Experience that Makes a Difference
Recently, SEBI introduced a new set of regulations (Peak Margin Circular 2020) that forbids the use of leverage in India's Futures and Options market. It's been challenging to ascertain the regulator's perspective. Meanwhile, a growing number of investors are choosing fixed-income securities over the stock market when making investing decision. According to Wisdom Capital, these changes will make it more difficult for retail traders to engage in market trading. As a result, it will cause volumes and, consequently, liquidity to decline. It also implies that a drop in retail involvement was one of the most significant repercussions of the SEBI's recent activities. It will also make it impossible for the majority of market players to compete on an even playing field. To counter this trend, Wisdom Capital devised yet another novel strategy to entice clients to the financial markets. A fixed deposit (FD) interest rate set by banks will serve as the benchmark for the interest rate Wisdom Capital would pay on the funds kept by its customers. The trading community will benefit into ways: firstly, by earning FD linked interest on the funds kept with Wisdom Capital, and, secondly, by trading the financial markets.
Innovative Marketing Tools
The regulations put in place by SEBI would inevitably lead to the oligopoly like structures in the market, with a hand few controlling the financial markets in the future. Again to cope with the stressful times, Wisdom Capital is leaving no stone unturned in order to stimulate retail involvement and to increase retail participation. Wisdom Tree Private Limited, Wisdom Group company, will focus on algorithmic trading-base product baskets. Currently, the company offers free APIs as well as other ALGO-based products that allow flexibility for traders while devising their trading strategies.
Wisdom Capital, one of the finest discount brokers in India, is assisting the new generation of traders by offering the most ingenious trading tools and technological prowess supported by a progressive technological platform. It is also pulling out all the stops by using the legal process to contest SEBI’s Peak Margin Circular. Undoubtedly, the entrepreneurial spirit at Wisdom Capital shows no sign of dying out.
Undoubtedly, the entrepreneurial and industrious efforts of Wisdom Capital will enable it to chart new territories
