The information network of business relationships is perhaps the central element of the production technology of the 21st-century stock investment. Technology is a stock of specie, which tosses into head-tail outcomes. Thus, when online brokerage accounts were introduced, this new form of investment revolutionized the stock market trading in both dimensions of volume and volatility. Yet, individual in Bangladesh cannot have free access to stock market trading other than by going through the brokerage stations, but substantially lower fees and commissions have opened up increased opportunity for every potential investor. Now, an individual can browse the Internet and go for the stock market information available on the webpage in order to have an instant informed decision about the investment. The surplus units of the society are not supposed to invest their money. So, they are often ready to supply their money to purchase securities from the capital markets. As a result stock exchange plays a crucial role to mobilize capital or the development of a capital market.

◙ Stock Exchange:
Stock exchanges are formally organized secondary markets for financial assets that have already been issued in primary capital markets. Stock markets have become the hallmark of successful modern capitalist economies, despite the frequency of volatile price movements that lead to excessive speculation followed by panics and despite repeated scandals. They play an important role, however, for both the primary capital market and the mobilization of bank credit within any economy, basically by providing liquidity for the initial investors in government or corporate debt or in corporation stock. The daily pricing of all such financial products on a stock exchange also makes them ideal instruments as collateral for loans. In sum, stock exchanges are important complements to the efficient operation of the rest of an economy's financial sector.
