The number of investors trading securities in the secondary market over the NEPSE TMS platform has surpassed 600,000. Following the lockout placed to avoid the second wave of Covid-19, the number of investors trading online has exploded.
According to Nepse, due to the ban on public movement, inability to operate other areas of investment, and the Securities Board of Nepal (SEBON) promoting online transactions, the number of people taking “usernames and passwords” for online transactions has increased.
The Securities Board of Nepal (SEBON), the regulatory body, has directed brokers to make as many provisions as possible for online transactions.
Lockdown has paralyzed many parts of the economy. However, the stock market is open for business. You can trade online from anywhere. As a result, Nepse has been breaking records in terms of trading volume, transaction volume, and market indicators.
