Digital transactions have increased in the Share market.
The country’s capital market is in a state of lockdown due to coronavirus infection. Shares are being traded. However, all this is going on digitally. Stock exchange officials as well as investors and brokerage authorities are taking part in the digital process.
Investors are getting the most benefit from the digital process. They are no longer coming to the brokerage house but are doing transactions digitally through mobile apps and mobile phones (calls) as well as social media. Broker houses are accepting investors’ orders over the phone as well as through WhatsApp and Messenger groups. They are transacting very easily without any hassle. It saved time on the one hand, on the other hand with the movement pass or double rent to go to the brokerage to do the transaction.
Professor Abu Ahmed, a capital market analyst, said the easier the transaction, the more investors will be attracted to the market. He said this figure should also be in the normal market. It is very important to make arrangements so that investors can make their own transactions without wasting time going to the broker house. Then the power of brokers will also decrease. Market manipulation will also come down.
According to the Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE), the country’s main capital market, the number of investors selling shares at home through DSE’s mobile apps is increasing day by day. The number of investors on the DSE on April 1 was 72,300. In the last ten working days, this number has increased by one thousand and stood at 63 thousand. Of these, about 45,000 investors are now actively trading. And this has happened only because of the Corona period. The people concerned think that the transaction in mobile apps will increase day by day.
Not only in mobile apps, the trend of making transactions by calling on mobile phones has also increased during the government restrictions to prevent corona infection. It was seen that last Thursday (April 15) there was a transaction of Tk 558 crore in the capital market, which is Tk 45 crore more than the previous working day. Earlier on Tuesday (April 13) the transaction was 511 crore.
In this regard, DSE Director Shakil Rizvi said, “One of the trends of our country’s investors is that when the transaction starts at 10 am, they will enter the broker house.” Will be out again when the transaction is over. Investors in the developed world do not do this, they see the state of the capital market in the gaps of their profession. He trades digitally from his workplace.
Shibli Rubaiyat-ul-Islam, chairman of the capital securities regulator Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC), has urged investors not to come to the brokerage house at this time of coronavirus, but to trade digital shares.
Addressing investors, he said, do not come to the brokerage house and transact on mobile phones. That way, you and your neighbors will be protected from corona.
