View with images and charts Report On Financial Market 1. Financial market: Financial market which consist of a number of institution and market serving business firms, individuals and government. The Purpose of Financial market: Financial assets exist in an economy because the saving of various individuals, corporations and governments during a period of time differ from their investment in real assets. By real assets we mean such things as houses, buildings, equipment, inventories and durable goods. A financial asset is created only when the investment of an economic unit in real assets exceeds its saving, and it finances this excess by borrowing and issuing stock. Of course, another economic unit must be willing to lend. In the economy as a whole saving surplus units (those whose savings exceed their investment in real assets) provide funds to saving deficit units (those whose investment in real assets exceed their saving). This exchange of funds is evidenced by investment instruments or securities, representing financial assets to the holders and financial liabilities to the issuers. The purpose of financial markets in an economy is to allocate savings efficiently to ultimate users. If those economic units that saved were the same as those that engaged in capital formation, an economy could prosper without financial markets. Classification of Financial Market: •

Money Market:

The market for short term (less than one year original maturity) government and corporate debt securities. It also includes government securities originally issued with maturities of more than one year but that now have a year or less until maturity. •

It also includes government securities originally issued with maturities of more than one year but that now have a year or less until maturity. For example: Insurance company, 3. Capital Market: The market for relatively long-term (greater than one year original maturity) financial instruments (e.g. bonds and stocks). The long term market is called capital markets and consists of securities having maturities greater than one year. The most common corporate securities in this category are bonds, common stock, preferred stock and convertible securities. These securities are found on the firms balance sheet under the designation long terms liabilities and equities taken together. These long term securities comprise the firm’s capital structure.

DSE the Clearing and Settlement process: The Clearing and Settlement module provides the management of trade from the point of entry into the Settlement Pool trade database until it has been delivered, settled and removed from the Settlement Pool. It consists of three major business processes. Clearing: participant trade reporting, affirmation, billing and assigning settlement instructions. Settlement: the process of overseeing that delivery of all instruments to the buyer and payment of all moneys to the seller has occurred before removing the trade from the settlement pool. Regulation 4 of the Settlement of Stock Exchange Transactions Regulation 1998 has been given effect time to time. A new directive was made by SEC dated on 18th March 2003 "Adjusted due

PREAMBLE Globally the developments in information & communication technologies (ICT) have created a new instance in the securities market operations. Stock Exchanges all over the world have realized the potentiality of ICT and inclined to the electronic trading systems. It was understood by DSE that technology would ensure transparency, timeliness and satisfaction in customer service. Considering those DSE introduced Automated Trading System on 10th August 1998.In other words, the trading floor moved right into the member's office premises where an investor started to place buy/sell orders. Considering market growth the Automated Trading System was upgraded two times. The recently Upgraded Trading System, started from 30th March, 2008 is capable to handle 1,00,000 trades per day as well as 3000 Trading work stations. HARDWARE DSE Automated Trading System (HP NonStop S7804) is running on fault tolerant, high available, scalable and maintainable Mainframe Server. Previously DSE established the TANDEM NonStop K204 System on September 1998 and on August 2005 it was replaced with highly scaleable HP NonStop S7802. DSE upgraded the Trading System once again on 30th March 2008. The existing HP NonStop S7804 Server is highly fault tolerant to the fact that no single component failure will halt the system. Its constituent parts are hot swappable, and upward compatible; components can be added or removed while the system is running and any compatible new upgraded will work with the system. All disk drives are mirrored so, if any of the disk crashes the exact copy of the data is available at online. Moreover the connecting path for every disk whether it is primary or mirror is also redundant. In every case, minimum two peripheral devices exist. All the components are

working active - active load balancing procedure . To ensure better power quality we have ensured high end UPS's with long durable backup capability, two instant backup generations and other electrical devices. NETWORK (LAN / WAN) All the Member (230 members) Server Applications (MSA) are connected with NonStop HP SSeries Server through either DSE LAN or WAN connectivity. Each member has one or more Trader Work Station (TWS). The TWSs are being connected to the Trading Server via respective MSA through LAN and WAN connection. DSE outsourced MetroNet Ltd., DNS Ltd. , X-Net Ltd., Dhaka Com Ltd., Ranks ITT, Link-3, Royal Green Online Ltd. etc Network Service Providers (NSP under WAN Expansion Project. Now a days members can establish a main office or branch offices to their remote location and can trade smoothly by using different media ADSL, Optical fiber and Radio Link from Dhaka and other important cities such as Gazipur, Narayanganj, Comilla, Hobiganj, Chittagong, Sylhet, Khulna, Barisal, Rajshahi, Bogra at the same time. Two DSE branch offices located at Chittagong and Sylhet is connected via BTTB's DDN link. We also used another connectivity for redundancy for the DDN link. We have a plan to reach the DSE branches in same way. DSE LAN/WAN Expansion With in Dhaka City:

DSE LAN/WAN Expansion Outside of Dhaka


In case of trade interruption due to serious hardware, software, network failure or telecommunication disruption at the Brokerage houses, there is a provision to allow traders to trade at DSE Contingency Trading floor. SYSTEM SOFTWARE The system software is HP Proprietary NonStop KERNEL and includes the database as part of the operating system thereby eliminating the layer typically found in most Database Management Systems (DBMS). The Database functionalities are handled by NONSTOP SQL, which is simply a different operational session for the operating system. The proprietary nature of the system software arguably enhances system security. Operating system is HP's proprietary NonStop Kernel DBMS handled by NonStop SQL. The system software treats all its hardware resources as objects and is thus entirely message driven. This then allows application software to be deployed using client / server architecture providing shared data processing between the central server and the user workstation. The central trading system resides in the Stock Exchange premises, which is running 24 hrs in a day & 365 days in a year. APPLICATION SOFTWARE The application, which runs in DSE for trading, is called TESA (The Electronic Securities Architecture). TESA has two parts: MSA (Member's Server Application) & TWS (Trader workstation). MSA is the "Gateway" between the traders and the Stock Exchange, which manages all the transactions and database operations between the traders and the Trading Engine. TWS is the Front-end Application closer to investors, where they can submit Buy/Sell orders for their desired securities. TESA ARCHITECTURE TESA software is built for the global securities markets. It uses fault tolerant computers, intelligent workstations and client / server design techniques. This provides co-operative processing, high message integrity, continuous operation and fully automatic recovery. This cooperative mechanism enables very high speed processing which is essential for today's electronic markets. TESA's Application Programmatic Interface (API) is the gateway to the TESA system

from the outside world. All external devices connect through the API. The API provides the translation between external devices and internal processes. This means that a new process does not need to be written to support each new device, only the API needs to be modified. SOLUTION BENEFITS The TESA application suite derives significant advantages from being implemented on the HP NonStop platform. The HP NonStop customers have benefited from these advantages. Fault Tolerance: One of the most important automation requirements for any stock exchange system is continuous system availability. With most systems Fault Tolerance is created at the application level. Fault Tolerance is a fundamental design feature of the HP NonStop architecture. Data Integrity: Data integrity is an integral feature of HP architecture. TESA employs standard HP tools to achieve exceptional data integrity. Scalability: The ability of an exchange to accommodate extraordinary increases in transaction volumes without loss of its Capital investment in automation is very important. The HP NonStop Server is massively scalable due to Parallel processors. TESA FUNCTIONAL MODEL An overview of the TESA Functional Model Client / Server: TESA's Client / Server architecture enables an efficient allocation of computing resources and provides easily modified user-friendly interfaces. TESA workstations operate under Windows 95 and can function either as servers on a broker's network or as workstation. These

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was established on 8th June, 1993 under the Securities and Exchange Commission Act, 1993. The Chairman and Members of the Commission are appointed by the government and have overall responsibility to administer securities legislation. The Commission, at present has three full time members, excluding the Chairman. The Commission is a statutory body and attached to the Ministry of Finance. Members perform the following functions: •

Serve as the members of the Commission and supervise its management.

Provide policy direction to industry and staff and promulgate legally binding rules.

Act as an administrative tribunal for decisions on the capital market.

4. Primary Market: •

Primary Market:

A market where new securities are bought and sold for the first time (a “new issues” market). •

Secondary Market:

Purchases and sales of existing stocks and bonds occur in the secondary market. Transactions in this market do not provide firms with additional funds to buy new plants or buy new equipment. However, the presence of a viable secondary market increases the liquidity of securities already outstanding. Without this liquidity, firms issuing new securities would have to pay higher returns because investors would have trouble finding a resale market for

their stocks and bonds. Thus the ongoing trading of existing securities is crucial to the efficient operation of the primary or new issues market for long term securities. The secondary market for long term securities consists of the organized exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and the New York Bond Exchange. 5. Investment Banker: A financial institution that underwrites (purchase at a fixes price on a fixed date) new securities for resale. The investment banker acts as a middleman in bringing together parties who need funds with those who savings. The principal function of the investment banker is to buy the new securities from the issuing company (at whole sale) and then resale them to investors (at retail). For this service, investment bankers receive the difference or underwriting spread, between the price they pay for the security and the price at which the security is sold to the public. Because most companies make only occasional trips to the capital market, they are not specialists in the distribution of securities. There are three primary means by which companies offer securities to the general public, a traditional (or firm commitment) underwriting, a best efforts offering and a shelf registration Functions of investment Bankers and Distributed below: •

Public 6. Privileged Subscription: The sale of new securities in which exiting shareholders are given a performance in purchasing these securities up to the promotion of common shares that they already own; also known as a rights offering. 7. Preemptive Rights: Definition: The right of current shareholders to maintain their fractional ownership of a company by buying a proportional number of shares of any future issues of common stock. Most states consider preemptive rights valid only if made explicit in a corporations charter also called subscription privilege or subscription rights. Terms of Offering: When a company offers its securities for sale by privilege subscription, its mail its shareholders one right for each share of common stock that they hold. With a common stock offering, the rights give shareholders the option to purchase additional shares according to the terms of the offering. The terms specify the number of rights required to subscribe for an additional share of stock, the subscription price per share and the expiration date of the offering. The holder of rights has three choices: •

Exercise the rights and subscribe the additional shares

Sell the rights because they are transferable

Do nothing and let the rights expire.

Value of Rights: The market value of a right is a function of the present market price of the stock, the subscription price and the number of rights required to purchase an additional share of stock. The theoretical market value of one right after the offering in announced but while the stock is still “rights-on” is Ro = Po-[( Ro)(N)+ S] Where, Ro = market value of one right when the stock is selling “rights-on” Po= market price of a share of stock selling “rights-on” S= subscription price per share N = number of rights required to purchase one share of stock Theoretical value of one share of stock when it goes “ex-rights” Px is ( Ro)(N)+ S Px = N+ 1 Theoretical value of a right when the stock sells “ex-rights” Rx is Px - S Rx = N 8. Private Placement: Definition The sale of an entire issue of unregistered securities (usually bonds) directly to one purchaser or a group of purchaser (usually financial intermediaries). Financial Intermediaries is the financial institutions that accept money from savers and use those funds to make loans and other financial investments in their own name. They include commercial banks, saving institutions, insurance companies, pension funds, finance companies and mutual funds. Features

One of the more frequently mentioned advantage of a private placement is the speed with which the private deal is transacted. A public issue must be registered with the SEC, red herring and final prospectuses prepared and printed and extensive negotiations undertaken. All this requires times. In addition, public issues, always involve risks with respect to timing. Private placement on the other hand, are not subject to SEC registration requirements, because it is felt that persons or institutions with enough capital to buy an entire security issue should be able to acquire on their own kind of information that registration would disclose. The private placement of debt is negotiated; the exact timing in the market is not a critical problem. The fact that there is most often only a single investor or small group of investors is attractive if it later becomes necessary to change any of the terms of the issues. It is much easier to deal with one investor than with a large number of securities holders. Advantage of a privately placed debt issue is that the actual borrowing does not necessarily have to take place all at once. The company can enter an arrangement whereby it can borrow up to a fixed amount over a period of time. For this credit arrangement, the will pay a commitment fee. This type of arrangement gives the company flexibility, allowing too borrow only when it needs the funds. Developments in the Market: Starting in the 1980s private placement gained renewed importance as lenders sought to protect themselves from some of the adverse effects caused by prevalent corporate restructurings. Advantage of institutional investors is that the SEC now permits them to resell securities generated in the private placement market to other large institutions. Thus US companies, as well as foreign companies can issue bonds and stocks in the market without having to go through public market registration procedures. Then qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) can sell the securities to other institutional buyers without waiting out any holding period and without subjecting the issuer or security holder to additional regulation by the SEC. As a result the market becomes broader and more liquid. 9. Initial Public Offering (IPO): Initial public offering (IPO), also referred to simply as a “public offering�, is when a company issues common stock or shares to the public for the first time. They are often issued by smaller, younger companies seeking capital to expand, but can also be done by large privately-owned companies looking to become publicly traded.

In an IPO, the issuer may obtain the assistance of an underwriting firm, which helps it determine what type of security to issue (common or preferred), best offering price and time to bring it to market. IPOs can be a risky investment. For the individual investor, it is tr4ough to predict what the stock or shares will do on its initial day of trading and in the near future since there is often little historical data with which to analyze the company. Also, most IPOs are of companies going through a transitory growth period, and they are therefore subject to additional uncertainty regarding their future value. Procedure IPOs generally involve one or more investment banks as “underwriters”. The company offering its shares, called the “issuer” enters a contract with a lead underwriter” to sell its shares to the public. The underwriter then approaches investors with offers to sell these shares. The sale (that is, the allocation and pri9cing) of shares in an IPO may take several forms. Common methods include: •

Dutch auction

Firm commitment

Best efforts

Bought deal

Self Distribution of Stock

A large IPO is usually underwritten by a “syndicate” of investment banks led by one or more major investment banks (lead underwriter). Upon selling the shares, the underwriters keep a commission based on a percentage of the value of the shares sold. Usually, the lead underwriters, i.e. the underwriters selling the largest proportions of the IPO, take the highest commission- up to 8% in some cases. Issue price A company that is planning an IPO appoints lead managers to help it decide on an appropriate price at which the shares should be issued. There are two ways in which the price of and IPO can be determined: either the company, with the help of its lead managers, fixes a price of the price is arrived at through the process of book building. Law, Policy, and Advocacy

Promoting legislation to reform U.S. patent and trademark laws.

Filing amicus briefs with U.S. courts.

Ending permanently the government practice of diverting user fee collections from the USPTO.
