Stock Market Updates
It is with some discomfort that I am always pointing out potential tops in the U.S. stock market indexes. But, I must call them as I read them. The S P daily chart has made ZERO upward progress in 18 months. A possible complex H S top formation is under construction. Also note the appearance of a 7-week H S top pattern. I am willing to short this smaller H S pattern if given a well-defined risk point. I will give up on a bearish interpretation of the S Ps if a new high is made – but this does not mean I would have any interest in being long in new high territory.
The Nasdaq is tracing out a possible broadening top, although as I have pointed out in recent updates, the rally from the Feb 2016 low has exceeded the normal construction of a true broadening top. Outside of the Nifty (India), the Dow Utilities (dividend play) and the Japan Mothers Index, I have a hard time finding a futures market index I am willing to own.

Definition of ‘Stock Market’
Definition: It is a place where shares of pubic listed companies are traded. The primary market is where companies float shares to the general public in an initial public offering (IPO) to raise capital.
Description: Once new securities have been sold in the primary market, they are traded in the secondary market—where one investor buys shares from another investor at the prevailing market price or at whatever price both the buyer and seller agree upon. The secondary market or the stock exchanges are regulated by the regulatory authority. In India, the secondary and primary markets are governed by the Security and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
A stock exchange facilitates stock brokers to trade company stocks and other securities. A stock may be bought or sold only if it is listed on an exchange. Thus, it is the meeting place of the stock buyers and sellers. India’s premier stock exchanges are the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange.

#stock market report
Stock Market Reporting
One of the primary tools for reporting stock market activity is the ticker tape. You’ve seen them on business programs or financial news networks: a flashing series of baffling letters, arrows and numbers scrolling along the bottom of your TV screen. (For a short history of the letters, read The Evolution Of Ticker Symbols and Wall Street History: Windows 1.0 And Ticker- Tape Parades .)
While many people simply block out the ticker tape. others use it to stay on top of market sentiment and track the activity of certain stocks. But what exactly is that cryptic script reeling by? It obviously tells us something about stocks and the markets, but how does one understand the ticker tape and use it to his or her advantage?
Firstly, a tick is any movement, up or down, however small, in the price of a security. Hence, a ticker tape automatically records each transaction that occurs on the exchange floor, including trading volume. onto a narrow strip of paper, or tape.
The first ticker tape was developed in 1867, following the advent of the telegraph machine, which allowed for information to be printed in easy-to-read scripts. During the late 19 th century, most brokers who traded at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) kept an office near it to ensure they were getting a steady supply of the tape and thus the most recent transaction figures of stocks. These latest quotes were delivered by messengers, or “pad shovers,” who ran a circuit between the trading floor and brokers’ offices. The shorter the distance between the trading floor and the brokerage, the more up-to-date the quotes were.
Ticker-tape machines introduced in 1930 and 1964 were twice as fast as their predecessors, but they still had about a 15-20 minute delay between the time of a transaction and the time it was recorded. It wasn’t until 1996 that a real-time electronic ticker was launched. It is these up-to-the-minute transaction figures – namely price and volume – that we see today on TV news shows, financial wires and websites. And while the actual tape has been done away with, it has retained the name. (See How Has The Stock Market C hanged? to learn more about the evolution of trading.)
Due to the nature of the markets, investors from all corners of the globe are trading a variety of stocks in different lots and blocks at any given time. Therefore what you see one minute on a ticker could change the next, particularly for those stocks with high trading volume, and it could be some time before you see your ticker symbol appear again with the latest trading activity.
Reading the Ticker Tape
Here’s an example of a quote shown on a typical ticker tape:
Throughout the trading day, these quotes will continually scroll across the screen of financial channels or wires, showing current, or slightly delayed, data. In most cases the ticker will quote only stocks of one exchange, but it is common to see the numbers of two exchanges scrolling across the screen.
You can tell where a stock trades by looking at the number of letters in the stock symbol. If the symbol has three letters, the stock likely trades on the NYSE or American Stock Exchange (AMEX). A four-letter symbol indicates the stock likely trades on the Nasdaq. Some Nasdaq stocks have five letters, which usually means the stock is foreign. This is designated by an ‘F’ or ‘Y’ at the end of the stock symbol. To learn more, see Why do some stock symbols have three letters while others have four?
On many tickers, colors are also used to indicate how the stock is trading. Here is the color scheme most TV networks use:
Green indicates the stock is trading higher than the previous day\’s close.
Red indicates the stock is trading lower than the previous day\’s close.
Blue or white means the stock is unchanged from the previous closing price.
Before 2001, stocks were quoted as a fraction, but with the emergence of decimalization all stocks on the NYSE and Nasdaq trade as decimals. The advantage to investors and traders is that decimalization allows investors to enter orders to the penny (as opposed to fractions like 1/16).
Which Quotes Get Priority?
There are literally millions of trades executed on more than 10,000 different stocks each and every day. As you can imagine, it’s impossible to report every single trade on the ticker tape. Quotes are selected according to several factors, including the stocks’ volume, price change, how widely they are held and if there is significant news surrounding the companies.
For example, a stock that trades 10 million shares a day will appear more times on the ticker tape than a small stock that trades 50,000 shares a day. Or if a smaller company not usually featured on the ticker has some ground-breaking news, it will likely be added to the ticker. The only times the quotes are shown in predetermined order are before the trading day starts and after it has finished. At those times, the ticker simply displays the last quote for all stocks in alphabetical order.
Constantly watching a ticker tape is not the best way to stay informed about the markets, but many believe it can provide some insight. Tick indicators are used to easily identify those stocks whose last trade was either an uptick or a downtick. This is used as an indicator of market sentiment for determining the market’s trend.
So next time you’re watching TV or surfing a website with a ticker, you’ll understand what all those numbers and symbols scrolling across your screen really mean. Just remember that it can be near impossible to see the exact price and volume at the precise moment it is being traded. Think of a ticker tape as providing you with a general picture of a stock’s “current” activity.
Stock tables are another source of stock market reporting. Open any financial paper and you will see stock quotes that look something like the image below. In this section, we’ll explain how to make sense of these tables so that you can use the information to your advantage.
Let’s take a look at the stock/quotes table:
Columns 1 2: 52-Week High and Low. These are the highest and lowest prices at which a stock has traded over the past 52 weeks (one year). This typically does not include the previous day’s trading.
Column 3: Company Name and Type of Stock. This column lists the name of the company. If there are no special symbols or letters following the name, it is common stoc k. Different symbols imply different classes of shares. For example, “pf” means the shares are preferred stock.
Column 4: Ticker Symbol. This is the unique alphabetic name which identifies the stock. If you watch financial TV, the ticker tape will quote the latest prices alongside this symbol. If you are looking for stock quotes online, you always search for a company by the ticker symbol. If you don’t know a particular company’s ticker symbol, you can search for it at sites like Investopedia.
Column 5: Dividend Per Share. This indicates the annual dividend payment per share. If this space is blank, the company does not currently pay out dividends.
Column 6: Dividend Yield . This is the percentage return on the dividend. Dividend yield is calculated as annual dividends per share divided by price per share.
Column 7: Price/Earnings Ratio (P/E ratio). This is calculated by dividing the current stock price by earnings per share from the last four quarters. (For more on how to interpret this, see Understand The P/E Ratio .)
Column 8: Trading Volume . This figure shows the total number of shares traded for the day, listed in hundreds. To get the actual number traded, add two zeros to the end of the number listed.
Column 9 10: Day High and Low. This indicates the price range in which the stock has traded throughout the day. In other words, these are the maximum and the minimum prices that people have paid for the stock.
Column 11: Close. The close is the last trading price recorded when the market closed on the day. If the closing price is more than 5% above or below the previous day’s close, the entire listing for that stock is bold-faced. Keep in mind, you are not guaranteed to get this price if you buy the stock the next day because the price is constantly changing, even after the exchange is closed for the day. The close is merely an indicator of past performance and, except in extreme circumstances, it serves as a ballpark of what you should expect to pay.
Column 12: Net Change. This is the dollar value change in the stock price from the previous day’s closing price. When you hear about a stock being “up for the day,” it means the net change was positive.
Quotes on the Internet
Nowadays, it’s far more convenient for most people to get stock quotes off the internet. This method is superior because most sites update throughout the day and give you more information, news, charting and research.

In this section, we discuss the practical matter of going about buying and selling shares of stock. Individuals typically buy and sell shares by using a licensed brokerage firm or broker who makes the actual trade. Historically, stockbrokers were hired only by wealthy individuals and families, but today a wide range of brokerages exist for all price ranges. So-called “full-service” brokers offer a suite of research, opinion, and expert advice and can offer a personal relationship between the broker and the client. For more budget conscious clients, discount brokerages exist that offer a much more bare-bones service offering, in some cases simply executing purchases and sales. Over the past two decades, electronic trading has grown significantly, with many online brokerages offering both research and opinion as well as trades at low prices, some asking as little as $5 or less per trade in commission. (See also: Picking Your First Broker.)
Regardless of the type of brokerage used, the mechanics of buying or selling shares is fairly uniform. First, a stock quote is obtained. In the early days of stock exchanges, price information was transmitted via tickertape – a long ribbon of paper that printed basic data via telegraph wire. That is why today we still refer to stock quotes as the ticker.
A stock quote carries a lot of information including the current bid and offer (sometimes called the ask) prices as well as the last price that traded. The bid is the highest price that somebody in the market is willing to pay at a given time, while the offer is the lowest price that somebody is willing to sell. If you are interested in buying shares, you will make a bid, and if you want to sell an offer. When the price of a bid and offer coincide, a trade is effected.
In addition to this price information, data on trading volume (number of shares traded) is often included. Stock quotes obtained online are often real-time quotes that confer second-by-second details, and online quotes also often include charts and interactive tools. Stocks are quoted by their ticker symbol, represented by between one and four capital letters, which are often loosely representative of the company name. For example the ticker symbol for Microsoft Corp. is MSFT, Caterpillar Inc. is CAT, and Apple Inc. is AAPL.
Market Orders and Limit Orders
Next, the type of trade has to be determined. A market order is simply an order that instructs the broker (or online trading platform) to buy or sell shares at the best available price. If you wanted to buy 100 shares of AAPL at market, and the quote shows: Bid: $139.80 (100), Offer: $140.00 (50), Last: $139.95 (250). This tells us that the last trade was 250 shares at $139.50 and it indicates 50 shares are offered at $140.00. Suppose another 200 are offered at $140.05. Your market order would buy the 50 shares at $140.00 and then purchase 50 more at the next best price at $140.05.
A market order does not guarantee the price you will get, but it does guarantee that you will get the number of shares that you want, in this case 100. When an order is completed, it is said to be filled. A market order is most often used in cases where the buyer or seller is most concerned with filling the size of the order and not concerned with the price. A limit order specifies the price at which you want to trade. For example, you may specify that you want to buy AAPL for $140.00 but no more, in which case you would buy the 50 shares offered at $140.00 and then wait for some other seller to come down to your price. Until that happens, the new quote would be Bid: $140.00 (50), Offer: $140.05 (200), Last: $140.00 (50).
A limit order can also be designated all-or-none (AON), meaning that you won’t agree to buy your shares unless you can get all 100 that you want. If the original limit order in this example were AON, you would not buy the 50 that are offered until another 50 came along. Limit orders are used by those who are primarily concerned with the price they want to receive, but they are not guaranteed that the size of their order will be filled. Price versus getting filled on the size of your order are the primary trade-offs between market and limit orders.
Stop orders are contingent on a certain price level being attained to activate the trade. With a stop order, your trade will be executed only when the security you want to buy or sell reaches a particular price (the stop price). Once the stock has reached this price, a stop order essentially becomes a market order and is filled. For instance, if you own stock ABC, which currently trades at $20, and you place a stop order to sell it at $15, your order will only be filled once stock ABC drops below $15. Also known as a stop-loss order, this allows you to limit your losses.
This type of order can also be used to guarantee profits. For example, assume that you bought stock XYZ at $10 per share and now the stock is trading at $20 per share. Placing a stop order at $15 will guarantee profits of approximately $5 per share, depending on how quickly the market order can be filled. Stop orders are particularly advantageous to investors who are unable to monitor their stocks for a period of time, and brokerages may even set these stop orders for no charge.
One disadvantage of the stop order is that the order is not guaranteed to be filled at the preferred price the investor states. Once the stop order has been triggered, it turns into a market order, which is filled at the best possible price. This price may be lower than the price specified by the stop order. Moreover, investors must be conscientious about where they set a stop order. It may be unfavorable if it is activated by a short-term fluctuation in the stock’s price. For example, if stock ABC is relatively volatile and fluctuates by 15% on a weekly basis, a stop-loss set at 10% below the current price may result in the order being triggered at an inopportune or premature time.
Other Kinds of Orders
Orders may also be tagged with instructions regarding how long an order is good for. An immediate-or-cancel (IOC) order is cancelled if the order isn’t executed right away. This is typically used in conjunction with a limit order. When an IOC order is combined with an AON order, it is designated fill-or-kill (FOK). A day order is a limit or stop order that is cancelled at the end of the trading day, and will not be active the next morning. A good-til-canceled (GTC) order is active until the instruction is given to cancel it, and may remain active for many days at a time or longer.
Margin Trading and Short Selling
In addition to the mechanics described above, many brokerages offer margin trading, allowing their customers to borrow money to buy shares in excess of the amount of cash in their account. Margin also allows for short selling, which is where a market participant borrows shares they do not own in order to sell them with the hope of buying them back in the future at a lower price. A short seller is betting that the price of a stock will go down, rather than up.
In addition to using a brokerage, there are two less common ways to own shares: dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs) and direct investment plans (DIPs). DIPs are plans by which individual companies, for a minimal cost, allow shareholders to purchase stock directly from the company. DRIPs are where the dividends paid by shares are automatically used to purchase more of those shares (including fractions of a share).

Ahead of Wall Street
Friday September 2, 2016
(This is Brian Hamilton filling in for Mark Vickery while he is on vacation)
Stock futures inched forward today, as all eyes will be on this morning s unemployment rate, and nonfarm payrolls data. The unemployment rate is expected to drop to 4.8% from 4.9%, and is seen as the last major hurdle for the Feds before they decide to raise rates or not during their September meeting.
Oil prices shot up overnight as Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he would like for Russia and OPEC to make a deal regarding a production cap. President Putin went on to say that he would likely support a plan to crimp production at the G20 summit in China next week. Lastly, Putin said that Russia is prepared to sell a 19.5% stake in Rosneft PJSC, the country s largest listed oil producer, as early as the end of 2016.
In Europe, producer prices in the euro region rose by +0.1%, the lowest monthly reading since April. Also, the European Union started their two day meetings today; the major issues being discussed are the fallout from the Brexit, and global banks attempting to preserve their access to the single market.
