The price of a stock is decided by the number of buyers and sellers. The goal of the stock's price is to create a market in which the number of buyers is equal to the number of sellers.
"If more people want to buy a stock (demand) than sell it (supply), then the price moves up. Conversely, if more people wanted to sell a stock than buy it, there would be greater supply than demand, and the price would fall"
From what i understand, this is all done electronically
