Dear Friends

I want to invest in stock market for the first time. But I have few questions:-

1. I have demat account. Do I need a trading a/c as well? What's the difference between the two?

2. Do I have to deposit money with a stock broker before investing?

3. What is the minimum amount to invest in the market?

4. Are shares bought/sold in lots only?

Please answer my queries.
