How can I open a trading account?

Step 1: Chose Depository Participant (DP)
Choosing a depository participant (DP) is the first step to open a Demat account. In India, banks, stockbrokers, and online investment platforms offer DP services. While choosing a DP, it is advisable to go for a service provider whose services and features match your needs and requirements.

Step 2: Submit Demat Account Opening Form
Visit your DP’s website and fill out the online Demat account opening form for opening a Demat account. Many depository participants like IIFL offer the ability to open both trading and Demat accounts.

Step 3: Fulfill the KYC (Know Your CustomerA) Norms
Once you have duly filled the Demat account opening form, you will be asked to fulfil the Know Your Customer (KYC) norms. This would require you to submit scanned copies of KYC documents such as your identity proof, address proof, bank account statement, and income proof. It is a good idea to have all of the relevant documents by your side before applying, since this can help you get through the process faster.

Step 4: Go through the Verification Process
After submitting your Demat account opening form along with the requisite proofs, you will be asked by your DP to go through a process called ‘In Person Verification’ (IPV). This exercise is mandatory, and it’s carried out with the intention of verifying the authenticity of your documents. Depending on your DP, you may be asked to be present in person at any one of your service provider’s offices. However, many depository participants now offer IPV services online through the use of a webcam or a smartphone.

Step 5: Sign the Agreement Copies
Upon completion of IPV, you will be asked to sign an agreement with your DP. This agreement generally contains all the duties and rights of the depository participant and the investor.

Step 6: Get Your BO ID Number
Once this is done, your DP shall proceed to process your Demat account opening form. Upon approval of your application, you will be provided with a unique Beneficial Owner Identification Number (BO ID). This BO ID is used to access your Demat account.

Can I start share trading online once my account is activated?

Yes, you can start trading online as soon as your account is activated provided you have the funds in your bank account or stocks with your depository participant. Once your trading account has been opened, you can trade as well as transfer your holdings, if any, to your demat account.

It is perfectly legitimate to have multiple Demat accounts just as you can have multiple trading accounts. The only condition is that you cannot have multiple trading accounts or multiple Demat accounts with the same broker or the same DP.

What is meant by equity market?

An equity market is a market in which shares of companies are issued and traded, either through exchanges or over-the-counter markets. Also known as the stock market, it is one of the most vital areas of a market economy. It gives companies access to capital to grow their business, and investors a piece of ownership in a company with the potential to realize gains in their investment based on the company's future performance.

Who is a stock trader?

A stock trader or equity trader or share trader is a person or company involved in trading equity securities. Stock traders may be an agent, hedger, arbitrageur, speculator, or stockbroker. Such equity trading in large publicly traded companies may be through a stock exchange. Stock shares in smaller public companies may be bought and sold in over-the-counter (OTC) markets.
Stock traders can trade on their own account, called proprietary trading, or through an agent authorized to buy and sell on the owner’s behalf. Trading through an agent is usually through a stockbroker. Agents are paid a commission for performing the trade.
Major stock exchanges have market makers who help limit price variation (volatility) by buying and selling a particular company's shares on their own behalf and also on behalf of other clients.

What is a stock exchange?

A stock exchange, securities exchange, or bourse is an exchange where stockbrokers and traders can buy and sell securities, such as shares of stock, bonds, and other financial instruments. Stock exchanges may also provide facilities for the issue and redemption of such securities and instruments and capital events including the payment of income and dividends.[citation needed] Securities traded on a stock exchange include stock issued by listed companies, unit trusts, derivatives, pooled investment products and bonds. Stock exchanges often function as "continuous auction" markets with buyers and sellers consummating transactions via open outcry at a central location such as the floor of the exchange or by using an electronic trading platform.

To be able to trade a security on a certain stock exchange, the security must be listed there. Usually, there is a central location at least for record keeping, but trade is increasingly less linked to a physical place, as modern markets use electronic communication networks, which give them advantages of increased speed and reduced cost of transactions. Trade on an exchange is restricted to brokers who are members of the exchange. In recent years, various other trading venues, such as electronic communication networks, alternative trading systems and "dark pools" have taken much of the trading activity away from traditional stock exchanges.

Initial public offerings of stocks and bonds to investors is done in the primary market and subsequent trading is done in the secondary market. A stock exchange is often the most important component of a stock market. Supply and demand in stock markets are driven by various factors that, as in all free markets, affect the price of stocks.

There is usually no obligation for stock to be issued through the stock exchange itself, nor must stock be subsequently traded on an exchange. Such trading may be off exchange or over-the-counter. This is the usual way that derivatives and bonds are traded. Increasingly, stock exchanges are part of a global securities market. Stock exchanges also serve an economic function in providing liquidity to shareholders in providing an efficient means of disposing of shares.
