The First Measured Century

Stock MarketThe market in which shares of publicly held companies are issued and traded either through exchanges or over-the-counter markets Also known as the equity market , the stock market is one of the most vital components of a free-market economy, as it provides companies with access to capital in exchange for giving investors a slice of ownership in the company. As someone new to investment, I was thinking what a dream it would be to find some of the most innovative market newcomers out there, who are just starting out and have something really amazing to offer. And, being new, they would not yet have the widespread market presence to make their stocks unaffordable. There must be responsiveness to the market and flexibility towards the meeting the customer base that they serve.

But if nothing else, I have learned from Apple that while creatively approaching the market by meeting a need/niche is vital, it is not enough. But, I think Apple may be a paradigm for what both the market and consumers are looking for in the post-recession generation – a return to good old-fashioned service ethics and values, doing the right things to promote customer loyalty. My father didn’t tell me about any other investments he had, just the one stock that he designated for me. As far as I knew, all of the eggs for my future were in that single basket. At the end of lesson one, I am fairly certain that I will probably never be a stock market guru.

The research highlighted the potential of monitoring keyword use frequency trends for predicting changes in the stock market. Treasury bonds are going up in value (yields are declining) as the bond market predicts a depression.

The simple concept was that investors who were thinking of selling certain stocks, or were concerned about their positions, they would do some research on the internet about those stocks on the weekend when the market was closed to prepare for the market opening on the next day. In the journal publication, the researchers argue that the internet search frequencies for particular words and for general mood in the market terms such as ‘debt’, was an indicator of investment sentiments and subsequent decisions. And while many on mainstreet were scared to death of the market, the insiders knew it was a rigged game.

When a large number of people start looking for information about a particular topic on a Sunday, this signifies that they are worried about what has happened the week before and are likely to sell some of their stocks when the market opens on the Monday. They looked at other indicators and found a general trend for the market to drop when investors get concerned and lose confidence. Most stock market indicators essential follow market trends and the ability to predict stock market moves in the holy grail of investment that has remain illusionary.
