The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) is the principal stock exchange of the country located in the capital Accra. Through its automated trading system, the GSE opens for continuous trading every working day from 10:00 to 15:00 GMT. Settlement of trades, handled by Bank of Ghana's Central Securities Depositary, is done on a T+3 basis (business days). Backed by the SEC, the regulatory body for the securities market in the country, the GSE has various investor protection provisions such as rules against insider trading as well as a fidelity fund to compensate investors for losses incurred as a result of malpractice by a licensed dealing member of the bourse.

In January 2011, the GSE began publishing two indices, namely, the GSE Composite Index (GSE-CI) and the GSE Financial Stocks Index (GSE-FSI). The GSE-CI is a market capitalization weighted index comprising all listed ordinary shares with the exception of those of listed companies that have shares listed on other markets. Calculation of the index is based on the volume-weighted average closing price of the constituent stocks. The GSE-FSI is exactly like the GSE-CI but has as its constituents stocks from the financials sector, including those in the banking and insurance industries. The GSE-CI is regarded as the benchmark index of the Ghana stock market.

The GSE has two categories of listing, namely, the main board and the Ghana Alternative Market (GAX). The GAX, operated as a parallel market since 2015, is aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises with strong growth potential. The table below presents equities from both categories. Currently, the types of stocks listed on the GSE are common stocks (ordinary shares), preferred stocks (preference shares), and exchange traded funds.

    Please what happened with MTHGH today 11/05/2022, what accounts for such a high volume /value traded?
    Is it part of the localisation process or just a bloc trade?

      It's likely a foreign investor exiting their position. Tech stocks are plunging all over the world.

    MTN is the best in terms of dividend pay out.MTN pays dividend in every six months.and it is the only company which gave back its ipo money to its shareholders in the form of dividend;unprecedented since the inception of the GSE.i stand to be corrected.

    How do I start trading on the Ghana stocks market

      To start trading on the Ghana Stock Exchange, a prospective investor must contact a licensed stockbroker of their choice. A stockbroker is a professional who helps investors to either buy or sell shares on the stock exchange, as well as offer advice to investors about which securities to trade in. An Authorised Dealing Officer is a broker who has been licensed by the Ghana Stock Exchange to be a trader in securities on the exchange. You can see the full list of licensed dealing members of the Ghana Stock Exchange here:

      Now that you've picked your broker, you then proceed to open a securities account with the brokerage firm by completing an account opening form with your personal particulars, a passport picture, identification (voter card, driving licence, passport, national ID) and contact address. The process of opening a CSD account is simple and free of charge but requires a minimum balance just as a bank account does.

      With your securities account confirmed, you can start trading in the shares of the listed companies either by direct placement of order at the broker's premises, phone call, or via the broker's internet portal. The amount of money you need to invest on the Ghana Stock Exchange depends on the prices of shares you select. Shares are usually traded in batches or round lots of 100. Where the price of a particular stock is high, an investor can contact a broker to buy fewer than 100 shares, commonly referred to as odd lots.

      For more information contact the Ghana Stock Exchange at the Cedi House, Liberia Avenue, Accra, or via phone +233-302-669-908/914/935, or its website

    As a student, being interested in knowing about the Ghana stock market, where do I start my reading or learning? Are there any recommended books, pages or sites I can learn from? Or is anyone available to help me learn?

      You need the fundamentals. And control your emotions. Psychology is more important on the stock market than mathematics.
      Read the intelligent investor by Benjamin Graham.

    Please how long does it take to receive payment after selling your shares?

      That's T+3 or three days after your shares are sold.

      Know the business you want to invest in. Confirm that they have a solid organization and product and they are doing well in their space. Then also look through their numbers and track record in terms of profitability, dividends and P/E. Buy only after doing your due diligence. If you buy well, you will not be perturbed by temporary fluctuations in the market
