True.

Or price elasticity.
Or natural monopolies.
Or globalization.
Or tariffs.
Or competitive advantage vs. absolute advantage

I didn't major in it, but I did take macro- and micro-econ as electives. You learn enough to start making better consumer decisions.

they say this a lot in the stock markets ,they love to say there are more buyers than sellers or sellers than buyers but for every seller there has to be a buyer and for every buyer a seller .

there can be no transaction without it . what changes is what someone is willing to pay . but there are never more shares being sold than there are buyers for those shares .

I guess you could say that there’s more supply of “supply and demand” comments than demand?

For every completed transaction there is a match of buyer and seller. There are imbalances and not all orders are executed.

correct but then no transaction takes place and no prices logged . it has to take place to count . only executed orders effect price so every share needs a taker that is sold .

If I want to sell and enter an ask that goes unfilled, I drop my ask until sold or I pull my ask. Same concept for a bid only in the opposite direction. So the prices that it did not sell at are not logged as you call it, but yet they motivate (move) the market one way or the other. When there is an imbalance on one side or the other the market it is said to have more buyers or sellers. Not everyone goes home with a dance partner, but everyone gets a shot to shake their booty.
