Take example of a business that needs funds to grow and hire people. In such case they create a document called shares that helps people get portion of profit from the company at the exchange of money added. This is called as stock that is made from the shares. So stock market is formed to make marketplace of such shares. That is pretty much the concept behind the shares and stocks. I hope now you know the concept of the shares and stocks. :)

@mkrnex That strategy would be timing the market and it doesn't work. there are some shares which are not down even after market fall. some are down and will continue to fall down. some people get panic and sell their loss shares so it's their way of saving further loss.

You can observe share market online.Do the trading on the paper.You can buy a share at lower price and sell at higher price and make a profit.You also can make short sell also.Sell a share at a price and then buy at lower price and make aprofit.

That is the case of retail investors like u and me. Most of retail investors follow TV channels and their fellow traders and act. Markets always move UP and DOWN because of various reasons, Most of the times, markets will all based on bad news which will be there for short time, Mean time, people get panic and sell their positions in losses. But with in no time, They see the shares that were sold at the lower levels will raise upon dilution of the news. Then they feel sad.
