Way Forward for the NSE

The Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE) will in a few months start electronic stock trading – which is expected to triple the volume of share traded at the exchange daily. Also the current allowed price spread of 10% will be increased to 20%.

NSE Chairman Jimnah Mbaru has over the years made several speeches advocating for the NSE to forge trade partnerships with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE)including having Kenyan companies’ cross-list on their board. Kenyan companies that can consider cross listing include East African Breweries, which was ranked the 76th largest in Africa, and possibly Kengen.

The JSE which recently went public saw the volume of trading and liquidity increase many times over when it began electronic trading a few years ago.

    Banks, this is great news for all investors,
    We will probably see a breed of day traders in this continent now that so many investors will have access to the market and trading will be in real time.

    will trading be live and will there be realtime market streaming data services?
    I think we will still have to go thru brokers and with the spread being increased, then market prices will easily be fixed by the brokers.Unless they offer live trading where you can lock the price that you see quoted on the exchange, then brokers wont have the power of setting the prices.
    I respect mbaru for his foresight in advocating JSE listing, but will kenyan companies be able to adjust to international accounting standards? What i propose is that we first build checks and balances within NSE, and give the CMA some teeth to do proper regulation of the capital markets. as it is the brokers have it their way, with Ntalami (former stockbroker) as the CMA MD, and Mbaru as the NSE chairman, how can stock brokers pretend to be able to self regulate themselves? lots of things need to be set right before we even think of crosslisting on the JSE.

    Mashatall, the greatest benefit of electronic trading will be the time it takes to complete a trade.
    If you visit the trading floor at Nation Centre you find the guys in red coats really controlling the counters and the prices and at times the time it takes for one broker to buy or sell depends on how loud he can shout or how soon he will draw the attention of this guy.
    Unless you are really influencial, it takes on average 36hours to buy a stock this days, this new system ought to reduce that time.

    As for the NSE and CMA management, I too am tired of the same old faces and it’s about time we saw some new brains.

    Reform in the NSE and CMA will probably come from the ministry of finance or trade or the lobbying of a concerned MP but I wont expect it from inside. The advantage of going this way is that JSE and SA investors will demand reforms before they invest in our stocks and vice versa, this could help us style up.

    Ken: welcome to the blog world

    Mashatall: I think that will depend on the stockbrokers, who we will still have to go through – there will still remain a lot of grey area in the trading process

    Dear Visitors,

    This Blog is really nice and informative. We are pleased to know this
    blog is really helping people. Its our pleasure to post
    Informative content on this useful blog created by webmaster.

    As we all know major stock market exchanges in India are

    and NSE. Full form of BSE is Bombay stock exchange covering SENSEX
    where as

    NSE is
    National stock exchange covering Nifty and Nifty stocks.

    Now a days USA is facing recession which is affecting world market and
    recently we have witnessed major fall in Nifty and Sensex.

    In this fall many investors were trapped and loosed around 50% to 70%
    of their portfolio which is a major issue and need to be taken care

    Stock market is risky and will remain risk always still one can
    minimize risk factor in it by using proper stoploss. As the name suggest
    Stoploss , it stops the losses
    which one can incur in the market.

    There are few levels which we call support and resistance level which
    we suggest one should strictly follow for coming days if they want to
    survive in stock market.

    Right now Nifty is direction less

    Major suport-4660 below it next will be 4400.If breached then 4000.

    On upper side Res- 5025 closed above can take Nifty to 5150-5200 . 2-3
    closings above 5200 means 5400.

    We suggest strictly follow these level and enter in market as per these
    levels as these are very crucial levels technically.

    Please feel free to contact us for any query.

    Have a Nice trading days ahead.
