As William Feather said, ” one of the funny things about the stock market is that every time, one person buys, another sells and both think they are astute’ ‘and that’s very true. We live in a corporate world and every one wants to invest in a company so that they can get profit in return. Its not as simple as it looks and there are companies that predict stock markets and they have a lot of expertise in doing so. Stock market in simple words is the combination of buyers and sellers and their transactions. This is one of the important ways how companies make money.. The increase in the price of a share is directly proportional to its investment. Not surprisingly, this is the way how many individuals have become millionaires and also the way how many millionaires became pauper. This plays a crucial role in currency exchange.
