the stock market is going down.
the stock market was going down.
the stock market had been going down. soa natural?
A: Actually, it sounds like you understand it pretty well.

You explained the 1st and 3rd perfectly.

The 2nd one can be explained like this:
A: "What happened in the market yesterday?"
B: "The market was going down for most of the day, and then it came up a little near the end."

The 3rd:
A: "How has the market been doing?"
B: "Well, it had been going down for about a month. Hopefully, this month will be better."

The 2nd and 3rd can sometimes mean the same thing. It's important to study the different types of tense (perfect or progressive). They can often mean the same thing, but they have different "feelings". It's one of the more difficult parts of learning English.
The market went down.
The market had gone down.
The market was going down.
The market had been going down.
And so on...
Q: What is the reason about that I could say like
"It will rain tomorrow" or "it will be rainy tomorrow" but I can't say like "it would rain tomorrow" or "it would be rainy tomorrow"?

I'm now learning about "would" usage in all kinds of contexts and I've just confused in the differences between "will" and "would".

I think it seems to have something to do with "rain" being an inanimate object over which
humans have no control at all.
But however, "will" also has the meaning that is committed to express the volition of person.
Though It might look as if I'm spending time in an obsolete problem, is anyone here to solve this?🙏
A: This is a tough one to answer. I think if you are expressing possibility that something will happen in the future, you want to use “may” or “might” or “could” or “will” depending on your level of certainty. “Would” is the past and conditional form of “will” and isn’t used to describe a possible but not certain event in the future.

However, you can say “They said it would rain.” because whoever “they” is expressed in the past that certainly it will rain. You can also say, “They said it might rain,” which implies that “they” were not certain but thought it probable that it would rain. Hope that’s helpful!
