Stock Market - Dramatic Decline of Stock Prices

By: Ranju Kumar

Stock Market refers to the equities where actually stocks and derivatives are traded. In USA, stock market is in New York City. Also in Hong Kong, Hamburg, London, Paris, Canada and others there are major markets that influence each other and impact the world market.

On the other major stock markets the New York Stock Exchange may have the stocks listed whereas if the company is headquartered in Amsterdam they may be listed on multiple stock exchanges. On the New York Stock Exchange many foreign companies are listed. To be listed on the US Exchange there is a tremendous value for foreign companies. The exposure and knowledge of a foreign company has a face on the New York Stock Market.

China Stock Baidu is an example. From the time it was introduced on the New York Market this information and search Technology Company has grown leaps and bounds. Making a good impression to stock analysts and a review by key people to give the foreign company a boost is all it takes.

World wide integration of investors, companies and alliances that create an unparalleled dynamic is the reality of the today's market. Hence, United Nations of the financial markets has produced an unspoken accord of like minds. Creating a win-win scenario in the stock market for all of the world players is the main objective.

No matter whether the equity is traded or not any investor regardless of where he/she is located may hold a substantial stake in any given equity. With only the admission ticket anyone can join the Market which is a very large private club.

The term equity should be broadly interpreted. Manufacturing of the products and goods are involved in the equities but it can be intellectual or an entity product like insurance. Financial brokers are all traded on the various exchanges and the banks are equities. Into a corporate entity, equities, gold stocks and mining companies owned by investors may be packaged. The only limitation is that if the investor is interested in owning the commodity or trading in the futures market the Chicago Mercantile or other commodities exchanges is the investing tool.

You can't buy a commodity as a stock but one who has bonds and other commercial paper may own a bank as an equity that may trade on the commodities exchanges. You need to have a glimpse to the commodities exchange if you want a commodity like wheat, currency, corn, gold and silver.
