Market is set to opening positive after three-day losing streak on account of strong global cues. Positive cues from global markets and some short covering may help the Indian market at the opening trade. However, rate hike worries and continued profit taking amid the Christmas holiday-shortened week may limit the upside.

According to data released by the NSE, in the last session, FIIs were net sellers of index futures to the tune of Rs 600.34 crore, while they bought index options worth Rs 375.60 crore. They were net buyers of stock futures to the tune of Rs 146.14 crore and bought stock options worth Rs 26.87 crore.

What is a Bucket Shop?

"Bucket Shop is a specifically defined term under the criminal law of many states in the United States which make it a crime to operate a bucket shop. [2] Typically the criminal law definition refers to an operation in which the customer is sold what is supposed to be a derivative interest in a security or commodity future, but there is no transaction made on any exchange. The transaction goes 'in the bucket' and is never executed. Without an actual underlying transaction, the customer is betting against the bucket shop operator, not participating in the market."

The SEC believes that "internalization" is somehow different, and this affects ALL of your online trading, no matter what you are trading. Trades that are executed outside of the exchange, never reaching the main market, effectively hide data from technical analysis, and skew pricing.
