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.
