The stock market is where stockholders and stock brokers can witness the increase and decrease of the share value of their purchased stocks. If a stock is increasing its value, then it means that the corporation is performing well in the economy. On the other hand, if the value of the stocks of a certain company is decreasing, then the share of the company is not doing well thus purchasing shares from the said company is a bad idea since the value of the corporate stocks are shrinking in value. Selling the stock that has an increased value is the common action of an ordinary stock holder but in a stock broker's point of view, this opportunity will give them much more income from the corporate stocks that they purchased. Some stock brokers would risk for another few days waiting for the stocks to increase its value and then sell them back to the company or to stockholders.
