Why does the code below stop executing after displaying all the numbers stored in an array?

//this will let the user enter 10 values and 
//store them into an array. After that
//sort it out and cout the largest and the smallest number entered

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
	const int NUM_ARRAY = 10; //number of numbers to be entered
	int numHolder[NUM_ARRAY]; // where the numbers will be stored
	int count; //accumulator
	int highest; //highest number
	int lowest; //lowest number

	//input the numbers
	for (count = 0; count < NUM_ARRAY; count++)
	{
		cout << "Please enter series of numbers"
		<< (count + 1) << ": ";
		cin >> numHolder[count];
	}
	//show the numbers entered
	cout <<"The numbers you entered are: \n";
	for (count = 0; count < NUM_ARRAY; count++)
		cout << numHolder[count]<< endl;

	//pick the highest number
	cout << "The highest is: ";
	highest = numHolder[0];
	for (int hcount = 0; hcount < numHolder[count]; hcount++)
	{
		if (numHolder[count] > highest)
			highest = numHolder[count];
	}
	

return 0;
	
}

At the end of the second for loop count equals NUM_ARRAY. count isn't changed between then and it's use in the terminating condition in the third for loop. This means that in the third for loop numHolder[count] is the same as numHolder[NUM_ARRAY] which is out of bounds. The same argument holds for the conditional of the if statement in the third for loop. The third for loop has even bigger problems than that though. Try changing the information inside the () of the third for loop to be the same as they are in the other two and run that.

Okay I made changes. Here is my code but the ouput is wrong. Hmmmmmm....

//this will let the user enter 10 values and 
//store them into an array. After that
//sort it out and cout the largest and the smallest number entered

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    const int NUM_ARRAY = 10; //number of numbers to be entered
    int numHolder[NUM_ARRAY]; // where the numbers will be stored
    int count; //accumulator
    int highest; //highest number
    int lowest; //lowest number

    //input the numbers
    for (count = 0; count < NUM_ARRAY; count++)
    {
        cout << "Please enter series of numbers"
        << (count + 1) << ": ";
        cin >> numHolder[count];
    }
    //show the numbers entered
    cout <<"The numbers you entered are: \n";
    for (count = 0; count < NUM_ARRAY; count++)
        cout << numHolder[count]<< endl;


    for (int count = 1; count < NUM_ARRAY; count++)
    {
        highest = numHolder[0];
        if (numHolder[count] > highest)
            highest = numHolder[count];
    }

    //pick the highest number
    cout << "The highest is: " << highest << endl;

    return 0;

}
