And that, Webster says, is defined as: a place where stocks and other securities are publicly bought and sold; also, an association of dealers conducting such business according to fixed rules. Stock represents the capital of a business, represented by shares.

During this time, there were a lot of auction market trades that involved a lot of commodities. This was located on Wall Street in New York City. These trades did not include any stocks or financial securities as we currently know them. In 1790, all of this began to change significantly. Alexander Hamilton, who was then Secretary of the United States Treasury, suggested that our country settle the debt from the Revolutionary War through issuing...

    Beating The Stock Market

    Is it possible to "beat the stock market"? In theory, yes, it is something that investors can do. But as you'll see, it often takes a combination of skill, luck, and good old-fashioned hard work. First of all, you have to change the way you think about yourself as an investor. Consider yourself to be an "involved" investor, rather than a passive one. To do this, you may earn a profit by hanging onto your stocks for a short amount of time, purchasing stocks when the prices fall due to market fluctuations, and then selling them later...

Dividends are usually pretty small...you typically make less than $1.00 for each share of stock that you own. But they add up, especially if you use them to buy more stock. That's where dividend reinvestment comes in. If you invest the money that you make from dividends into more shares of that stock, then...

    Equity Office Properties

    When it comes to real estate, there's one stock towering above its competition...literally. Equity Office Properties, based out of the windy city, is the nation's largest REIT with interest in over 750 office buildings throughout the country. That's 120 million square feet of office space.

The company has been headed by Sam Zell, considered by many to be the greatest real estate businessmen ever. His specialty lies in buying distressed properties and turning them into profitable investments.As many of you probably know,...

    ETrade Financial Stock

    The last few years haven't been easy for online brokers. With more and more people looking for safer investments than stocks, the online brokers are seeing their trading volumes dwindle. And with fewer people making trades, it gives the online brokers lower revenues.But despite this, I think there are still a few brokerage stocks that are appealing. One of these is E*Trade Financial. As a few of you remember, E*Trade hit an all-time high of $62/share in early 1999. Since then, it has seen its stock drop to its current level of $5.70/share.The biggest reason for this is the hurting...

    Ethan Allen Stock Pick

    The last year or two have been quite turbulent, particularly the last couple of months. We've been up, then down, then up, then down. Maybe you should take a little time off, relax, and treat yourself to some new furniture to kick your feet up on. Or better yet...treat yourself to some furniture stock for only $30.90/share. The stock I'm talking about is Ethan Allen Interiors and I think it could be a good buy right now. The company, named after the American patriot in the Revolutionary War, has revolutionary ideas for the furniture business. The company owns 17 factories and...

    On the Trading Floor

    Imagine people running across a floor in a frenzy, rushing to large booths where computer screens are located everywhere. Once there, they search for someone to buy or sell the stock of their choice and they rush back to their booths, lined along the walls, to record the trade. What you just imagined was a look into how the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) works.In the late 1700's, some men signed an agreement stating that they would buy and sell stocks among them. They started by trading only one stock but the number has since grown to over 3,000 stocks!...

    Finance Stock Charts

    The stock charts showed little financial change today, reported the Wall Street Journal, due to little change in a low borrowing rate but continued weakness in the nation's economy.

    Financial Market News Stock

    Watching the financial news about stock markets around the world can sometimes teach you just as much about history and geography as the more traditional textbooks used to impart knowledge about those subject. Particularly if you relate that financial stock market news to current affairs. For example, in 2008, when we saw a large drop in stock worth, although it was the biggest ever in terms of the volume of dollars, it did not break the Top 10 in relation to total shareholder value. On September 29, 2008, after the House said no to the government's $700 billion bank bailout plan,...

    If you want to make someone jealous, just say you have been working with the foreign stock markets. There's nothing like talking about huge returns (sometimes double or triple) to get the green-eyed monster up, running and hating your guts.

Because of these high returns, many investors are always looking for ways to work with them. Before trading in foreign stock markets, it is important to know what you are doing....

    Foreign Stock Markets Online

    With an abundance of domestic stock trading available, why would an investor even want to trade abroad? Simply put, foreign markets are popular to investors because the indexes overseas have often been in the double-to-triple return range. As proof of this, in 2005 Russia's RTS Index rose just over 70 percent in the first nine months of that year. And back in 2003, the SETI 100 went up 117 percent in Bangkok. When news of these returns hit the domestic traders, investors began searching for ways they could invest in the foreign markets as well. Before beginning,...

    Foreign Stock Markets Quotes

    Domestic investors have historically been jealous of foreign stock markets because the indexes in some countries have led to double- to triple-digit returns. In 2003, the SETI 100 in Bangkok rose over 100 percent. And in Russia, the RTS Index rose 72 percent in only nine months in 2005. As a result of these high gains, many investors would like to invest in foreign stocks. Investing in foreign stocks does take some knowledge.

    Today anyone with access to a newspaper, telephone, or the Internet can obtain a stock quote. But that's not the way it always was.

That means doing the research. Looking back over the past six months at the stocks they're interested in and noting their movements. Stocks to consider should be ones that have shown growth since mid-summer or even further back. Gold and silver, after years of being stalled, are on the...

    Historical Daily Stock Quotes

More to the point, if you've always made money in the stock market, you probably wouldn't mind that history repeating itself one bit. For other investors, the ones who haven't been 100 percent successful, learning from history can be a major help in avoiding the stock buying pitfalls that tripped them up in the past....

    Historical Stock Split Information

    Whenever a company is publically traded, they divide their company up into shares that they sell on the stock market. These shares are governed by the board of directors. In some cases the board of directors can choose to split the shares in a 2-for-1 split. When this occurs, each shareholder gets two stocks instead of one. Let's look at an example, if a company has 20 billion shares, they would have 40 billion after a 2 for 1 split. When a 2 for 1 split occurs, shareholders may experience a slight change in the value of their stocks. Because...

    History Market Stock

    When most people think of the term "stock market history," they tend to remember only the terrible stock market crash of 1929. Few are historians and many never learned the history immediately preceding that infamous event. Even though that one blip in time is akin to a tribal memory, the history of the stock market goes much further back -- to the very formation of the modern stock market exchanges. The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is the oldest and most well-known of all the American stock exchanges. The NYSE was formed in 1792 when 20 or so stockbrokers...

Because of this, Intraday Stock Data is good for traders who want to do something called backtesting their trading system.

    Investing In The Stock Market

    In order to understand the basic fundamentals of the stock market, you have to simplify. A "stock market" is simply that, a place that is either like the NYSE on Wall Street or NYSE Euronext which is electronically driven, but where stocks are traded by many different sellers. Stocks are traded "at auction" and prices are determined by supply and demand. So if demand goes up, the prices go up and if the demand slumps, so will the prices. So what, exactly, are stocks? A share of stock is the smallest piece of ownership in a company which means that...

There are currently a lot of relatively bargain-priced choices, so it's a good time to try investing on your own. Decide how much you are going to risk and accept on faith that you don't want to put all your money into one stock....

    PEG Ratios

    Investing can sure seem confusing when you first get started. One reason is because there are so many different ratios out there to understand. But if you're simply trying to figure out if a stock is "cheap", I typically throw most of the other ratios to the side and use the PEG ratio. The PEG ratio is the price-to-earnings-to-growth ratio. This ratio is a lot like the P/E ratio which divides the earnings from the price. But the PEG does more than just that; it also accounts for the growth rate. By taking the growth rate into consideration, it tells you...

One obtains a company's PE ratio by dividing the stock's price by its earnings per share.    Let's look at the PE ratio of some companies and analyze what its value means. Yahoo!, a well known Internet company, has a PE ratio of 1760. By traditional market standards, this value is astronomically high. In...

    Real Time Quotes Stock

    While real-time stock quotes have been available online since approximately 1998, they haven't always been available free. In the early days, one could pay anywhere from ten to 100 bucks a month for real-time stock quotes, but it was pretty much a "buyer, beware" situation. Some sites just trawled other sites for their stock info (making it de facto old news) and others, that were charging a premium, were merely passing on the fees charged them by the NYSE. After all, $100,000 per month is a pretty hefty amount to provide everyone with a ticket to ride. Thankfully, we have...

    Small Cap Stocks

    A company with a market capitalization near the low end of those publicly traded -- calculated by taking a firm's current share price and multiplying that figure by the total number of shares outstanding - is termed small-cap. Small-cap firms possess market values larger than micro-cap companies, but smaller than those in the mid-cap range. Small-cap stocks are often cited as good investments due to their low valuations and potential to grow into big-cap stocks, but not all small-cap companies have low stock prices. Stock prices by themselves reveal little about the size of a company, which is why market...

    Software For Stock Market

    Sports Stock Market

    Just over a year ago, OneSeason opened, a stock market for the Sports Enthusiast. "Here's an ironically appropriate Web startup for today's calamitous economic times," said Brad Stone of the New York Times. His skepticism was not unfounded. "OneSeason.com is introducing a day-trading site for sports fans - a Web stock market which allows people to invest real money to own "shares" of their favorite sports players, teams and leagues," Stone summarized in his article. "The word "shares" is in quotes because the shares on OneSeason are, ultimately, meaningless-- only illusory slices of players like Eli Manning or Lebron James, which...

    Sticky Stock Charts

    Sticky stock charts involve PhD. fortune-tellers, witch lights, Swarovski crystal balls, a dozen mad master mathematicians, and a fantastic sense of the absurd. As one might expect of a peculiarity in the American market not observed until after the crash of 1987. According to Wikipedia, "the volatility smile is a long-observed pattern in which at-the-money options tend to have lower implied volatilities than in- or out-of-the-money options. The pattern displays different characteristics for different markets and results from the probability of extreme moves. Equity options traded in American markets did not show a volatility smile before the Crash of...

    Stock Dividend Screener

    If you're a cautious investor, the kind of person who likes conservative companies which pay cash dividends more than those which make pie-in-the-sky promises, you've probably wished for a screener specifically designed to scan the market and red flag stocks meeting your personal definition of a low-risk, dividend-paying stock. You can easily make your own custom dividend stock screener using the free screener application available at Finiz.com.

    Stock Futures Quote

    A Single Stock Future is a futures contract with the underlying asset being of one particular stock, usually in batches of 100. No share rights or dividend transactions take place during purchase. Acting exactly like a futures contract, a Single Stock Future gives investors increased leverage capabilities within the market. Unlike most options, these products can be traded on margin. They are not subject to the limitations of short selling that stocks are. Single Stock Futures are traded in a number of financial markets in the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, South Africa and India, among others. At present,...

    Stock Futures Quotes

    Stock futures may relate to single-stock futures or stock indices futures. In either case, the investor, or buyer, is indulging in pure speculation, and here's why. Stock futures trading concerns a sale, at a future pre-determined date, of financial instruments that may or may not have risen in value by said date. It's a pure bet. For the seller (trader) in this transaction, contracting to sell these stock futures hedges the bet he originally made. He's assuming the risk that these stock futures won't rise above the price he and the buyer have agreed upon. Stock futures contracts are pretty much standardized...

    Stock Market Broker

    A stockbroker is a licensed investor or trader who either works for a firm or on their own but can invest in the stock market for individual investors or corporations. Only members of the stock exchange can conduct transactions so even if you want to trade online you will still need a broker to handle your trades as individuals don't have access to the electronic markets.

    Stock Market Brokerage

Whether this is an accomplishment through an online brokerage firm or a brick and mortar brokerage firm the end result is the same.

    Stock Market Charts

    Smart investors closely track trends before making a decision about what direction they expect a stock to move in. Often the best way to follow these trends is with a chart of the share's prices that has been maintained for a reasonable period of time. The total volume of the shares traded during the day and its relation to the day's closing price is also important. Becoming a successful investor requires learning basic skills like how to properly read a stock market chart. Falling wedge shapes on a chart indicate temporary reverse in upward price rallies. Rising wedges may...

    Stock Market Competition

    What is stock market competition? Simply put, it's an organized event, with prizes awarded, that runs for a limited time (most often one month to three months). The purpose can be mixed (fundraising and educating participants in a risk-free environment) or strictly scholastic; the outcome proclaims the best investor from that competition. The competitions are generally established and sponsored by business organizations or institutions of higher learning, such as Hofstra University's school of business. In 2009, for example, a San Francisco Bay Area online business, LinkedIn.com, began a stock market competition on November 16, due to end December...

    Stock Market Direction

    The stock market is generally thought to move in only two directions: up and down. Experienced investors, brokers, and other financial professionals know these two directions aren't the only possibilities. Nor, of course, does the entire market have to move as a whole. Sometimes only an individual stock moves. Sometimes a specific type of stocks move. And then, of course, there's the Whole Market Move, which is the big headline-grabber. When the stock market falls and doesn't immediately recover, most people are aware that the financial underpinnings of the entire country are at least somewhat at risk. The longer the situation...

    Stock Market Drop

    All those fancy resorts lining the Strip and downtown Las Vegas weren't built on the income from conventioneers who went home with more money in their pockets than when they arrived. They were built on the hard luck of loser ... hard luck and an ingrained inability to accept the reality that the odds were mathematically stacked against them. The stock market, as much a form of gambling as a crooked dice game (why do you think they call buying shares of common stock "playing the market) was, until the recent advent of low cost online low, fixed-cost trading...

    Stock Market Historical

    If you are planning to start investing in stocks and bonds, you may want to look at the stock market historical performance just to see what kinds of trends will effect your investing potential. Of course you want to make money from your investment and the first question would be how much is a securities worth in price? The answer is simply how much somebody else is willing to pay for it.

    Stock Market News

    The importance of fresh, up-to-the-minute investment news cannot be overstated. And not just for investors. Too many people, particularly those who don't "play the market," are unaware such news can very much affect their earnings, ability to pay off debts, and crunch their lifestyle. Successful stock market investors know that news can be almost the same as money and can certainly be turned into money, providing it arrives in a timely manner. On the other hand, many small investors miss out on good opportunities to profit from stock market news. Many investors don't know the importance of productively tracking...

    Stock Market Newspaper

    Before the advent of the Internet, the only other way to get stock quotes besides calling your broker was the daily newspaper. Most investor success comes from understanding stock market terminology and in knowing how to interpret symbols and acronyms as they relate to the stock market. Newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal rely on quotes commonly used to indicate changes in the market. Quotes universally known include YTD% CHNG (stock price percentage change for the calendar year, 52 week HI & LO (the highest and lowest price for stock for the last 52 weeks), DIV (dividend), PE (price...

    Stock Market Nse

    The National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) is a stock exchange in Mumbai. It is the largest stock exchange in India for equities and derivatives, as far as daily turnover and number of trades go.

Though many other exchanges exist in India, NSE and the Bombay Stock Exchange are considered the most noteworthy stock exchanges. Between them, these two exchanges are accountable for...

    Stock Market Oil Prices

    Stock market oil prices fluctuate like any other long-standing stock. The only difference is the oil prices seem to steel the limelight of attention while other more damaging evidence fades into the background. Funny the way the entire system operates because as the oil prices climb higher there is sound evidence the stock market as a whole begins to quiver and slide into a gloom of downward mobility. The reason for this is not exactly the stock market itself as an institution, but the reaction of individuals who panic for reasons only they understand. The way the stock market experiences...

    Stock Market Price Chart

    While many stock charts seem clear and concise, stock market price movement charts have patterns that can be fairly complex if one doesn't understand the jargon associated with each pattern and the price movements that the charts depict. There are two main types of analysis used when either following or trying to forecast stock market prices. Technical analysis is a security analysis format used for forecasting the future trend of stock prices through the study of past market data, notably price and volume. Fundamental analysis relies on researching the financial position of the company whose stock prices you wish to...

    Stock Market Prices

    Investors look at stock market prices to determine which stocks will make them the most money in the least amount of time. It would be an investor's dream to buy up stock at $5 a share and sell it at $1000 a share in just a few months. There would be a mad dash for deals like that, if the profits were going to be even half or a quarter of that. The point of investing in the stock market is to make money. Stock market prices for shares in a company fluctuate. If the company...

    Stock Market Profit

    For most stock market investors, the name of the game is profit. That being said, even potential investors should be knowledgeable of all the trends that are made by the stock market. Once the trend is identified, it's a simple process to speculate in the market. It's easy to lose sight, however, of the fact that the stock market is all about speculations and an investor can just as easily make or lose thousands of dollars if they don't understand how to read and follow the trend. A good way to understand the trend of the stock market is by learning...

    Stock Market Quotes

    Most stock market quotes you get on the Internet are not live quotes. Most stock market quotes are about 15 to 20 minutes old. One way to get real time quotes is to sign up for a premium account with your online brokerage website. If you have a free account, you will get delayed prices, most likely. If you don't know where to go to get real time stock market quotes, it can be a little frustrating. Any online marketing website owner that publishes real time stock market quotes has to be licensed by...

    Stock Market Quotes Free

    With the stock market in a constant state of change it's easy to see why so many potential investors shy away from making a commitment. Free stock market quotes provide a way for newbies as well as veteran investors to play around with certain options and stocks before making a real time investment. Not everyone who likes to check current stock prices is an investor so it doesn't make sense for them to use a broker. The easiest way for them to stay current is by using a medium that provides free stock quotes. Most internet companies such as Google Finance...

    Stock Market Sensex

    If you are looking at stock markets, you have a lot of different choices. One of the most important ones to know about, however, is the SENSEX. This acronym stands for the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensitive Index, which has over 30 different stocks represented. They carefully pick their stocks to include large, financially sound stocks that will make you money. The SENSEX is India's oldest stock index. Its age is not the only reason why is has a special place in the heart of all stock brokers. It is also well known because it is an effective gauge of...

    Stock Markets Exchange

    As defined by Wikipedia, "A stock exchange is a mutual organization which provides "trading" facilities for stockbrokers and traders, to trade stocks and other securities. Stock exchanges also provide facilities for the issue and redemption of securities as well as other financial instruments and capital events including the payment of income and dividends. The securities traded on a stock exchange include: shares issued by companies, unit trusts, derivatives, pooled investment products and bonds. To be able to trade a security on a certain stock exchange, it has to be listed there. Usually there is a central location at least for...

    Stock Market Software

    Whether you are new to online stock trading, or if you are a seasoned trader, you should have good stock market software. The software can be downloaded from the Internet into your computer. The software is a great tool to work the stock market. Many traders are financially able to do online trading as a living. There is no guarantee that you will be able to pull enough money out of the stock market to live on, but if you consistently make good trades, you could do fairly well. If you were to ask advice from anyone...

    Stock Market System

    A stock market system often uses a brokerage firm with as few as one or as many as hundreds of employees known as brokers, whose business it is to represent clients/investors in the buying and selling (trading) of stocks. Conscientious brokers study the market thoroughly and generally specialize in a certain area of investment stocks, say, perhaps aviation or alternative energy. Brokers may have a single client or several if each investor is an active daily trader. Brokers work for fees that may be a percentage of the deals made on behalf of a client, or a set fee for...

    Stock Market Tips

    Everyone interested in the art and science of successful stock market investing should probably take a page from - or a whole book about - Warren Buffett's investment strategies. Said to be the most successful investor of all time, Buffett started an investment partnership with only $100 and has netted many billions since. His approach to investing is simple, straight-forward, and eminently doable. R. Hagstrom, a senior v.p. with a capital management firm, wrote a book around what he identified as Buffett's basic tenets of stock-market investing. According to Buffett via Hagstrom these consist of questions you must ask yourself...

    Stock Market Trading

    The thought of stock market trading can be intimidating to a beginner as no doubt, it can be intimidating, to a veteran investor as well. We are living through a global recession and stock market trading activities are slow: reflecting these trying times. There is no doubt that the economic downslide effects stock market trading. We are in a bearish market right now, and people are panicking, stock market trading is low. Companies are losing business and as we know many large industries such as the American home real estate industry and automobile...

    Stock Performance Chart

    Let's face it, knowing how a stock performed yesterday or last week provides absolutely no clue as to whether it will rise, fall or stay stagnant in the future.

Fortunately, performance charts containing historical information are readily available. igniteChart, for example, has stock charts that deliver performance information over just about any time span you'd like to specify.

    Stock quotes and news can be obtained from a variety of sources nowadays. The most common is undoubtedly the Internet, but business publications, television news, and the financial pages of daily newspapers all have their place in presenting stock quotes and news to the public. Speaking of public, did you know many public libraries are good places to access all the above-listed ways of obtaining stock market news and quotes? Most of us tend to think of the stock market as the source of only one type of news that's vital - the stock quote. But stock market news, in and...

    Stock Quotes Data

    Several thousand companies have chosen to be listed on NASDAQ, which is an all-electronic stock exchange. In order for it to work all-electronically, an elaborate system of computers must work together synchronously. This system has three separate elements: the interface, the "matching engine," and the stock quote server. The first element is the place where broker/dealers and market manufacturers access the system. The computer that connects buyers and sellers when their computer-recorded prices match is the matching engine. NASDAQ's quote server information is made up of the data coming from the matching engine when trades are actually transacted. The prices of stocks...

    Stock Quotes Rss

    Not everyone wants to have to go to a website with a login to view their stock performance information. In fact, if you went and checked every site you wanted to draw information from, you'd be online - and not otherwise productive - almost all day. That's where RSS feeds come in. Wikipedia defines RSS feeds as "a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works--such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video--in a standardized format." RSS, in case you're wondering, usually stands for "Really Simple Syndication". "An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed", or...

    Stock Quotes Web Server

    The Internet has given so many people a window onto the greater world, with a multitude of views unavailable to them prior to the Web - unless they happened to be globetrotters or lifetime scholars. A relatively recent window opening on the Web seemingly inflamed the public's desire to become active stock-market investors. Prior to, say, the mid-1970s, anyone wishing to start investing in the stock market needed to first have money they could afford to lose and secondly have or establish a relationship with a stock broker. A great number of people who could meet the first requirement didn't...

    Stock Quote Symbol

    According to Wikipedia, "A stock symbol is a short abbreviation used to uniquely identify publicly traded shares of a particular stock on a particular stock market. A stock symbol may consist of letters, numbers or a combination of both." Standard & Poors is credited with bringing a national standard to stock symbols. Prior to that companies issuing shares could have many different symbols -- one, in fact, for each of the markets where their shares were traded. It has only been within the past few years that the Securities & Exchange Commission has allowed the New York Stock Exchange's three-letter symbols...

    Stock Quote Ticker

    The first stock quote ticker was developed in the late 1800s by an employee of Western Union, the company then transmitting all stock information by telegraph. The new invention continued to use Morse Code as its internal language. Within two years Thomas Alva Edison had come up with an improved version of the stock ticker, his model using the alphabet to transmit data instead of dots and dashes. All the pertinent most-up-date information about stocks, from their symbols to their closing prices, was for many years confined to stock tickers. Unless, of course, you were standing on the floor of the...

    Stock Recommendations

    Everyone is looking for an edge in the stock market, and quite often, traders turn to stock analysts for their stock recommendations to give them that edge. Stock analysts sift through company reports and filings, talk to management, probe clients and competitors to basically do whatever they can to find out if a company is healthy and growing or sick and dwindling. Because this is incredibly challenging work, stock analysts typically only monitor one or two companies at a time. In many situations, the economic environment is sufficiently complex that decision makers are uncertain about the impact of their decisions. In today's uncertain...

    Stock Scams

    At the inception of the Internet, no one could have foreseen its power to render information. The information being rendered through the Internet is not always beneficial though. Stock scams, not particular to the Internet, are running rampant because investors...

    Stock Screener Technical Analysis

    Technical analysis of the stock market is one of the oldest devices designed to beat the market. Generally, Charles Dow, writing in the Wall St. Journal at the beginning of the 20th century, is credited with laying the foundation work for this particular approach to winning while playing the market. The Greedy Trader says, "Our technical analysis stock screener combines fundamental criteria with chart trend analysis, chart patterns recognition, support resistance line crossover, candlestick patterns, trend following and momentum technical indicators." (And if that passage doesn't scare the hell out of you, nothing will. Including swimming with Great Whites.) In the belief...

    Stock Split Information

    In keeping with the purpose of splitting the stock, whenever a business declares a stock split, its share price will decrease. However, say an existing shareholder already owned 100 shares of the company valued at $100 each and a stock split of two-for-one was announced. The shareholder's total market value for stocks held would remain the same: $10,000. The number of shares held by the shareholder would increase to 200, but they would be valued at $50 each. In this way current stock owners wind up owning more shares of stock without paying any more for it. On the other hand,...

    Stocks To Buy Now

    It is difficult for many smalltime investors to determine whether any good, safe investment opportunities exist for them at the moment. As long as we're in a recession, though, and not a depression, those investors should take a more-careful-than-ever look at the water and then make their leap if it looks clear. That means doing the research. Looking back over the past six months at the stocks they're interested in and noting their movements. Stocks to consider should be ones that have shown growth since mid-summer or even further back. Gold and silver, after years of being stalled, are on the...

    Picking Stocks You Know

    When you are a novice investor, there are a lot of things that can make investing difficult to understand. It does not help when you aren't interested in the company who you have invested all of your hard earned money. A simple way of making investing fun and profitable is to pick the companies that you deal with everyday. These are the types of companies whose products you know and use and, more importantly, trust. An example of one of these companies is McDonalds (MCD). McDonalds is a company who virtually everyone knows and/or deals with at one time in...

    Stock Ticker Info

    The first stock telegraph printing device was invented in 1867 by Mr. Edward A. Calahan of the American Telegraph Company. It was his idea that stock prices could be provided through some form of telegraphy. The name of the stock ticker derived from the distinct sound of the telegraph printing instrument. In June 1869 Thomas Alva Edison was in New York City, desperately poor and looking for work. His first successful invention was the Edison Universal Stock Printer, an improvement over the original device invented by Calahan. This machine, together with several other derivatives of the Morse telegraph, produced the $40,000...

However, all stock trading software is not created equal nor is it of the same quality or addresses the same needs. It is important to take a look at...

    Streaming Real Time Stock Quotes

    While real-time stock quotes have been available online since approximately 1998, they haven't always been available free. In the early days, one could pay anywhere from ten to 100 bucks a month for real-time stock quotes, but it was pretty much a "buyer, beware" situation. Some sites just trawled other sites for their stock info (making it de facto old news) and others, that were charging a premium, were merely passing on the fees charged them by the NYSE. After all, $100,000 per month is a pretty hefty amount to provide everyone with a ticket to ride. Thankfully, we have...

    Streaming Stock Quotes

    Streaming stock quotes can be accessed by investors in a variety of ways. For example, you may get them from literally hundreds of different websites, watch them on a dedicated "ticker" video display at your stock broker's office, see them as what is called an "onscreen crawl" on television stations devoted to finances as well as some news channels, look at them on your smart cell phone through dedicated and various applications or normal RSS feeds, or you may even have them automatically scrolling on your computer screen through push technology. For example, CNN/Money has a free streaming stock quote feature...

    Taiwan Stock Exchange

    The Taiwan Stock Exchange can be found in Taipei, Taiwan. The Taiwan Stock Exchange was established in 1961.

    Tax On Inheritance

    People call the tax on inheritance by many names--Death tax. Estate tax. Inheritance tax. Of all the taxes, opinions on its morality and constitutionality seem to be especially voluminous. Foes of the inheritance tax say it is immoral and wrong to put a financial burden on a family that recently experienced the death of a loved one. But fans insist that death taxes are good ways to get revenue for the government because the taxes apply only to those with a lot of money. In an inheritance situation, money passes from one party to another, and supporters claim this money should be...

    The biggest IPO Ever Alibaba Group

    Before 1999, the word Alibaba was just a fairy tale about a guy’s adventure with a group of 40 thieves in “One Thousand and One Nights”, but Jack Ma changed that. The English teacher from Hangzhou, China started the website as a business to business (B2B) portal to help Chinese manufactures export their products overseas. It was the perfect timing, since that was at the height of China manufacturing boom that lasted another decade afterward. Now Alibaba.com features nearly a billion products and is one of the most visited website in the world, and that’s not all, folks. In...

    The Stock Market Crash 1929

    "The 1920's were a time of peace and great prosperity," starts stock-market-crash.net, like a typical horror story. "After World War I, the "Roaring Twenties" was fueled by increased industrialization and new technologies, such as the radio and the automobile. Air flight was also becoming widespread, as well. The economy benefited greatly from the new life changing technologies." "As the Dow Jones Industrial Average soared, many investors quickly snapped up shares." Do you feel the tension mounting yet? "Stocks were seen as extremely safe by most economists, due to the powerful economic boom. Investors soon purchased stock on margin. Margin is the...

    The Stock Market Crashes

    Nearly everyone these days is concerned with two vital questions; i.e. how severe will the U.S. economic downturn ultimately prove to be and how long will it last? For good reason there's serious concern that the downturn we're experiencing will become something worse than the largest recession of the post-World War II period - which occurred in 1982, when real per-capita GDP (Gross Domestic Product) fell by 3% and unemployment peaked at close to 11%. That "something worse" is, of course, the specter that overtook the U.S. in 1929. The nation's first real capital-P panic, if not actually a stock market...

    Today Stock Market

    Today Stock Market trends do appear awfully bleak in this bearish market but does the today stock market reflect the great crash of 1929? The today stock market has been called the second largest slump since 1929 but is that true or is it heading quickly becoming just as bad? The question on many investors' minds and the general public at large is are we heading into another great depression or are the harbingers of doom jumping the gun just a tad too soon? What can we extrapolate from the 1929 crash and...

    Top 10 Stocks

    In today's twitchy stock market some traders believe the only way they can make reliable profits is to have some short positions in their portfolio. Hedge-fund managers make enormous profits for their clients by short-selling as often as they buy long. Picking stocks for short-selling is a tricky process, though, since the stock should move against the normal trend of the market in order to produce profits. It's very difficult to truly hedge on sector bets. During downturns, many investors flee to "recession resistant" industries and firms. And while it's not necessarily a bad idea to allocate funds somewhat cautiously,...

    Tsx Stock Quotes

    The Toronto Stock Exchange is the third largest stock exchange in North America and the largest in Canada. According to a history of the TSX found on Wikipedia, "The Toronto Stock Exchange likely descended from the Association of Brokers, a group formed by Toronto businessmen on July 26, 1852. No official records of the group's transactions have survived. On October 25, 1861, twenty-four men gathered at the Masonic Hall to officially create the Toronto Stock Exchange. The exchange was formally incorporated by an act of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1878." The TSE grew constantly in volume and in shares...

    Uk Stock Market

    The Antwerp Bourse is said to be the oldest stock exchange in the world, boasting a founding date in 1460. London, however, provides the longest recorded history of all the world's stock markets, allowing us to look back over 300 years to see how that market has behaved since1700. Three indices are used in the United Kingdom. The Financial Times 30 Industrials presents the longest daily history for British stocks; however, the index includes only 30 stocks, and it is more and more less-representative of the market as a whole.

    Understanding Stock Charts

    When you read the stock pages, you will see something like this: First column, this is where they print the highs and lows that the stock has traded for over the year. You will not see yesterday's numbers here. Next column, in this column you will find the name of the company, as well as information about the type of stock it is. The third column has a jumble of letters used to identify the stock. These are the letters you will see on financial TV when the ticker tape flashes across the bottom of the screen. If you don't know the...

    Underwriting A Stock

    What is underwriting? Well, when a corporation decides that it is time to go public, issuing stock to investors, it must hire an investment banking firm to help sell the corporation's stock. Basically, what is happening is the investment banker is acting as the middle-man between the public and the corporation. Now in most cases, the underwriter will buy the stock from the corporation and sell it at a higher price to the public (this is how investment bankers make their money off underwriting). The difference between the price that the underwriter pays for the stock and the price the public...
