Importance of stock market

Just wondering what would happen if markets close for one quarter. @nithin will everything just blow up …or the country could go bankrupt. I mean I know all those things about why markets are there and so on .
Just curious to know what would happen in above type of case specially with reference to Derivatives positions.

I found that OTC derivative (that are governed by ISDA Master Agreements) positions will get exercised on the eight day from the actual exercise/expiration date if the market continue to remain closed. This website explains it well -

Here are some recent examples of ISDA guidance when an unintended market closure happens -

But I am also curious about what would happen with exchange-traded derivatives (ETDs) in such prolonged market closure scenario.

Actually isda is more of international thing ,not sure about it’s relevant in Indian markets which is very shallow ,I think it regulates otc market mainly

By this I mean banks and all…

market provides liquidity and cashflow… if that is taken away there will be catastrophic effects… we are not economists to gauge the extent but we all can guess…
