LEVERAGE: The use of credit or loans to enhance speculation in the financial markets. Suppose, for example, that you take the $1,000 in your bank account to your stock broker and purchase $1,000 worth of stocks, bonds, or whatever. A leveraged purchase would let you use your $1,000 to buy, let's say, $10,000 worth of stocks or bonds. The remaining $9,000 of the purchase price comes from a loan.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SECURITIES DEALERS: A stock market in which corporate stocks are exchanged by dealers across the country using a computerized system of stock price quotes. This is often referred to as the "over-the-counter" stock market, because, unlike the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, and others, the dealers don't conduct their business at a single location. They match up their buy and sell orders through a computer network rather than through the face-to-face contact. Transactions conducted by the NASD give rise to one of the more commonly publicized stock market price indicators, the NASDAQ (which stands for National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation). The widely used NASDAQ composite index is based on the prices of 5,000 of these over-the-counter stocks.

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

A branch of the Department of Treasury that is responsible for collecting federal income taxes and administering the Internal Revenue Code. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the office of the U.S. government that collects the tax revenue needed to purchase goods, pay administrative expenses, and finance assorted government functions. The IRS was established during the Civil War in 1862, but underwent a major overhaul in 1913 when the 16th amendment to the U.S. Constitution gave it the power to collect income taxes.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for the new strip mall out on the highway hoping to buy either a how-to book on home remodeling or a tall storage cabinet with five shelves and a secure lock. Be on the lookout for fairy dust that tastes like salt.

This isn't me! What am I?

The New York Stock Exchange was established by a group of investors in New York City in 1817 under a buttonwood tree at the end of a little road named Wall Street.
