THE TRADING MACHINE DEMYSTIFIED

Nearly all countries participate in a global stock exchange that allows for both local and international companies to be traded. The number of traded companies varies, usually proportionately to the size of the country, but can vary from a couple hundred to as many as a couple thousand. The stock market status can fluctuate at any given time, but here are some current statistics regarding the global stock market.

  • The global market capitalization has exceeded $80 trillion — a 320 percent increase from $25 trillion in 2009.
  • Analysts at Goldman Sachs predict that the global market cap will continue heading towards $100 trillion.
  • 2017 marked the first time in history that a calendar year passed without a monthly decline in an all-country index
