stock market terms

It's official – investors have borrowed more cash than ever to buy stocks…   We're talking nearly $600 billion borrowed "on margin" – when you add up the margin debt on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq stock markets.   It's more money than investors borrowed at the peak of the dot-com boom in 2000. And more money than the 2007 peak just before the global financial crisis.   That sounds scary, right?   Many "experts" who are looking for a reason for the market to go down might point to it as a sign of the top. But is it something to worry about? Let's take a look…   This chart shows the NYSE's margin debt versus the S&P 500 Index. You can see that we're now at an all-time high… above previous highs when stocks peaked in 2000 and 2007.
