Reason Stocks Change, and Stocks

The price of stocks change because of market forces, or supply and demand. When more people wish to buy a stock, the cost goes up because the demand is higher and the supply is lower proportionally. This can be flipped around. When more people want to sell a stock the demand is lower proportionally and the cost goes down because less people want it.

Dow: 10,249.54, +225.5210, +2.25%
Nasdaq: 2,281.07, +58.742, +2.64%
S&P 500: 1,098.38, +27.671, +2.58%
