Why are there stocks at all? Everyday in the news we hear about the stock exchange, stocks and money moving around the globe. Still, a lot of people don't have an idea why we have stock markets at all, because the topic is usually very dry. We made a short video about the basics of the stock exchanges. With robots. Robots are kewl! Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, the Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see. If you have a suggestion for future videos or feedback, drop us a line! :) We're a bunch of Information designers from munich, visit us on facebook or behance to say hi! https://www.facebook.com/Kurzgesagt https://www.behance.net/kurzgesagt How the Stock Exchange works Help us caption & translate this video! http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_panel?c=UCsXVk37bltHxD1rDPwtNM8Q&tab=2

English/Nat Investors and dealers in London were anxiously watching events on Wall Street on Tuesday afternoon as the Dow Jones index fell further. A nervous City saw shares in leading British companies bounce back once trading started in New York. The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips slipped close to the day's lowest levels when 132 (b) billion dollars was wiped off shares in a 457 points fall in the minutes before Wall Street opened at 1430 G-M-T. But within 10 minutes of U-S trading resuming the FTSE recovered and was showing a fall of 376.9 points, down to 4-thousand-471.9. London newspapers carried the story of a meltdown on stock markets on Tuesday as they suffered their most drastic crisis since 1987's Black Monday. The market braced itself for the worst as Wall Street reopened at 1430 G-M-T, following the seven per cent slide that triggered its early closing on Monday. But a nervous City saw shares in leading British companies bounce back after sliding in advance of trading opening in New York. The U-K's Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips fell by more than nine per cent in the first half hour of trading on Tuesday morning. At 1240 G-M-T the FTSE 100 had dropped by 6.69 per cent - down 324 points at 4-thousand-516 after falling more than nine per cent early in the session. Analysts cited turmoil in Hong Kong as the main trigger, although they said a meltdown was waiting to happen, with stock markets in general being overvalued. The chief executive of the London International Financial Futures Exchange explained what was happening. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There's a lot of volatility. There's a lot of price changes, which means a lot of volume. People want to hedge their positions. It's all to do with the atmosphere of uncertainty. If stock markets fall it creates an atmosphere of uncertainty. It also creates a bearish mood, a mood of pessimism. That's what is being reflected here. You see a mood of pessimism coming over bond markets, which means that the markets which relate to bond markets - the derivative markets of bond markets - are actually in a pessimistic mood, and they start falling too." SUPER CAPTION: Daniel Hodson, Chief Executive, London International Financial Futures Exchange At NatWest Stockbrokers in London workers braced themselves for the opening of the New York Stock Exchange. The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips slipped close to the day's lowest levels when 132 (b) billion dollars was wiped off shares in a 457 points fall in the minutes before Wall Street opened at 1430 G-M-T. Within 10 minutes of U-S trading resuming the FTSE recovered and was showing a fall of 376.9 points, down to 4-thousand-471.9. But the head of research at NatWest Stockbrokers said the bottom of the downturn may not yet have been reached. SOUNDBITE: (English) "When sentiment turns we do have a vicious downward spiral. What we're now waiting for is a sign that that downward spiral is petering out and the bottom has been reached, but at the moment there's not sign of it." SUPER CAPTION: Jeremy Batstone, Head of Research, NatWest Stockbrokers But while some City people chose to contemplate the ups and downs of the trading day and the risks involved, others were happy to skate on slighter thicker ice.

Floor trading is where traders or stockbrokers meet at a specific venue referred to as a trading floor or pit to buy and sell financial instruments using open outcry method to communicate with each other. More on stock trading: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=doc06-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=3b70391c913a3a0dc8e7add5852ad72a&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=stock%20trading These venues are typically stock exchanges or futures exchanges and transactions are executed by members of such an exchange using specific language or hand signals. During the 1980s and 1990s phone and electronic trading replaced physical floor trading in most exchanges around the world. As of 2007 few exchanges still have floor trading. One example is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) which still executes a small percentage of its trades on the floor. That means that the traders actually form a group around the post on the floor of the market for the specialist, someone that works for one of the NYSE member firms and handles the stock. Just like in an auction, there are shouts coming from those that want to sell and those that want to buy. The specialist facilitates in the match and centralizing the trades. On January 24, 2007, the NYSE went from being strictly an auction market to a hybrid market that encompassed both the auction method and an electronic trading method that immediately makes the trade electronically. A small group of extremely high-priced stocks isn't on this trading system and is still auctioned on the trading floor. Even though over 82 percent of the trades take place electronically, the action on the floor of the stock exchange still has its place. While electronic trading is faster and provides for anonymity, there's more opportunity to improve the price of a share if it goes to the floor. Investors maintain the right to select the method they want to use. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floor_trading On October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) dropped 508 points, a 22.6% loss in a single day, the second-biggest one-day drop the exchange had experienced. Black Monday was followed by Terrible Tuesday, a day in which the Exchange's systems did not perform well and some people had difficulty completing their trades. Subsequently, there was another major drop for the Dow on October 13, 1989; the Mini-Crash of 1989. The crash was apparently caused by a reaction to a news story of a $6.75 billion leveraged buyout deal for UAL Corporation, the parent company of United Airlines, which broke down. When the UAL deal fell through, it helped trigger the collapse of the junk bond market causing the Dow to fall 190.58 points, or 6.91 percent. Similarly, there was a panic in the financial world during the year of 1997; the Asian Financial Crisis. Like the fall of many foreign markets, the Dow suffered a 7.18% drop in value (554.26 points) on October 27, 1997, in what later became known as the 1997 Mini-Crash but from which the DJIA recovered quickly. This was the first time that the "circuit breaker" rule had operated. On January 26, 2000, an altercation during filming of the music video for "Sleep Now in the Fire", which was directed by Michael Moore, caused the doors of the exchange to be closed and the band Rage Against the Machine to be escorted from the site by security after band members attempted to gain entry into the exchange. Trading on the exchange floor, however, continued uninterrupted. In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the NYSE was closed for 4 trading sessions, one of the longest times the NYSE was closed for more than one session; only the third time since March 1933. On May 6, 2010, the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted its largest intraday percentage drop since the October 19, 1987 crash, with a 998 point loss later being called the 2010 Flash Crash (as the drop occurred in minutes before rebounding). The SEC and CFTC published a report on the event, although it did not come to a conclusion as to the cause. The regulators found no evidence that the fall was caused by erroneous ("fat finger") orders. On October 29, 2012, the stock exchange was shut down for 2 days due to Hurricane Sandy. The last time the stock exchange was closed due to weather for a full two days was on March 12 and 13 in 1888. On May 1, 2014 the stock exchange was fined $4.5 million "to settle charges it violated market rules, the Securities and Exchange Commission said Thursday." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Stock_Exchange
