Stock Market Basics – National & International

Imagine you are going to a new place and what happens – you are completely lost on where to stay, what to eat! and then slowly you understand the places, the roads, the people. Same is with stock market, each country has their own rules and regulations and what market they trade in. Lets start with our first puzzle, what is stock market? Normally I hear from people that they have heard this buzzword and with Harshad Mehta’s series it even got more hyped. Lets start breaking this puzzle piece by piece.

Imagine you are a manufacturer of pencil. Now I come to you and say I want to buy a pencil.
