What would you like to do?
Its all about supply and demand. The more people who wants to buy the stock, the more the price increases. On the other hand when less people want to buy the stock, the price decreases.

The "price" of gold is based upon supply and demand, the Commitment of Traders where the shorts and longs of Commercial Hedgers (industry) battle it out with Large (banks an…d financial institutions) and Small speculators (you and me), and finally what the value is of the currency that gold is priced in (like the U.S. dollar). From the standpoint of a U.S. investor, gold could be rising in price of U.S. dollars but not be rising in Euro's. Look at the 10 year chart of the dollar vs. gold and the EURO vs. gold here: ??????????????????????????????????????? - (click "10 Years") You'll see that there is a 70% difference in the "price" of gold for each currency. Gold is up 163% vs. the EURO as I type this (5/21/09) and up almost 240% vs. the dollar the last 10 years. All currencies have been losing ground to gold the last 10 years, hence the demand by investors to hedge against this continued decline (granted the U.S. dollar did bounce some last year as the price of gold fell). Inflation, defined as the increase in the money supply, NOT an increase in price, plays a part too. As nations increase their money supply, their currencies lose purchasing power. For example, if today all the money in the world bought all the goods in the world and then you doubled all the money in the world, you haven't created more wealth. You've just inflated the money. So now it would cost twice as much to buy all the goods in the world because of the increase in the money supply. I wrote a White Paper that explains much more called "How Gold Can Secure Your Retirement Years."

It was just one of those money making websites that offer on real info on gold, but was just full of ads that they could get people to click so they could make money. Google frowns upon this big time. ---------------------------------------------- So don't add any site with ads at all !!!????? you add a site start with kit?? with a millions of ads in its homepage also you add your spam site to collect visitors emails >> this is the biggest spam way in the world.
That's not necessasarily true - depends on what you are looking at and out of which window. Stocks tend to move randomly in the short term, and there's essentially an eq…ual chance that a stock will go down or that it will go up. Over time stocks have a tendency to go up, assuming competent leadership, a thriving sector within a growing market, and a healthy, if not strong economy. Stocks can go down - and down - and even die. This is where the wise investor has the all important exit strategy to protect him/her. You need to be diversified and also consider you horizon. Given a horizon of 5 years or less, stocks can be a risky proposition. When working with longer horizons you will generally fair well as long as intelligent exit strategies are in place to keep the 'dawgs' from biting. No one can 'time' the market - predict the 'highs' & 'lows' - winning is more about 'time' in the market. Constant vigilance (are your selections/assumptions still valid), active management (out with the 'dawgs', are you having 'opportunity' losses on the stagnant, & are the 'high-flyers' still right for your portfolio), and a risk strategy (
they go up and down, because the stock can never stay in the same number for a long time, so if the stock is going up, it's doing great. but if it's going down, it doing bad
Stock prices go up and down based on the changes in investors' demand for a given corporation's stock. That demand is determined by investors' and potential investors' expecta…tions regarding the company's future profits. If potential investors expect that a corporation will make high enough profits in the future, and they want to share in those profits and are willing to pay the current market price for the stock, they will buy stock in the company. But since there are only a fixed number of shares available for sale at any given time, as more and more new investors want to acquire stock in the same company, its price will be bid up until it gets so expensive that the expected future return no longer justifies the investment required to acquire the stock. Similarly, if stockholders get information that leads them to expect that the corporation might not do as well as they originally thought (or it looks as if having stock in another company will yield a better return for them), they will try to sell their shares at the market price. But since new investors will not be willing to pay high prices for stock when there is a big risk that the company might perform poorly, and a lot of current stockholders are trying to sell their shares at the same time, the demand for the stock on the part of new investors will be low, and its price will go down.
I know its because of supply and demand
The prices go up and down depending on whether people who buy stocks think they are a good or a bad investment.... they also depend on whether anyone is actually trading… in these stocks on a given day.
Stock prices go up or down based on the Demand - Supply theory. Whenever the demand for a stock is more than its supply its prices go up Whenever the supply of a stuck is… more than its demand its prices go down
I know its because of supply and demand
Diamond prices are going down because machines can now make perfect diamonds. So yeh give it a couple of years and the prices of diamonds will drop.
It depends on the ratio of buying to selling in stocks. If more people are buying than selling most of the stocks in any index, then the index goes up. If more are being sold …than bought, then the index goes down
Because some of em are rare and some arnt!
i think the main reason of that is falling of US dollar
purchasing and owning stocks has always been a bit of a gamble, even at the best of times. as times and finances get tenser ,basic items like food and gas skyrocket- people pu…t more emphasis on the necessary instead of the risky,causing gas prices to go up.
The demand for the item is greater then the supply.Duh.
