In the stock market we use ticker symbols to uniquely identify publicly traded shares of a particular share. It can be letters, numbers or both. In the stock market a mutual fund is an investment programme funded by shareholders that trade in varied holdings and is professionally managed. Supply and demand is the amount of a commodity, product, or service available and the desire of buyers for it, considered as factors regulating its price.Supply and demand affects the the stock market because when demand for the stock increases so does the price. One of the pros of investing in the stock market is that you can receive a lot of money if the company gets profit, but you can also lose all your money if the company goes bust.
Review: In my Stock Market Portfolio my best company is Lockheed Martin so far I have not seen it drop into negative. The worst companies I invested in were Samsung, Royal Dutch Shell and Starbucks which have never been positive. The reason the Royal Dutch Shell was always in the negative was because of their price for petrol, for Samsung it was the Note 7 which kept on exploding which caused all of them to be returned. I purchased and sold depending on whether my Stocks profit was negative or positive, I also sold them depending on whether they were expected to go up or go down for example once the Note 7’s all had to be returned I knew I had to trade my Samsung Stock. As I continue to update my portfolio, I know I will definitely keep Lockheed Martin which has never failed me, I will also keep GEO which has been positive for several weeks. I would also invest in Walmart and Target since Christmas sails are coming up.
