Hi how is the dow and the major stock indexes computed, how is the everyday price of the dow and major indexes computed, or come to that particular price at the end of the trading day and total value of the index
Like Wall Street, Boiler room or any movie thats realted to investing?
Im 17 years old, I have read several books about wall street and stock trading, Im very interested in getting into it I have $ 2000 on my saving account and I was playing to invest them, can anybody give me some advice on how to start? I have read that you can not open an account until you are 18, unless a parent open it for you.
I think so. Because the 30 components in the Dow has shrunk so much it will take a Miracle to get back up to $ 14,100 again
Bank of America – Was at $ 40.00 now at $ 3.00
Dow was at – $ 14,100 now at $ 7000
For a class I’m taking this semester I have to question someone with a real estate based career. I would go out, but I’m sick. Any help is appreciated.
The question is “Who do you blame for the economic crisis?” This question needs to be answered in the following survey questions.
First, rank these in order of who had the most impact on the financial downfall of our economy (u.s) -government -consumers -Realtors -lenders -wall street -secondary market
Why did you put what you did first? why did you put what you did last? For example, if you put government first, why? if you put consumers last, why?
Second question, what is your solution to the economic crisis?
Third question, How long do you think it will take to recover?
That’s all! If you could include your age and occupation that would be awesome. Thank you!
i’ll admit that im still learning about how this world works, its better for me to know what exactly this means so I have Better understanding of what is going on right now.
It was on Yahoo news since disappeared but will be on the evening news, that yet another Wall St brokerage firm, this one specializing in hedge funds has been one giant ponzi scheme and is now going broke. Of course, the guy was not arrested or his business shut down because you can do these things it appears on Wall st and it’s OK. Buyer beware etc. Add this to the multitude of schemes that precipitated the mess we’re in economically with the investment houses bundling debt into financial products they unloaded around the world and it appears that there are one set of rules for you and me and another for Washington D.C. and yet another for Wall St.
On top of this the Wall St banks have received the lion’s share of the bailout money (Berneke is an ex-Wall Streeter) with no strings atattachedhile our auto makers have had to jump through hoops and beg. Latest reports indicate that the Wall st bankers have given etthemselvesuge bonuses with this bailout money.
Has this allowance of creating their own rules and making Wall St “untouchable” been the reason that the greedy went wild, ovoversoldlenty of nothing and sent thousands into financial dedevastation
(P.S. Yahoo deleted my last qquestionlike this. Apparently questioning Wall St is a censorable topic.)
Ok, do you believe that a regular/average person who came from a lower-middle class family, made C’s in High School, went to a community college then a public university for college where they made A’s and B’s, and tried hard for those grades could out beat a person who came from a wealthy family, was nearly a genius in high school and made straight A’s, went to an Ivy League school where they made straight A’s and tried hard as well but was still extremely smart, for a job on Wall Street or at a Fortune 500 Company if they put their mind to it?
