the stock market ?

I would like to follow the stock market, it seems interesting, but I honestly don't know what to look for and how everything works. Like, what does it mean if the percentage of something is down or up ? Is it bad? Idk where to begin haha help me out

I've started using the guided research to learn more of the fundamentals on companies. It helps you to see what you should be looking for, and right now I'm new to that aspect.

a share is a partial ownership in the company each piece is worth the same amount. So a share price is the value of the company divided by the number of shares available. The number quoted for a company is the cost per share.
Negative obviously means the price per share is less than the last time frame (second, minute, day, week whatever) positive is the inverse. Percent change is just the percent change in the share price. Its the same as percent change in anything.
