How do investments work:

The concept behind how the stock market works is pretty simple. The stock market let’s buyers and sellers negotiate prices and make trades.

The stock market works through a network of exchanges — you may have heard of the Dhaka Stock Exchange. Companies list shares of their stock on an exchange through a process called an Initial Public Offering or IPO. Investors purchase those shares, which allows the company to raise money to grow its business. Investors can then buy and sell these stocks among themselves, and the exchange tracks the supply and demand of each listed stock.

That supply and demand help determine the price for each security or the levels at which stock market participants — investors and traders — are willing to buy or sell.

Buyers offer a “bid,” or the highest amount they’re willing to pay, which is usually lower than the amount sellers “ask” for in exchange. This difference is called the bid-ask spread. For a trade to occur, a buyer needs to increase his price or a seller needs to decrease hers.

Difference between saving vs investment:

There’s a difference between saving and investing: Saving means putting away money for later use in a safe place, such as in a bank account. Investing means taking some risk and buying assets that will ideally increase in value and provide you with more money than you put in, over the long term.

Saving vs Investment:

To meet short-term goals or unplanned expenses
Long-term wealth creation and capital appreciation
Ideal for the short-term
Investing for a longer duration usually yields positive returns
Relatively lower returns
Potential to earn high returns
Access to cash
Easier to access to cash
Some investment options come with a lock-in period. However, there are a few options that offer high liquidity, such as liquid mutual funds
Risk Involved

Investments are subject to market risk
