Anyone who has kids knows that one of their favorite things to ask is "Why?" Investors in the stock market ask the same question, but not only is it the wrong question to ask, but there is no answer to it. If you want to be a more successful investor, learn to ask "what" instead.
There was a time in this great land where if you wanted to be a savvy investor you had to stay up on the events of the stock market by watching financial new shows.
