What Makes Stock Prices Go Up and Down?

Amit has a strawberry farm. In peak season, when the market has ample supply, Amit’s strawberries are less in demand & are sold at a lower price.

In off-season, Amit produces strawberries in his special nursery. At that time, there is a shortage of supply in the market. So, Amit’s strawberries are more in demand & are sold at a greater price.

Just like Amit’s strawberries, stock prices are influenced by their demand & supply flows. With rising demand, stock prices go up & with falling demand, stock prices go down.
