What is the stock exchange? In simple words, stock exchange refers to an organized market in which securities are bought and sold. If we go into the detailed description, the prices at which these securities are bought and sold are regulated by the forces of demand and supply.
The stock exchange basically is an investment intermediary for corporations, governments, municipalities, and other incorporated bodies where they can raise capital by channeling savings of the investors in various productive ventures. The other purpose served by the stock exchange is that the investors can sell their securities to other investors for cash.
These exchanges impose various rules and regulations on the firms and brokers that are involved with them. If a particular company is traded on an exchange, it is referred to as “listed”. A stock exchange facilitates economic development as well as the industrial development of the country.
