In order to be successful at the market, one needs to buy and sell shares according to the trends. A lot of factors determine the prices of the stocks. One of them is interest rates. If the interest rates at what money is available for taking loans are low, people can borrow more and invest in the market. Due to this, if the investment in a stock goes up, the prices of the said stock would also go up leading to increased market capitalisation. This is due to an increase in demand for the stocks. Demand and Price are directly proportional. Increase trend is known as the bullish trend in the market.

Similarly when the opposite happens, that is, borrowing interest rates rise, people tend to withdraw from the market leading to a fall in the price of the shares of stocks. This is a good time to buy stocks as the price is comparatively low if an investor has money at the time. This is often referred to as the bearish market trend. Again when the price rises over a time period, the person can sell off the shares in order to gain a profit.

Index Funds can be defined as a list of stocks or a stocks portfolio that performs the same as the financial market index. Investing in index funds like S&P Global 500 slowly and steadily every month can result in a very big accumulated value in the long run. It is surely a more risky way of earning profit and a person who needs money in the short term or has a light heart should be away from the market as the investment is subject to market risks. But it is also beneficial for those who take the plunge.

Fun Fact: The number of shares remains the same in the market but its price changes according to the D&S. The number can only change if there is a rights issue or a further stake issue in the market by the Company’s Promoters.
