Stock Market Funda

Posted on: October 2, 2008

As metioned by one of my friend,here is a Story that kick start you in the world of Stock Market.

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for Rs10/-.

The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought hundreds at Rs10/- and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at Rs20/-. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply
diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to Rs25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was  an effort to even see a monkey let alone catch it. 

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at Rs50! 

However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers,“Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at Rs35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell it to him for Rs50.” 

The villagers squeezed up all their savings to buy the monkeys from the assistant. 

But then after a few days, they never saw the man nor his assistant, but only monkeys everywhere!!


Welcome to the world of Stock Market.
