Investment Advisory

The best way to minimize risk is to diversify your investments across various investment products. If equities are your sole investments, it makes sense to diversify between different companies and sectors. In this way, loss made on some investments can be absorbed by gains made in others, keeping the overall return on investments positive.

What determines shares prices

MEDIA CENTRE | FAQs

Share prices are fundamentally determined by supply and demand. In stock market terminology, demand refers to bids and supply refers to offers. All other things remaining the same, the price of a share will go up if bids for the share exceed offers.

Similarly, a share's price is most likely to fall if offers exceed bids for it. Bids and offers normally change in response to changing expectations of the investing public.


Other factors behind demand and supply that affect share prices are interest rates, expectations of the market, the economy, performance of the listed company, major news from the listed company and investor psychology.
