Example text

The business cycle Economic rises and falls tend to follow well-defined cycles, with an average turn of about four to five years. This effect can be seen, indirectly, in Figure 1. First the economy does well, interest rates fall, gilts (with fixed high interest rates) rise, share prices rise and, as the effect feeds into personal pockets, house prices rise and spending increases. Taxes may even fall! Then the economy overheats, the government raises taxes, interest rates rise, personal disposable income falls, sales of goods fall, company profits fall, share prices fall and finally house prices fall (at least in real terms).

Today, virtually all trading is conducted on computer screens and telephones and the floor of the Stock Exchange is deserted. This change has meant that a market maker does not have to answer his telephone when the going gets tough. In the three days of the great market crash of October 1987, there were numerous complaints from investors that they could not get through to their brokers, nor brokers to the market makers. There is a constant struggle between the bulls, those who think share prices are too cheap and who want to buy stock, and the bears, those who think share prices are too high and who want to sell their shares.

Some overseas companies also have normal quotations on the London Stockmarket. This is usually to enable an international company to have its stock freely traded in a market other than its native one. The company can also raise money on any market on which it has a stock exchange listing. OTC stocks ‘Over-the-counter’ (OTC) stocks are traded primarily through a licensed dealer who may also be the sponsor of the stock, ie the agent who originally sold the stock. This could result in an obvious conflict of interest, since the dealer may be more interested in offloading the stock than in buying it back again.
