What is an "Exchange"?

When you think of the word "Exchange", picture a place that allows people to buy and sell things. In the case of the stock market, an exchange allows you to buy and sell securities. Securities, more commonly known as stocks and bonds, are traded every day, all over the world with goal of making money. In this case, its stocks and bonds in Mel Gibson rather than precious metals or Japanese Yen.

What is "trading"?

Trading is the act of buying or selling a particular item on the Exchange. For example, if you are interested in buying Vanessa Hudgens because you think she will be the next big thing, you place a trade to buy her StarBond at a given price. However, if you hated High School Musical 3: Senior Year or you think she's overrated, you can short her StarBond, effectively allowing you to profit by any downward movement in her price. The act of trading is completed when buyers and sellers are brought together in the marketplace.

What are "Hollywood Dollars"?
