There are several factors that influence the stock market. The first thing that has the greatest effect on the stock market is the popularity of the company. A company is not going to have a very high price on their stock if they aren’t known or their service isn’t used very much. The way that someone can tell if a certain product is very popular and used by a lot of people is if the price of an individual share of their stock is at a high price, and if their shares continue to go up in price. Another thing that influences the stock market is the relationships that people have with each other. Peoples relationships can be a very detrimental thing to the stock market, because relationships can change very quickly. With business partners, relationships are even harder to maintain because you are seeing your business partner or partners every day and sometimes you have to be the bad guy in order to get things done. If you had a personality where you liked to get things done ahead of time, and your partner had a personality where they liked to get things done at the last minute, the relationship that you had with that person will be gone very quickly. The final factor that influences the stock market comes down to peoples personal opinions. Even though some companies might have the newest technology that entices a lot of people. There is always going to be a group of people that prefers the older technology over the newer technology because they are use to the older technology.
