Share market is a place, where you can buy and sell shares of different companies listed on different stock exchanges. Since you are a beginner in stock markets and are really interested in investing in stocks/shares, it is better to enter the stock market through mutual funds. Mutual fund is an investment vehicle in which funds are collected from different investors and are invested in stocks, debentures, bonds, Government securities, etc. depending on the type of the mutual fund. It is managed by a fund manager. There are many types of mutual funds that are available in the market today like equity, debt, hybrid mutual funds, etc. Equity mutual funds are the ones, which invest all its money in stocks. You can invest your money in mutual funds either in lump some amount or invest regularly through Systematic Investment Plan(SIP).

If you don't want to enter the stock market through mutual funds and want to purchase shares directly, then you have to open a demat/trading account with any of the brokerage firms that are available in your locality. You should also have a savings bank account, which will be linked to your demat/trading account. Go for the brokerage firm, which charges less brokerage for buying and selling of stocks. Ventura Capital and RKSV Securities charge less brokerage. But see whether they are offering their services at your locality. To begin with the stock markets, always try to buy index stocks in NSE and BSE. Index stocks are the top 50 stocks in NIFTY and top 30 stocks in SENSEX.

It is very difficult to predict the behavior of the stock markets. So, you should be very cautious while investing or trading in stock markets. Don't take any loan to invest in stock markets. You should take some precautions before trading or investing in stock markets.
