CHAPTER ONE

1.0         INTRODUCTION

Before I start, I will like to plan the term stock exchange. Stock exchange is a market which facilities buying and selling of share, stock, bonds, debentures and other securities. It is essentially a secondary market for buying and selling of already existing securities.

1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The Nigerian stock exchange started as Lagos stock exchange, which was established by the Lagos stock exchange act of 1961. it was registered on 15th  September 1960 and began its operation on 5th June 1961.

            Its’ establishment was a follow up to the report of committee appointed to advise them an ways and means of fostering a share market in Nigeria. This committee was set up in 1958 under professor R.H Barback by the federal government to consider ways and means of promoting a stock exchange market in Nigeria at its inceptions. The Lagos stock exchange was heavily subsided by the federal government institutions. It was transformed into the Nigerian stock exchange in 1977. the Nigerian stock exchange has branches in Kaduna, Port – Harcourt, Ibadan and Onitsha.

1.2         STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

Like most development market, the problem facing the capital market in Nigeria are as follows:

INADEQUATE SUPPLY OF SECURITIES.

Perhaps the most serious problem facing the capital Market is inadequate supply of securities. Most companies, especially the indigenous ones area still reluctant to raise fund. This now result not supplying enough securities to the maintaining of the public.

IGNORANCE: the level of public awareness as to the benefits derivable from the operations of the capital market is very low due to ignorance among the members of the capital market.

INFRASTRUCTURE:  transactions after take weeks or months before they are finished. Therefore, resulting to drag and delay of issuing securities to the public.

PARTICPATION:  the Nigerian stock exchange is not fully developed, all dealings are handled by brokers. So the jobber do not participate in the market.

1.3         OBJECTIVES OF STUDY

From all that has been written above, it is the aim of this study to facilitates buying and selling of share, stocks, bonds, debentures and other securities to the government and to other members of the public willing to buy.    

            It is also the aim of the stock exchange to provide forum for determination of security prices and raising funds through listed securities.

1.4         SIGNIFICANCE OF STUDY

The stock exchange enables securities to be valued at any particular place or time. Stock exchange protects the holders of securities from fraud. It also inspects applications for new quotations.

It provides a market where those wishing to invest can buy securities and those wishing to reclaim an invested securities can sell such securities on terms that are agreeable to both parties.

It sometimes arranges for a new issue of shares to be made. Example, when a private company wants to convert to a public company.

Stock exchange market deals in securities of government and commercial undertakings all over the world. Therefore with its regular contacts with principal stock exchange in all parts of the world, the stock exchange market is the best exchange of world market.
