The stock exchange represents a market on which all kinds of securities may be purchased or sold. In most cases, securities are known as shares, stocks and bonds. Government bills are also traded sometimes.

The following presentation will offer information about the largest stock markets in the world:

1. Nicknamed the ‘Big Board’, the New York Stock Exchange is the world’s largest in view of its dollar volume. This giant stock exchange has over 2700 listed securities. It opened on May 17, 1792 in a rented room at Wall Street. A great fire in 1835 resulted in its temporary closure.

2. The National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation System (NASDAQ) is an American stock exchange known as the largest electronic trading market for equity securities in the U.S. The NASDAQ boosts more trading volume per day than any other stock exchange.

3. The London Stock Exchange, with its $7.57 share trades, is located in London, England. Based at Paternoster Square near the St Paul’s Cathedral, the stock exchange is also one of the largest in the world.
