Read our stock market articles on finance. Below is a list of articles covering explanation of financial terms as it applies to latest stock market news.

There are various factors which make a stock price go up or down. Some are related to external factors like stock market news and stock updates, and others mostly based on the company's core business. While investing news forms one aspect which drives price movement, the fundamentals form another part. Most investors find it difficult to understand complex financial terms. We try to simplify this by providing a detailed explanation of these very esoteric terms. Our method of explanation typically covers the definition, which is followed by a detailed explanation of the term. Every explanation is supplemented with examples so that an individual seeking to understand a company better gets deep insights on these financial terms and how they apply to the firm. The three main subcategories of finance include public finance, personal finance and corporate finance. We give explanation of terms pertaining to corporate finance, as that deals with investment analysis of companies. In this category of articles, we cover topics as basic as "how to read a balance sheet" to something as complex as understanding "economic value" added for a company. Read on and increase you financial knowledge.
