the future. It is also referred to as forward dealing or forward trading.

    .
  • High Close : 

    This is a tactic used by stock manipulators. During the final minutes of trading, they execute several small orders of a given stock at high prices to give the impression that the stock is doing better than it actually is because the closing price is the most widely quoted and will attract potential investors to buy the stock.

    .
  • Penny Stock : 

    These are shares with a very low price and market capitalization usually not traded in the main exchanges. They are generally considered to be highly speculative and high risk.

    .
  • Undervalued Shares : 

    These are shares that are trading below their true value. There are many reasons for this; the industry could be out of favour, or the company is not well known, or it has not yet caught the fancy of investors.
