FINANCIAL MARKETS- CAPITAL VS MONEY MARKETS.



Hi Friends,   Capital Markets:    Capital markets are perhaps the most widely followed markets.  Both the stock and bond markets are closely followed and their daily movements are analyzed as proxies for the general economic condition of the world markets.  As a result, the institutions operating in capital markets – stock exchanges, commercial banks and all types of corporations, including nonbank institutions such as insurance companies and mortgage banks – are carefully scrutinized.  The institutions operating in the capital markets access them to raise capital for long term purposes, such as for a merger or acquisition, to expand a line of business or enter into a new business, or for other capital projects.  Entities that are raising money for these long-term purposes come to one more capital markets.  In the bond market, companies may issue debt in the form of corporate bonds, while both local and federal governments may issue debt in the form of government bonds.  Similarly, companies may decide to raise money by issuing equity on the stock market.  Government entities are typically not publicly held and, therefore, do not usually issue equity.  Companies and government entities that issue equity or debt are considered the sellers in these markets.


The buyers, or the investors, buy the stocks or bonds of the sellers and trade them.  If the seller, or issuer, is placing   the securities on the market for the first time, then the market is known as the Primary Market.  Conversely, if the securities have already been issued and are now being traded among buyers, this is done on the Secondary Market.  Sellers make money off the sale in the primary market, not in the secondary market, although they do have a stake in the outcome (pricing) of their securities in the secondary market.  The buyers of securities in the capital market tend to use funds that are targeted for longer term investment.  Capital markets are risky markets and are not usually used to invest short term funds.  Many investors access the capital markets to save for retirement or education, as long as the investors have long term horizons, which usually means they are young and are risk takers.   (To be continued tomorrow.)
Thanking you,                                                                    see you later.

A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones.   (Proverb  17;22)


When we have joy in our hearts, it can’t help but spill out to those who are around us.  We bring the medicine of cheerfulness not because every situation is great, but because God is greater than any situation.  Our joy is renewed as we stay in the presence of God through prayer and Bible study.  The key to having a joyful heart is to keep our minds stayed on God and His grace over our lives.


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

STOCK MARKET- SHARE TIPS.


Hi Friends,   The two strongest emotions operating in the stock market are greed and fear.  Greed is the dominant emotion in a booming market.  It makes individuals grasp and grab when they buy shares.  There is often a mad scramble to get on to the stock market bandwagon during a boom.  Share prices skyrocket to levels which lose all touch with reality.  On the other hand, fear takes over in a falling market.  Share prices nosedive and panic selling starts as investors and speculators scramble to get out before the prices fall further.  It is greed and fear that lead to excesses of over valuation and under valuation of shares in the stock market.  The rational investor takes advantage of these market over-reactions to make profits.  He buys when the shares are underpriced and sells when they are overpriced.  The more irrational the market, the greater the opportunities for the cool, objective, rational investor.  In short, an irrational market is a rational investor’s dream come true.    Conversely, a rational, orderly and logical stock market is a rational investor’s nightmare.  In such a market, opportunities to make profits would dry up.  Price and value would always match.  There would be no gross excess in the overvaluation and undervaluation of share prices.  In short, there would be no scope for making big profits.

Good Luck.                                                                  See You Later.
