The stock market is... an indicator of people's moods and levels of optimism about the growth potential of stocks. Study charts, news. Change in management, new hot products, earnings...affect prices. Stock prices usually drop after a fast run up. Stocks going up usually keep going up. Stocks going down usually keep going down. Buy on the up trend. Be aware of exceptions to all rules. Stick with facts (charts) and news (changes), not opinions.
