Is this stock trading or mutual fund?Dont understand.?2julee2017-10-06 18:23:10
My mother is a real estate broker for an extremely large brokerage company. It's actually the 4th largest in the World. She told me that just like Microsoft along time ago, her company is getting ready to sell within 2 years because the CEO and Founder is retiring. She said that they are offering 1000 Free shares to all the employees, and any friends and families of employees who become members free shares also before going PUBLIC WITH THIS. And they predict it will be worth atleast $20-$30 a share. SHE wants ME to sign up as a member so I will get 1000 free shares, because if I sign up as a member under her, she will get an extra free 1000 shares on top of the 1000 free shares shes already getting. Now my mom has sign up my dad, and 22 others people already. I heard mutual funds are better than stock trading. Which one is this? Should I sign up? I have by tonight to sign anyone I know up under me,so please tell me asap.
I don't understand stock market / trading terms - can you help me figure this out?0Anonymousss2012-10-26 05:22:18
I have 19 years and still do not. I suppose I should , but I do and it's just annoying to hear about it all the time and do not know what it means. All I know about the stock market is that the actions ( the lowest you can own a company ) are traded in the market and that companies have market symbols to SBUX Starbucks . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus SBUX put on Google and I get this ... MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 28.39 -0.10 ? ( -0.35% ? ) (October 25, 4:00 pm ET ) MedlinePlus 28.69 ? 0.30 ? (1.06 % ? ) ( After Hours ) MedlinePlus Open: 28.55 MedlinePlus Height: 28.80 MedlinePlus Low : 27.02 MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Volume: 5,699,279 MedlinePlus Avg Vol : 7,218,000 MedlinePlus Mkt Cap : 21.01B MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I'm basically hoping someone can explain what it all means . 28.39 Does that Starbucks shares trading $ 28.39 when the market closed , but then more trade when closed ? Actually I have no idea what any of those possibilities .

Would the stock market be more stable if trading were left to the professionals and day traders eliminated?0nada2012-09-22 03:22:02
It seems to me that from day traders ( those entitled to trade daily through the network without professional advice ) and trade in the hands of professionals who really understand and have been trained and educated in the market , the actions worldwide and in America would be more stable . ie Hurricane Katrina : gas prices nearly doubled in the United States. But America has most of its oil and gas from Canada , South America and the Middle East and we have reservations in Utah , Arizona , Texas and Alaska. There was no other reason than greed and speculation that prices will rise .
