cloud computing…

James: Hi Bob, do you know about cloud computing?

Bob: yes James, I do. It’s the latest technology and widely preferred these days in many processes

James: so what does it stand for?

Bob: it is just like purchase of software applications, storage and other resources from provider delivers these services through internet. So cloud computing means complete process takes over there and all the process and computations happen according to what you have commanded for.

Cloud has been integrated of different applications, content, object storage, database, identity, monitoring, computing and many more. All these components are configured in such a way that it works uniquely.

Bob: well, since it has lot of computational and configuration processes, this is well handled and managed by professional experts. Most of the cloud services that we are using are public and privately owned. For ex; Google, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, WordPress and many more are used widely in public domain, hence database for these systems should be quickly accessible and individual accounts should be monitored to receive the inputs from the user, which is processed by the cloud and reverted to users as reply. Thus these private companies set up their own servers and configure the specifications required to make it function accordingly.

It will help you to manage your capital investment due to low cost of cloud computing.

James: so is it the better option so far now?

Bob: yes it is and it is expected to expand more in coming years to every field that deals with data storage and auto task management.

Availing High speed broadband in UK

UK is one among the developed nation in the globe and had marked its growth in infrastructure to the highest level as compared to other parts of the world. Growth in infrastructure also includes scientific and technical approach towards social improvements, Broadband is one of the tech-infrastructure that is versatile and widely used all over the world to get connected to each other by means of internet. Broadband is the telecommunication signal or device with higher bandwidth, which is capable of handling greater traffic seamlessly. Information signals through broadband travels nearly at speed of light and hence the dial-up system is least approached to get faster internet and broadband has been the best choice. In UK, given the high-tech social implementations all over the country has made broadband as basic available factor. But this takes a twist when it comes to speed of the internet available all over the UK as the broadband allocators have a role to play in getting the high speed internet available everywhere in the UK irrespective of the distance and place. High speed broadband internet connections are very possible and common in city extensions and metro cities of the UK but in rural areas, where the demand for the broadband drops and supplier will not get the benefit by setting high cost implications in those rural areas but this is not the same perception of every broadband provider.

There are few major broadband providers who made it possible for rural people to avail high speed internet. British Telecom (BT), Virgin media, Orange, O2, sky broadband, Talk-Talk broadband are major broadband providers in UK. British Telecom has been the widely used service provider, more than 30% of broadband connections are by BT. BT has Fibre-to-the-cabinet network which offers speed of upto 40Mb and is available to 15% of the UK. Recently Virgin media has tried to set the lead by providing speed of 50Mb but price of the offer is high as well, £35 per month. As usual, high speed connections have higher price tags regardless of the download conditions put forth per month. For normal use “20Mb” broadband speeds is enough and standard choice but “8Mb” is losing the popularity due to growth in providing high speed and competition between major broadband providers. Ofcom regulations and agreements with private service providers has added much more benefits in dragging the prices of the broadband connections lower since 2005. Apart from fundamental approach, one can increase the speed of the broadband by taking care of minor adjustments like using Ethernet cables rather than extension cables, which will solve the speed issue.  In some cases, given you should use only extension cables then try to use the shortest possible cable and avoid tangling, coiling of cables. You can also use BT master socket by connecting directly with modem or router to minimize the internal interference and get high speed. Nevertheless, having a good quality router can make your broadband connection speedy.

Factors that move the Indian Markets

Well, I lost huge money when i was trading in stock market, which is very risky as the losers address it and it is too much risky when it comes to Indian stock markets (NSE.BSE).

But why I lost money is the easiest question that you can shoot at me reading the above poem..!!! yes, this question is equally valued with the Heading of this topic..!!!. When i began to trade 7 months back i was new comer, at least to the markets.More than this i am an engineering student, pursuing 2nd year.

Another thing that i would tell you is my parents never knew that i am trading in stock market and need not to say you that the whole money was mine, in the sense i dint borrow anything from my parents.

You may wonder knowing that i started trading with 4000 and not only this money was little but my knowledge as well was little too..! but it was must to ride the cycle to cover up my expenses and i did..:-)

Oh why i am telling you all this when the topic itself is different ..?? i am really sorry..!! back to market.

I lost lot of money (4000 was big for me..!!) in the beginning and reasons are as follows..

* I dint know what the FII (foreign investors) do here..                                                                                                                                           – They not only invest in crore’s  but also plays a vital role in moving our market up and also they can drag our market down if they sell what they had bought..!!! so you should keep in touch with this data daily to keep tracking the markets..!

*Global cues..

– it is very much important to know how US and Europe market did overnight to decide what Indian markets will do today. So always have a look at the Global economy daily. If US and Europe market is positive then ours will be next day..!!

* What does SGX NIFTY mean..??? i never worried in the beginning..!!                                                                                                             – It is Singapore exchange, which covers the Indian Nfty and it opens at daily 8 AM (IST). If it had opened in positive then our market will also open positive , which is at 9 AM..!! easy trick ..ain’t it..??

* How is Crude trading..??                                                                                                                                                                                                      -It is the commodity item, which will guide the oil and gas products in every country. if it low then you will enjoy spike in next day of the market..!! also market may fall if crude goes higher..

*Futures and Options and Open Interest..!!                                                                                                                                                                    – It is covered in the concept of Derivatives, which is another type of trading in market. It is volatile trade and you can double your money within hours if market moves up very well and also you can loose money ( like me) if market goes down very badly. So think twice before trading in Options..!

– Open interest , is the usual data that a trader can get from many resources like websites and Tv channels. This data tells us about the mood of the trader on the particular stock . If the OI is up then stock usually moves up..so you can bet on the stock which has got highest OI build up..

* Volumes traded..                                                                                                                                                                                                                   – These volumes indicate the trade interest of the trader. If the volumes are higher in particular stock then it is good to trade in that stock. movements in such stocks will also be high, maybe on the upside or downside.

* Board meeting and Dividend and Buy back and RBI meet and Monthly evaluations ..

– Board Meeting, if particular stock of the company is holding a board meeting, which you can easily know through stock market websites and you can see little spike in the movement of the stock, due to the board meeting anticipating an favorable action so.

-Dividend, it is the bonus value of the particular stock and it is mentioned by the authority of the companies. It is always good to hold the stocks which gives good dividend.

-Buy back, any company that is listed in stock market can offer a Buy back, where in comapny will buy the shares from holders for suitable price to re-launch the stock at the price they wish to.

-RBI meet, Reserve Bank of India will have a meeting every month to decide the Interest rate hikes to cool the rising Inflation, if. and if it rises the rate hike then banking sector will suffer a little and also indian markets.

-Monthly data, maybe Inflation data and Industrial data (IIP)  which will be revealed every month have impact on share market.

If Inflation is High then market will fall. If IIP  is High then it will boost Indian market..!!

These are the best financial portal you can grab lot of info
