Brokerage

Definition of Brokerage

Brokerage is the fee that an investor or trader must pay to a brokerage in exchange for its services. Brokerage varies from platform to platform. But, broadly speaking, brokerage on intraday, futures, and options trading is known to be higher than equity delivery (investing).

Average Daily Trading Volume

The Average Daily Trading Volume (ADTV) is a technical indicator that indicates the number of shares that were bought and sold on average across one or more trading days.

A high ADTV means that more investors are interested in a stock while a low ADTV implies that a stock isn’t on the radar of many investors. The formula for Average Daily Trading Volume (ADTV) is:

ADTV x days = Total trading volume of stock across x days / x days

Capital Expenditure

Capital expenditure or CapEx is the amount of money a company spends on maintaining, upgrading, or buying new assets like machinery, equipment, property, and others.

Cash Flow Statement

A cash flow statement is used to present the amount of money that has been earned and spent by a business over a specific period of time. There are three sections or parts to a cash flow statement:

  • Operating Activities: cash flows from the core activities of a business that generate income as well as cash equivalents (current assets & liabilities)
  • Investing Activities: cash flows from investments or sales of long term assets
  • Financing Activities: an action or activity that brings a change in a business’ equity capital and/or borrowings

Beta Coefficient

Beta coefficient is used to measure the volatility of stocks in relation to changes in the market. Basically, Beta helps investors understand the risks associated with a stock compared to the market.

The formula to calculate the Beta coefficient is:

Beta (β) = Covariance (Ri, Rm) / Variance (Rm)

Where:

  • Ri = a stock's return
  • Rm = overall market's return
  • Covariance = ups & downs of stock returns versus ups & downs of market returns
  • Variance = the difference between market returns and its average


Generally, Beta values are of four types:

  • Beta < 1.0: stock less volatile than the market
  • Beta = 1.0: stock just as volatile as the market
  • Beta > 1.0: stock more volatile than the market
  • Negative Beta: stock shares inverse relation with the market

Abc Wave Theory

Abc Wave Theory or Elliot Wave Theory is used to determine the direction of the stock market by identifying recurring waves or patterns over the long term. The theory is named after Ralph Nelson Elliott.

5 Motive or Impulse Waves are formed if the movement is in the direction of the trend. 3 Corrective Waves are formed if the movement is against the direction of the trend.

Interest Rate Futures

Interest rate futures are derivative contracts whose underlying instrument is any instrument that bears interest.

Just like any other futures contract, interest rate futures also give the right and obligation to fulfil the terms of the contract on expiry.

The price of interest rate futures and the interest rate itself shares an inverse relationship. If interest rates move higher, then the futures will be less valuable.
