Understanding the stock market
The stock market is a marketplace where publicly traded stocks are bought and sold. It is a collection of exchanges where stocks of publicly held companies are issued and traded. The stock market serves as a barometer of a country’s economic health and is an indicator of the performance of individual companies. Companies can use the stock market to raise capital by issuing and selling stocks to the public. Investors can purchase stocks as a way to invest in the growth potential of individual companies or to gain exposure to the overall stock market through index funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The stock market can also be influenced by a variety of economic, political, and social factors, making it a dynamic and ever-changing environment.
