Why does the stock market rise? Why does it crash? Why does it recover?
To answer these questions, we need a deep, tree-trunk understanding – a core, fundamental understanding – of how the stock market operates.
What, exactly, IS a stock – and how are stocks valued? What’s the difference between the Dow Jones, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq? Why is the market a voting machine in the short-term, but a weighing machine in the long-term?
Brian Feroldi, the author of “Why Does the Stock Market Go Up?,” joins us for a Stocks 101 explainer episode.
If you’d like a deeper understanding of the world of stocks, you’ll enjoy this explainer episode.
And if you have a friend/spouse/coworker who’s said, “I need to learn more about investing,” share this episode with them.
