the stock market went down because stocks were being bought super fast and the market could not handle it and the prices fell.People rushed to sell there stocks before the p…rices fell lower and lower. Eventually the stock market fell on Oct.29,1929.
hey there i know stock market is going down and the main reason behind it is inflation and the price hikes in petrol and diesel mainly and other also contribute to it.....bu…t there is going to be a correction soon.
It's ALL about earnings -- how much money the company makes (or doesn't make) -- good old fashioned profits -- the bottom line. This is a true answer that is very easy to lose… sight of when Internet stocks are selling for hundreds of times the earnings that they don't even have, yet, and in-the-red IPOs that end in ".com" rise to higher market capitalizations during their first day of trading than companies that actually make lots of money and have been doing so for years. You see, another answer, but one that is "less true," is that stocks go up because of hype. Hype, momentum, the greater fool theory -- all ways to describe the seemingly irrational way some stocks behave. But when you look closely, you will see that the hype is always about earnings. I said this answer was "less true" because although stocks do go up because of hype and momentum, they also go back down eventually unless the earnings are there to sustain them. When hype-based momentum turns around, it can get ugly. One of the few indisputable facts of investing is that over the long term, stock prices rise because company earnings rise, or vice versa. But the fact that stocks rise because of earnings is only long-term truth. Prices don't track earnings that closely over short time periods, and even long-term, the relationship is not necessarily precise. There's a lot of room for hype. At any given point in time, stock prices within some earnings-dictated range are more influenced by the market's perception of what earnings will be. Not what earnings are , but what they will be. Sometimes those perceptions are realistic, sometimes they are wildly unrealistic. But always the perceptions are about earnings. One of Wall Street's truisms is that if you know the price of a stock will go to $50 tomorrow, it will go to $50 today. Think about it. If you know a stock is going up, the natural reaction is to buy it. If "everyone" knows it 's going up, and, therefore, "everyone" starts buying, what happens? Increased demand plus limited supply equals increased price. As the price approaches what "everyone" thinks it will be tomorrow, demand slows to equal supply, and the price levels off.
If the US stock markets goes down then the other countries stock markets and those intruments wich are being trade against DOLLAR wil rise.
From the expert who was predicting a crash for over a year:. http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Commentary/ByAuthor/BillFleckenstein.aspx
the people who buy and sell stocks give "bid" and "ask" prices for the stocks that they are buying or selling.when the ask price of some one selling and the bid of some one se…lling meet, that is the price of the stock.when they don't meet either the seller must give in to the buyer and go lower or the buyer give in to the seller and go higher. If the sellers are pessimistic about the market and keep selling for cheap then the price goes down. And if the buyers are optimistic and buy higher it will go up.
The stock exchanges are called markets because that is where representatives of buyers and sellers meet to perform daily transactions on behalf of their customers, similar to …any other market for products or services.
It changes every day, but right now, its down, by ALOT, when the recession ends the stock market is estimated to go up, so save those stocks, unless you need the extra money… from selling them now. You will probably get more money if you save them though.
Puts and calls can be either futures (which require the contract's buyer to complete the transaction at a certain price on a certain date) or options (which allow, but don't r…equire, the buyer to complete the transaction on the certain date for the certain price). A put buyer either can or will sell to the put seller the stock named in the contract. A call buyer either can or will buy from the call seller the stock.
Stocks and shares are a long term investment. As a rule of thumb over 10 to15 years the stock market on average will outperform bank interest rates in the same country in retu…rns. That said averages are made of good investments and bad added together and you have no way of knowing which yours is. In short do not invest in the stock market capital which you can not afford to lose. Assuming you have invested what you can afford to lose then trying to do something about short term returns is generally speaking a fallacy. A fallacy on which managed funds are based. In general terms these managed funds are a con. If you have bought a stock of a reputable company which is trading below what you bought it and you have no reason to believe it will fold (declare bankruptcy) then you should let your investment ride for the period of 10 to 15 years. If you have certain knowledge that the company will fold and you sell then you are possibly guilty of insider trading. Spreading your money around averages out your risk and holding a portfolio of shares of various risk/return ratios across a large range of markets is possibly the safest option. If this sounds remarkably like gambling and spread betting then do not be surprised. Both insurance and investment owe more in kinship to gambling than any form of statistical science or any honourable business. There are probably more crooks rigging the investment and insurance markets than found at your local horse or dog race track. In conclusion: Do not invest in the stock market that which you can not afford to lose. Do not invest everything in a single company or a single market. Do not treat it as a short term investment.
The US stock market perhaps.......(retard)
There are call and put options and call and put futures contracts. They work the same, except that with an option contract you can allow the contract to expire worthless, whil…e a futures contract has to either be closed out or settled. Let's use options terms. A call option gives the purchaser the right, but not the obligation, to buy stock at a certain price on or before a certain date. A put option gives the purchaser the right, but not the obligation, to sell stock at a certain price on or before a certain date. You buy a call if you think the price of the stock is going up. Calls become worth exercising (or "in the money") when the stock is more expensive than the "strike price" on the contract. So...if you have a call whose strike price is $20, and the stock goes to $23, you exercise the contract, buy for $20 per share and sell at $23. You had to pay a "premium" to buy the option, so subtract the premium from the difference between what you bought it for and what you sold it for to determine your profit. You buy a put if you think the price of the stock is going down, and a lot of these are bought to stop losses. You have a stock you paid $20 for. It's gone up to $40 and you'd like to keep some of the profits. You therefore buy a put at $38. If the stock drops below $38, you exercise the option, sell the stock, subtract the premium and keep the profits.
It was plummeting in value.
When the stock market goes down, the unit price of the shares held by you will be lesser, may be even that of the purchase price, resulting in monetary loss.Those having exper…ience in stock market, hold them and wait for the opportune moment so that their shares may fetch a decent price.
