Apr 3, 2008
The NYSE can trace its roots to 1792, however it did not become known as the New York Stock Exchange until 1817 when the organization drafted a constitution. In early times is composed of 5 rooms which were used for trading but today the trading center has expanded to much bigger. It is located in 18 Broad Street, New York City.

It is the biggest stock exchange in the world in the amount of dollars that flows through it each day and has the second largest in terms of numbers of company listing, exceeded only by NASDAQ.

The global capitalization of the exchange is $2.1 trillion with $1.7 trillion by companies not based in the U.S.It works similar to that of an auction. Every company listed trades in one location. A specialist broker designated by each of the listed companies has the duty of acting as an auctioneer at the company post.

Buyers and sellers of a particular stock come together around a specific post and an auction takes place. This form of trading helps generate a price for stocks that is competitive, efficient and fair for both buyers and sellers. The human interaction and the educated judgment helps determine the difference of the New York Exchange from other stock exchanges that are fully electronic.
