About Bombay Stock Exchange

Founded in 1875, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) is steeped in a rich tapestry of history and has risen to prominence as a pivotal force within the Indian financial sector. Acting as a vital line for trading and investment activities, the BSE plays an instrumental role in propelling the growth trajectory of the Indian economy

Home to over 5,000 publicly listed companies, the BSE presents an impressive landscape of diverse investment avenues for market participants. This vast array of listed entities not only underscores the magnitude of the BSE but also provides a testament to the depth and breadth of India's corporate sector.

What sets the BSE apart globally is its recognition as one of the preeminent stock exchanges worldwide. This international reputation reflects the BSE's commitment to fostering a vibrant and dynamic marketplace for securities trading.

At the heart of the BSE's success lies its robust infrastructure that facilitates efficient trading operations. Coupled with this is its adherence to stringent regulatory guidelines, which ensures transparency and fairness in all its dealings.

Muhurat Trading On BSE

Muhurat Trading holds immense cultural significance in India and is a unique practice observed in the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) during an auspicious occasion, Diwali which will be held on Friday, 01st November 2024.

Muhurat, derived from the Sanskrit word "Muhurta," refers to an auspicious time window considered favourable for conducting essential activities. During Muhurat Trading, which lasts for about an hour, investors and traders participate in the stock market to mark the beginning of a new financial year and seek blessings for prosperity and good fortune.

Unlike regular trading days, Muhurat Trading takes place during a specific time slot determined by the BSE, usually in the evening. It serves as a symbolic gesture to encourage positive sentiment in the market and is viewed as an opportune moment to make new investments or conduct trading activities.

This cherished tradition showcases the deep-rooted cultural values and beliefs that intertwine with the world of finance in India.
