Arends, Brett. Wall Street Journal (Online); New York, N.Y. [New York, N.Y]21 June 2014: n/a.
Surging Stock Market
A surging stock market is one where the prices of various securities and investments increase rapidly. There are several reasons that can be used to explain why the stock market may surge from time to time. They include increased political stability, economic progress, and great government policies that enhance the position of markets and industries within the economy. In such a market, it is imperative that investors are cautious to ensure that they do not buy stock that may later be devalued or purchase stock that may not bring the desired returns (Rosenbaum, 2018). There are several steps that can be used by shrewd investors to ensure that their investments are protected at all times. These steps ensure that an investor is not exposed to too much risk that would later affect their holding in different companies.
