Understanding the Stock Market

Understanding the Stock Market


The stock market refers to how pieces of various companies are bought and sold. Investing money means to make money from your money. A share is a piece of the company that you can buy. A corporation is any business that splits itself into different shares. In many ways, it has the same legal rights as a person. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a measure of how thirty large stocks are doing. It serves as a measure for the strength of the rest of the stock market. A bull-market means a time when the stock market is doing well and the values of shares are high, while a bear-market is the opposite. The stock market and the economy are connected; when one is doing well, so is the other. Learn all this and more in Understanding the Stock Market.
