HowStuffWorks “How NASDAQ’s Opening and Closing Cross Works”

Then, at 4 p.m. EST, everything c­hanges. Suddenly, prices stop fluctuating and we’re left with the 4 p.m. closing price. The stock, in essence, is in suspended animation.Then, when the market opens again at 9:30 a.m., the price suddenly shifts, and the fluctuations begin all over again. The opening price may be nearly identical to the closing price from the day before, but it may not. Overnight, some piece of bad news from the company may have sent the price plunging 25 percent lower such that the stock price “gaps down” 25 percent. Or a piece of good news could take the price 10 percent higher, and the stock “gaps up.” All of which brings up an interesting question: How does a stock exchange like NASDAQ pick the opening price? How does it make sure that the opening price is fair? In this article, we’ll go behind the scenes at NASDAQ and learn about a process known as the “opening cross.” ­­

If you’re in the market for a fuel efficient car, but you’ve been holding out for something a little more advanced than the Prius — your dreams may have just been answered. Honda announced today that it would begin producing limited quantities of its FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles for sale in the US and Japan over the next few years. According to the automaker, it plans to offer around 200 of the zero-emission cars in the next three years, with a few dozen models expected on the road this year leased at around $600 a month. Said John Mendel, a senior vice president at Honda, “It’s an especially significant day for American Honda as we plant firm footsteps toward the mainstreaming of fuel cell cars.” Now all they have to do is get more than 3 fueling stations out there and we’ll be all set.
