The stock market is where you can buy, sell, and trade stocks any business day. It's also called a stock exchange.

Stocks allow you to own a share of a public corporation. The stock price is based on the corporation's earnings. If the company does well, or even if everyone thinks the company is going to do well, the stock price goes up. Stocks also rise when the economy does well. Many companies also give a dividend payment each year to the stockholders, which provides extra value.
