Mr. Sachin Gupta, CEO, Share India Securities

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], March 28: Share India Securities Ltd. is a listed, tech based financial conglomerate which specializes in latency-based trading platform. Talking about the recent hike in STT by the Government, Mr. Sachin Gupta, CEO, Share India Securities added, “The Indian trading mechanism has now shifted from traditional to technology-based trading platform. Earlier where traders and investors were using traditional trading systems, now they are using algo based trading system where orders are executed in less than a second. Fast trading systems are now becoming a need for the traders and investors. 

The introduction of higher STT will impact the sentiments of traders and investors who want to make a full-time career in the stock market. In recent we observed that many professionals like CAs, Lawyers, Doctors, engineers are making it a full-time career option. 

Young generation adopted it as a fulltime profession. Data shows that due to the participation of new age investor the volumes also increased unexpectedly which boost the market as well as the economy.

Increase in STT will increase the cost to the option traders and reduce the profits which affects the sentiments of Tech-savvy youth. It can also lead them to move away from the profession. This may lower the volume like we saw at the time when government increased the CTT, resulting in commodity trading volumes decreasing drastically.”
