  1. Let us say you buy shares from the stock market (stock market facilitates you in making your transactions) and sell those shares we can say that there is an exchange taking place where a buyer buys a stock and a seller sells a stock. You can buy and sell shares through a stock market/Secondary market that is linked with the Exchanges, in India we have two main stock Exchanges i.e NSE and BSE where NSE stands for National Stock Exchange and BSE stands Bombay Stock Exchange. Now let us understand what is NSE and BSE in brief,

There are Top 30 companies which are listed in BSE as their financial performance is very good. The companies which are listed under BSE are called the SENSEX index.
