Market capitalization

Market capitalization is the aggregate valuation of a Company based on its current share price and the total number of outstanding share capital. It is calculated by multiplying the total number of shares issued by the Company by the current market price of one share. It is the collective wealth of all the shareholders put together.With the Chinese currency scenario, reducing oil prices, increase in interest rates by the US Fed, the global markets fell in the first month of 2016!
