Given: Toni purchased 15,000 shares of stock of Target Corporation at $54.88 per share. So, the value of trade was$823,200
Her trade appeared on the stock ticker as [email protected]▼0.17.
To find The difference in the value of trade if the trading was done at the previous day’s closing price.
Solution: We will first find the value of the previous day’s closing price from the ticker.Then we will find the value of trade at that price and check the difference.
We will first find the previous day’s closing price
Previous day’s closing price=54.88+0.17
=$55.05
If Toni had purchased the shares at the previous day’s closing price, then
Value of trade= Number of shares× Price per share
=15,000×55.05
=$825,750
Toni has purchased shares at present for$823,200, so if the purchase was done at the previous day’s closing the difference would be$2550(825,750−823,200)
Toni purchased15,000 shares of stock of Target Corporation at$54.88 per share i.e for$823,200
If she purchased those shares at the previous day’s closing of $55.05, the trading price would be$825,750 and the difference between this trade and the original trade would be$2,550

Given: Let,H=day’s High, L=day’s Low, C=day’s close, V=day’s volume
To find A formula that can be used to determine the day’s money flow.
Solution: Day’s money flow=Day′s high+Day′s Low+Day′s Close/3×Day′s Volume
=H+L+C/3×V
Let H represent a day’s High, L represent a day’s Low, C represent a day’s close, and V represent the day’s volume.
Then, day’s money flow=H+L+C/3×V

To find; How might a large trade “move the market”? How might those words apply to what you have learned?
Here the author wants to convey that Large trades involve bigger purchases, usually by institutions.
They have a major effect on the market The number of shares traded in a single day can be greater than the number of a company’s outstanding shares, but this is relatively rareLongerterm traders, on the other hand, are buying or selling off of the news, which also contributes to the increased stock activity.
The day traders or shortterm investors provide the liquidity required to trade more shares than the actual shares outstanding.
Hence we conclude that Large trades involve bigger purchases, usually by institutions. They have a major effect on the market

Given: The ticker for all four stocks are:
[email protected]▲1.13
[email protected]▼0.78
[email protected]▲2.27
[email protected]▼1.58
To find: The previous day’s closing price for each stock

Page 34 Exercise 13 Answer
Given: 36,000 shares of ABC at a price of 37.15 which is $0.72 higher than the previous day’s close.
To find: Write the ticker symbols for each situation. We will try to find the change in the price with the relative days.
Since we know that the price increases with the previous day. So, we can write▲0.72.
Also, the price can be written as
36,000/1000
=36K.
Hence, we can write the ticker symbols as [email protected]▲0.72.
Thus, we can write the ticker symbols as [email protected]▲0.72.

Given: 1,240 shares of XYZ at a price of $9.17, which is $1.01 lower than the previous day’s close.
To find: Write the ticker symbols for each situation. We will try to find the change in the price with the relative days.
Since we know that the price decreases with the previous day. So, we can write▼1.01. Also, the price can be written as 1240/1000=1.24K.
Hence, we can write the ticker symbols as [email protected]▼1.01.
Thus, we can write the ticker symbols as [email protected]▼1.01.
Page 34 Exercise 15 Answer
Given: Maria is a stock broker and has been following transactions for Ford Motor Co.
To find: Write the stock ticker symbols that would appear on the scroll for the last trade of the day on Wednesday for Ford.
We will try to find the change in the price with the relative days.
Since, the price on previous day can be written as 5600/1000=5.6K.
As, we know that the last trade of the day was $0.56 higher than Tuesday’s close, which gives us the present value as8.11+0.56=$8.67.
Thus, we can write the ticker symbols as [email protected]▲0.56.
Page 34 Exercise 16 Answer
Given: Dorothy purchased x thousand shares of Macy’s Inc (M) at y dollars per share.
To find: Express the ticket symbols algebraically.
We will try to find the change in the price with the relative days.
Since the price on current day can be written as$y.Also, we can write the shares price as x⋅1000/1000=x K.
So, the decrease in price will be z.Thus, we can say that the ticket symbols algebraically will be MxK@y▼z.
Page 34 Exercise 17 Answer
Given:
To find: Do numbers reflect a positive or negative money flow?
We will multiply the volume to get the net flow.
On the very first day, we get average as(27.90+26.85+27.75)/3=27.5and
for the second day, we get average as (27.95+27.40+27.66)/3=27.67.
So, for the first day we get the net flow as 79,670,500×27.5=2,190,938,750 and for the second day, we get the net flow as 53,299,800×27.67=1,474,805,466.
Thus, we can say that there will be negative money flow of May−16 for
Page 34 Exercise 18 Answer
Given:
To find: Do numbers reflect a positive or negative money flow.
We will multiply the volume to get the net flow.
On the very first day, we get average as (582.95+575.60+581)/3=579.85
And for the second day, we get average as(584.68+578.32+580)/3=581
So, for the first day we get the net flow as4,342,700×579.85=2,518,114,595
And for the second day, we get the net flow as4,974,100×581=2,889,952,100.
Thus, we can say that there will be positive money flow of June 7 for
