NSE pre-open call auction session

Both the premier exchanges BSE and NSE are to kick off pre-open call auction section, soon. The pre-open call auction session will be for 15 minutes between 9 am and 9.15 am. The session would work as follows: The first eight minutes will be reserved for order entry, modification and cancellation, the next four minutes will be kept for order matching and trade confirmation. The remaining three minutes will be the buffer period to facilitate the transition from pre-open session to the normal market.

Initially, the call auction session will be applicable for Nifty-50 scrips and Sensex-30 scrips. More scrips will be gradually added to the list. Normal trading in other stocks will begin as at 9.15 am.

What is this pre-open session all about?

Indian markets have seen huge volatility, particularly during open trades. In the past few years, indices have hit the down circuit quite a few times and up circuit once. Call auction at pre-open will help arrive at a proper price, removing volatility and freak trades.

How does this order matching works?

In a Call Auction market, orders are gathered for execution at predetermined times when the market is called. At the call, all buy orders are aggregated into a downward sloping demand function and all sell orders are aggregated in an upward sloping supply function.The logic of order batching which is core to the Call Auction mechanism is well explained here.

Call Auctions across the world have been applied to various sessions during the trading day at the Open, Close and during trading halts. So, hopefully no more freak trades of abnormal highs and lows.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.




You could just try the same here at Moneycontrol Terminal
