And what does a .000 significance level mean? That is on a lot of SPSS outputs and I don't know what it means.

I don't know how to tell if a value passes the critical region or not. What does it mean if something is significant at the .01 level? How do I tell? What does it mean for a value to be less than the critical?

And what does a .000 significance level mean? That is on a lot of SPSS outputs and I don't know what it means.

On the SPSS output, where do I look to find the P Value? It says Sig. .028 is that the P Value?

If an item is less than 0.28 (like 0.15 or 0.26) than is that item significant? And if an item is larger than .028 (like .178 or .272)

Unless my memory is bad the slope/divided by the standard error will give you a T value. This in turn leads to a given p value, which is essentially tell you how likely the results you got were due to random chance alone. If p < than .05 that means the slope you found was signficant at the .05 level. If its less than .01 than its signficant at that level. Etc.

Generally if p is less than .05 you can reasonably conclude that the slope you found was "real" (and thus reflects what you would find in the actual population). What the slope means is something you have to interpret substantively not based on statistics. It would appear that that an increase in gold price (the independent variable) leads to a 2.9 unit increase in customer's request o liquidate stock and that this is statistically signficant (not likely to be random error).

Note that 15 cases is way to small to be reasonably sure of anything in regression. You normally want a 100 or more cases at least.
