What cause Stock Price Fluctuations?

Stock prices fluctuate depending on a number of factors, including the supply and demand for that stock. If the demand for a stock increases, then generally the price per share will also increase, and vice versa.
Aisde from that, many other factors also affect stock prices, such as economic or political events, company earnings, market speculation, and others.
For example if a lot of people believe that a companies' strength will help them to earn more in the future (e.g as seen recently on tech companies), then their prices will generally increase.
