Everybody knows that investment in the Indian stock market is one of the most popular ways to strike wealth through the construction of a large body over the years. But the myth – which is too complicated – is what prevents people from investing in stocks. Investors beginning with the equity market are afraid because they assume it is risky, timely, and complex.

Don't worry, this guide teaches you how to invest in the Indian stock market. We provide step-by-step guidance to make the process easier. 

An Indian stock market guide for starters is incomplete without first thinking about what a stock market is. A market of shares is a place of public issuing and trading of shares. A share is a paper confirming your ownership of a company and can be sold to other parties in this document. Buyers and sellers meet on a share market for this document exchange. A formal marketplace for investors to buy and sell their stocks has been created to facilitate public exchanges.

Stock Market Index Basics:-

We all know that when an outside force acts on a body, it moves. Similarly, the domestic market act from all directions in domestic and external economic factors (forces), which lead to market trends. These trends are up or down in nature. And there's a metric called the stock market index to help you distinguish the two trends.

The stock market index combines several stocks to create an overall value that is useful for investors to measure the performance of a market or industry. There are two major market indexes in the Indian context used for market evaluation: SENSEX and NIFTY.

What is Sensex?

Sensex is the combined stock value of 30 specific Bombay stock exchanges (BSE) listed companies in simple words. This list of 30 may be revised over time by BSE. So, it's also a matter of economy if Sensex fluctuates. For example, when Sensex rises people get intrigued about purchasing inventories because they believe that the economy will grow. However, people tend to stop investing in the economy if Sensex goes down.

What is Nifty?

NIFTY is an index of 50 shares listed on the National Stock Exchange of India. It includes 50 stocks from various Indian economic sectors. This is also usually called NIFTY 50. If you buy the Nifty future, it means that you have invested in 50 shares of the Nifty Index. It means that the investments are automatically diversified into 50 stocks.

The Nifty Index comprises 50 enterprises that are regarded as movers and shakers of the nation's economy. Each of the 50 firms contributes a certain weighting to the Nifty Index and its decline and increase indicate our economy's condition.
