Tell me: How does the stock market work?

If you are new to the stock market, it may sometimes be hard to understand how the stock market works. Luckily, the New York Stock Exchange made a cartoon about it in 1952. Some parts have changed today, and some are the same. For example, in 2012 we have robots using High Frequency Trading - who roams the market and are trading stocks in under a second. In 1952, the stock market was more about the fundamental values of the companies.
