The stock market of 2015 was full of optimism and was heavily invested in with a sense of positivism as the stock market demonstrated strength. The stock market of 2015 for the first half looked optimistic until August when the 2015 stock market experienced a mini-crash between August and April that led to uncertainty among investors for the 2016 new year. The new year of 2016 demonstrates similar characteristics to 2015. Though the stock market looks strong and is increasing, investors foresee a similar outcome that is similar to the mini-crash of the 2015 stock market.
Though many industries increased in stock market value, companies such as American Express fell behind by 12 percent. With the overall uncertainty among investors decreasing,it is foreseen that the though the economy is weak as of currently, it will get better which is demonstrated by this past week. In summary, for every stock that declined in value, nine stocks advanced within the New York Stock Exchange. Overall the high-frequency trading accounted for 49 percent of the trading volume that occurred in January. This compares to the 2009 trading volume that accounted for around 61 percent of average daily shares.
