It asks over 200 multiple-choice questions, with answers and 11 rating scales for sharpening your trading skills. For example: Question Markets rise when

  • there are more buyers than sellers
  • buyers are more aggressive than sellers
  • sellers are afraid and demand a premium
  • more shares or contracts are bought than sold
    • I and II
    • II and III
    • II and IV
    • III and IV

Answer B. II and III. Every change in price reflects what happens in the battle between bulls and bears. Markets rise when bulls feel more strongly than bears. They rally when buyers are confident and sellers demand a premium for participating in the game that is going against them. There is a buyer and a seller behind every transaction. The number of stocks or futures bought and sold is equal by definition.
