New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)

New York Stock Exchange-NYSE

One of the largest and busiest markets for securities and other exchange-traded goods worldwide is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). For the bulk of its existence, members have owned NYSE stock. The market cap of the NYSE, which is well recognized for having a wide range of technological companies, is higher than that of the NASDAQ (e.g., Google and Facebook). Unlike the NASDAQ, where trading is totally automated, the NYSE employs human operators to monitor and occasionally carry out electronic trading.

Pricing changed from fractional to decimal in 2001. In 2003, corporate governance regulations were enacted that mandate listed business boards to consist of a majority of independent (non-employee) directors. For a corporation to be listed on the NYSE, several criteria must be met. In 1978, 18 Broad Street and 11 Wall Street received historical monument designations. Two trading floors are available at this facility, one for the NYSE American Options market and the other for equities. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

The New York Stock Exchange’s opening and closing bells signal the start and finish of each trading day. The closing bell, which ends trading for the day at 4:00 p.m. ET, is rung at the same time as the opening bell: 9:30 a.m. ET. The NYSE joined the U.N. Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative in July 2013, and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon rang the bell to commemorate the occasion.
