How does the stock market work?

Report as

Basically the stock market works in the sense that you can buy and even sell shares in a company. When a company makes its shares available for the public to buy they are referred to as stocks and this is what you are trading. In most cases what you get when you purchase a stock is a very small portion of the company. Read more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stock_market.
