Biggest Difference Between Indian And US Stock Markets Is About Making Stock-Buying Affordable
Buying Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) stock from India requires a huge amount of money. Yes, you need almost Rs 3.20 crore to buy 1 share of Warren Buffett’s company. Similarly, to own one Apple share, you need to shell out over Rs 12000! But, buying US stocks is still affordable compared to buying shares in Indian stock exchanges.
Before buying US stocks from India, you need to convert Indian Rupees into US dollars to complete the transaction. This is why investing in US stocks may not be affordable to all investors in India.
