5 tax breaks could end up on the chopping block
As Congress wrangles over the deficit, these popular deductions may get the ax.

The stock market lets investors participate in the financial achievements of the companies whose shares they hold. When companies are profitable, stock market investors make money through the dividends the companies pay out and by selling appreciated stocks at a profit called a capital gain. The downside is that investors can lose money if the companies whose stocks they hold lose money, the stocks' prices go down and the investor sells the stocks at a loss. Trade in stock markets means the transfer for money of a stock or security from a seller to a buyer. This requires these two parties to agree on a price. There are still a lot of things to learn when it comes to stock market. You can learn a lot when you visit my website. Just like any other website, starting my website is hard but thanks to website traffic everything went smoothly after.
