When you visit the websites of NSE or BSE, you will find bulk deals reported on a daily basis. You can also go to the archive section and check out the bulk deals for the last few years or a few months. We have all heard of bulk deals in the equity markets. What does a bulk deal mean and what is the effect of bulk deals on share prices? An important question is how to know if the bulk deal is a buy or sell deal since every transaction has two sides. A bulk deal does give us some important clues about the broad trends and the interest pockets in the equity market. A bulk deal is a large chunk of shares that are bought or sold in the market that exceeds 0.5% of the share capital of the company. As per SEBI regulations, all bulk deals have to be reported to the exchanges after the end of a trade. Bulk deals can buy deals, sell deals or adjusted deals. Bulk deals are not on a per order basis but based on the total shares net bought or net sold during a particular day.
