How the New York Stock Exchange Works
In our top story Nicole takes us on a tour of the New York Stock Exchange. The NYSE was founded in 1792 and today billions of dollars exchange hands there everyday. More than 2,000 companies trade their stock there. Owning stock is like owning a stake in a company, if the company does well you can make money, if it does badly you can lose money.

Exclusive New York Stock Exchange Tour
The New York Stock Exchange building in the Financial District is one of the most iconic buildings in NYC. Located at 11 Wall Street, the historical site has been closed to the public ever since September 11, with only private meetings, bell-ringing events and school field trips allowed. However, we got an exclusive look inside. Watch to see the standout, historical items from the New York Stock Exchange. Read about the secret rooms inside the New York Stock Exchange: https://www.timeout.com/newyork/blog/the-new-york-stock-exchange-is-filled-with-historic-secrets-082117 We toured the building’s many conference rooms filled with historical items, snuck a peek at the invitation-only restaurant and hidden dining room next door, and admired the architecture of the board rooms that were there when it was founded in 1792. Standout items found inside the New York Stock Exchange building include the largest Fabergé piece in the world, a Led Zeppelin guitar, Andy Warhol art, a clock from 1867 and the Buttonwood Agreement, one of the oldest historical documents in the United States found outside Washington, D.C. There’s also an autograph wall signed by bell-ringers that’s hidden inside a hallway, and a map room that’s just full of, you guessed it, maps. Below all the history-filled rooms, there’s the trading floor—that’s where the stocks are traded. There’s also the iconic bell, the most famous item in the New York Stock Exchange. Currently, 36 media outlets film shows and live-stream from the trading floor, adding to the hustle and bustle. Even if you never get the chance to go inside the New York Stock Exchange, it’s worth visiting Wall Street to see the famous Charging Bull statue. It’s found in Bowling Green in the Financial District, and earlier this year, an artist unveiled the Fearless Girl statue directly across from it.

1929 Wall Street Stock Market Crash
The most devastating stock market crash in the history of the United States; Its from my favorite documentary by PBS - New York. This particular part about Wall Street crash of 1929 is from episode 5 of the series with title: Cosmopolis there are lots of archive photos, footages and drawings throughout the series and in my opinion it was great work done with finding them. series website: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/newyork/series/index.html "Archival shoots took place at various historical and cultural institutions, including the New-York Historical Society, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Library of Congress, and focused on the filming of particularly rare or large-scale archival prints, lithographs, maps, and photographs"

How Does Floor Trading Work on the New York Stock Exchange - Wall Street Stock Market
Floor trading is where traders or stockbrokers meet at a specific venue referred to as a trading floor or pit to buy and sell financial instruments using open outcry method to communicate with each other. More on stock trading: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=doc06-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=3b70391c913a3a0dc8e7add5852ad72a&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=stock%20trading These venues are typically stock exchanges or futures exchanges and transactions are executed by members of such an exchange using specific language or hand signals. During the 1980s and 1990s phone and electronic trading replaced physical floor trading in most exchanges around the world. As of 2007 few exchanges still have floor trading. One example is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) which still executes a small percentage of its trades on the floor. That means that the traders actually form a group around the post on the floor of the market for the specialist, someone that works for one of the NYSE member firms and handles the stock. Just like in an auction, there are shouts coming from those that want to sell and those that want to buy. The specialist facilitates in the match and centralizing the trades. On January 24, 2007, the NYSE went from being strictly an auction market to a hybrid market that encompassed both the auction method and an electronic trading method that immediately makes the trade electronically. A small group of extremely high-priced stocks isn't on this trading system and is still auctioned on the trading floor. Even though over 82 percent of the trades take place electronically, the action on the floor of the stock exchange still has its place. While electronic trading is faster and provides for anonymity, there's more opportunity to improve the price of a share if it goes to the floor. Investors maintain the right to select the method they want to use. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floor_trading On October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) dropped 508 points, a 22.6% loss in a single day, the second-biggest one-day drop the exchange had experienced. Black Monday was followed by Terrible Tuesday, a day in which the Exchange's systems did not perform well and some people had difficulty completing their trades. Subsequently, there was another major drop for the Dow on October 13, 1989; the Mini-Crash of 1989. The crash was apparently caused by a reaction to a news story of a $6.75 billion leveraged buyout deal for UAL Corporation, the parent company of United Airlines, which broke down. When the UAL deal fell through, it helped trigger the collapse of the junk bond market causing the Dow to fall 190.58 points, or 6.91 percent. Similarly, there was a panic in the financial world during the year of 1997; the Asian Financial Crisis. Like the fall of many foreign markets, the Dow suffered a 7.18% drop in value (554.26 points) on October 27, 1997, in what later became known as the 1997 Mini-Crash but from which the DJIA recovered quickly. This was the first time that the "circuit breaker" rule had operated. On January 26, 2000, an altercation during filming of the music video for "Sleep Now in the Fire", which was directed by Michael Moore, caused the doors of the exchange to be closed and the band Rage Against the Machine to be escorted from the site by security[15] after band members attempted to gain entry into the exchange.[16] Trading on the exchange floor, however, continued uninterrupted.[17] In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the NYSE was closed for 4 trading sessions, one of the longest times the NYSE was closed for more than one session; only the third time since March 1933. On May 6, 2010, the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted its largest intraday percentage drop since the October 19, 1987 crash, with a 998 point loss later being called the 2010 Flash Crash (as the drop occurred in minutes before rebounding). The SEC and CFTC published a report on the event, although it did not come to a conclusion as to the cause. The regulators found no evidence that the fall was caused by erroneous ("fat finger") orders.[18] On October 29, 2012, the stock exchange was shut down for 2 days due to Hurricane Sandy.[19] The last time the stock exchange was closed due to weather for a full two days was on March 12 and 13 in 1888.[20] On May 1, 2014 the stock exchange was fined $4.5 million "to settle charges it violated market rules, the Securities and Exchange Commission said Thursday." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Stock_Exchange

New York City 4K - Wall Street Drive
Fun Facts: Average Wall Street income $422,500. Average bonus $184,000. $100 Billion in gold stored in Wall Street district. 20% of New York City wages goes to Wall Street employees. Drive Highlights: Wall Street Bull, close proximity to The Continental Hotel from movie John Wick, brief view of famous New York Stock Exchange, and the South Street Seaport. Time of Day: Thursday afternoon. Wall Street is an eight-block-long street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Anchored by Wall Street, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, and the city is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. In the Public Imagination Wall Street in a conceptual sense represents financial and economic power. To Americans, it can sometimes represent elitism and power politics. Wall Street has become synonymous with financial interests, often used negatively. In addition, images of Wall Street and its figures have loomed large. The 1987 Oliver Stone film Wall Street created the iconic figure of Gordon Gekko who used the phrase "greed is good", which caught on in the cultural parlance. Over time, the term has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial services industry (even if financial firms are not physically located there), or New York–based financial interests. Anchored by Wall Street, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, and the city is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Several other major exchanges have or had headquarters in the Wall Street area, including the New York Mercantile Exchange, the New York Board of Trade, and the former American Stock Exchange. The seven largest Wall Street firms in the 2000s were Bear Stearns, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup Incorporated, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers. Importance In the New York Economy Estimates vary about the number and quality of financial jobs in the city. The city's securities industry, enumerating 163,400 jobs in August 2013, continues to form the largest segment of the city's financial sector and an important economic engine, accounting in 2012 for 5 percent of private sector jobs in New York City, 8.5 percent (US$3.8 billion) of the city's tax revenue, and 22 percent of the city's total wages, including an average salary of US$360,700. One estimate was that Wall Street firms employed close to 200,000 persons in 2008. Another estimate was that in 2007, the financial services industry which had a $70 billion profit became 22 percent of the city's revenue. Another estimate (in 2006) was that the financial services industry makes up 9% of the city's work force and 31% of the tax base. Tourism Wall Street is a major location of tourism in New York City. One report described lower Manhattan as "swarming with camera-carrying tourists". Tour guides highlight places such as Trinity Church, the Federal Reserve gold vaults 80 feet below street level (worth $100 billion), and the NYSE. In Popular Culture The film Wall Street (1987) and its sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) exemplify many popular conceptions of Wall Street as a center of shady corporate dealings and insider trading. In the Star Trek universe, the Ferengi are said to make regular pilgrimages to Wall Street, which they worship as a holy site of commerce and business. In the film The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Bane attacks the Gotham City Stock Exchange. Scenes were filmed in and around the New York Stock Exchange, with the J.P. Morgan Building at Wall Street and Broad Street standing in for the Exchange. The film The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) is a black comedy about Jordan Belfort, a New York stockbroker who ran Stratton Oakmont, a firm that engaged in securities fraud and corruption on Wall Street from 1987 to 1998. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wall_Street http://time.com/money/5215695/wall-street-bankers-got-184000-in-bonuses-last-year/ http://fortune.com/2018/09/17/wall-street-salaries-recovered-levels-financial-crisis/

Support Our Channel : https://www.patreon.com/PeriscopeFilm Dating from 1957, "Behind the Ticker Tape" tells the story of the American Stock Exchange (now NYSE), showing how securities sales have evolved over the years, and giving a profile of the ASE at the height of its activity. NYSE MKT LLC, formerly known as the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), is an American stock exchange situated in New York City, New York. AMEX was previously a mutual organization, owned by its members. Until 1953, it was known as the New York Curb Exchange. On January 17, 2008, NYSE Euronext announced it would acquire the AMEX for $260 million in stock; on October 1, 2008, NYSE Euronext completed the acquisition. Before the closing of the acquisition, NYSE Euronext announced that the AMEX would be integrated with the Alternext European small-cap exchange and renamed the NYSE Alternext U.S. In March 2009, NYSE Alternext U.S. was changed to NYSE Amex Equities. On May 10, 2012, NYSE Amex Equities changed its name to NYSE MKT LLC. These brokers often traded stocks that were speculative in nature. With the discovery of oil in the latter half of the 19th century, even oil stocks entered into the curb market. By 1865, following the American Civil War, stocks in small industrial companies, such as iron and steel, textiles and chemicals were first sold by curbstone brokers. Efforts to organize and standardize the market started early in the 20th century under Emanuel S. Mendels and Carl H. Pforzheimer.. In 1908, the New York Curb Market Agency was established, to codify trading practices. In 1911, the curbstone brokers came to be known as the New York Curb Market, which then had a formal constitution with brokerage and listing standards. After several years of outdoor trading, the curbstone brokers moved indoors in 1921 to New York Curb Exchange Building on Greenwich Street in Lower Manhattan. In 1929, the New York Curb Market changed its name to the New York Curb Exchange. Within no time, the Curb Exchange became the leading international stock market, listing more foreign issues than all other U.S. securities markets combined. In 1953 the Curb Exchange was renamed the American Stock Exchange. Paul Kolton was named as president of the exchange in 1971, making him the first person to be selected from within the exchange to serve as its leader, succeeding Ralph S. Saul, who announced his resignation in March 1971. In November 1972, Kolton was named as the exchange's first chief executive officer and its first salaried top executive. Kolton opposed the idea of a merger with the New York Stock Exchange while he headed the exchange saying that "two independent, viable exchanges are much more likely to be responsive to new pressures and public needs than a single institution". Kolton announced in July 1977 that he would be leaving his position at the American Exchange in November of that year. The American Stock Exchange merged with the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE Euronext) on October 1, 2008.[4] Post merger, the Amex equities business was branded "NYSE Alternext US". As part of the re-branding exercise, NYSE Alternext US was re-branded as NYSE Amex Equities. On December 1, 2008, the Curb Exchange building at 86 Trinity Place was closed, and the Amex Equities trading floor was moved to the NYSE Trading floor at 11 Wall Street.

English/Nat Investors and dealers in London were anxiously watching events on Wall Street on Tuesday afternoon as the Dow Jones index fell further. A nervous City saw shares in leading British companies bounce back once trading started in New York. The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips slipped close to the day's lowest levels when 132 (b) billion dollars was wiped off shares in a 457 points fall in the minutes before Wall Street opened at 1430 G-M-T. But within 10 minutes of U-S trading resuming the FTSE recovered and was showing a fall of 376.9 points, down to 4-thousand-471.9. London newspapers carried the story of a meltdown on stock markets on Tuesday as they suffered their most drastic crisis since 1987's Black Monday. The market braced itself for the worst as Wall Street reopened at 1430 G-M-T, following the seven per cent slide that triggered its early closing on Monday. But a nervous City saw shares in leading British companies bounce back after sliding in advance of trading opening in New York. The U-K's Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips fell by more than nine per cent in the first half hour of trading on Tuesday morning. At 1240 G-M-T the FTSE 100 had dropped by 6.69 per cent - down 324 points at 4-thousand-516 after falling more than nine per cent early in the session. Analysts cited turmoil in Hong Kong as the main trigger, although they said a meltdown was waiting to happen, with stock markets in general being overvalued. The chief executive of the London International Financial Futures Exchange explained what was happening. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There's a lot of volatility. There's a lot of price changes, which means a lot of volume. People want to hedge their positions. It's all to do with the atmosphere of uncertainty. If stock markets fall it creates an atmosphere of uncertainty. It also creates a bearish mood, a mood of pessimism. That's what is being reflected here. You see a mood of pessimism coming over bond markets, which means that the markets which relate to bond markets - the derivative markets of bond markets - are actually in a pessimistic mood, and they start falling too." SUPER CAPTION: Daniel Hodson, Chief Executive, London International Financial Futures Exchange At NatWest Stockbrokers in London workers braced themselves for the opening of the New York Stock Exchange. The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index of British blue chips slipped close to the day's lowest levels when 132 (b) billion dollars was wiped off shares in a 457 points fall in the minutes before Wall Street opened at 1430 G-M-T. Within 10 minutes of U-S trading resuming the FTSE recovered and was showing a fall of 376.9 points, down to 4-thousand-471.9. But the head of research at NatWest Stockbrokers said the bottom of the downturn may not yet have been reached. SOUNDBITE: (English) "When sentiment turns we do have a vicious downward spiral. What we're now waiting for is a sign that that downward spiral is petering out and the bottom has been reached, but at the moment there's not sign of it." SUPER CAPTION: Jeremy Batstone, Head of Research, NatWest Stockbrokers But while some City people chose to contemplate the ups and downs of the trading day and the risks involved, others were happy to skate on slighter thicker ice.

Wall Street Warriors | Episode 1 Season 3 "Enter the Bears" [HD]
The first episode of Season 3 (the lost season!) of Wall Street Warriors – a 10-part Docu-Reality Series that was shot on Wall Street during the meltdown that lead to The Great Recession. Episode 1 starts with rumors of an impending crisis... by episode 10 there are near riots outside the New York Stock Exchange. "Enter the Bears" The 3rd season opener gives a behind-the-scenes look at the New York and Chicago financial districts just as the credit crunch begins to unfold. Fearing a deep recession, sibling stock brokers, Phil & Ken, argue over how best to protect their client's money. Doug, a floor trader on Chicago's famous outcry pits, shows what it takes to be a survivor in the cut-throat environment. Meanwhile, Kristi, CEO of a new online trading firm, Think or Swim, stresses out trying to meet a major filing deadline while Rich, the Hedge Fund guy, tries to profit from the growing oil bubble. Episode 2 "The Fear Gauge" is available here: https://youtu.be/A3Mhtb1c55o Wall Street Warriors S3 Ep1: Coming up next on Wall Street Warriors. PHIL: Today's the start of the official bear market. RICH: Stress levels are off the charts. DOUG: The American economy is so weak right now. KEN: We're down 13. PHIL: You're [bleep]ing killing me here. KRISTI: The tension is visible. Just keep me updated. Good-bye! Grrr!

There's more money than I've ever seen. DOUG: A broker comes into the crowd with a 10,000-lot order, and the premium on the order is huge, crazy money. Billions and billions of dollars are traded on a daily basis out here. It’s Capitalism to the extreme. A lot of people make a lot of good money down here, but you pay the price, too. DOUG: Right now, we're in a little tricky area. The American public wants a rally, but any kind of move to the downside gets people panic. I think we could start having a problem in the market. DOUG:I think the credit crisis is huge right now because when the U.S. economy gets bad, people run and they buy oil. They buy gold. TRADER #2: There's a confidence that, uh, has eroded. TRADER #3: There's a lot of money on the sidelines. DOUG: The dollar's getting pounded because the American economy is so weak right now. There's a problem. I mean, there's-- there's a problem that has to be solved. Something's gotta be fixed. NEW YORK FINANCIAL DISTRICT KEN & PHILIP BRISARD STOCK BROKERS PHIL: We can probably raise a cool $3 million out of that seminar. Now, you had a ACAP come in last week. Did it settle? KEN: Yeah. Well, it settled for about 620,000. KEN: Today is definitely gonna mark a historic day because we are officially in a bear market. PHIL: Front page of The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and all these other financial newspapers are calling this the "Great Depression." KEN: We currently have oil, natural gas. The dollar's at a 52-week low. And those three components of the economy are hurting us really bad. Right now you need to keep everyone calm, collected, and tell them about the options strategy. Don't get into the panic mode, 'cause everyone panics when everything's going wrong. You know, no one can see the light of day. And this is what tells me there's opportunity all over the place. Brisard & Brisard. I'm a financial advisor. I've been doing this 14 1/2 years along with my partner, which is also my brother Ken. We deal with stocks, bonds, and options. Some people say don't do business with your family, but I don't know who else I could do business and trust. The writing's on the wall. All you have to do is go the opposite way. But every single day, myself and my brother, we reach a point of, uh, disagreement. You're a genius on that. And you know what? No, you called me an idiot. I called you an idiot on it because you know what? I actually booked some of my clients out of the SKF right around $120 'cause the market... Phil likes to do things his way. HEDGE FUND MANAGER RICH TAG: I watched the past three months oil go from 80 to 130. But it's gonna turn, right? I mean, in the U.S., prices are high enough. In London, they're picketing, and they're burning gas stations down, right? Wall Street is feast or famine. We just came out of five years of hyper growth, and boom, we got hit with the sub-prime crisis, and Wall Street started to pare back and lay off. Stress levels are off the charts. There's a lot of hysteria in the markets now. Many of the energy hedge funds are flat or minus for the year. Hedge funds are now managing a significant share, probably 50% of America's investable assets.

The New York Stock Exchange – Wall St – New York City New York
"Wall Street is a 0.7 miles (1.1 km), eight-block-long, street running west to east from Broadway to South Street on the East River in Lower Manhattan in the financial district of New York City. Over time, the term has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial sector (even if financial firms are not physically located there), or signifying New York-based financial interests. Wall Street is the home of the New York Stock Exchange, the world's largest stock exchange by overall average daily trading volume and by total market capitalization of its listed companies. Several other major exchanges have or had headquarters in the Wall Street area, including NASDAQ, the New York Mercantile Exchange, the New York Board of Trade, and the former American Stock Exchange. Anchored by Wall Street, New York City has been called the world's principal financial center. In popular culture Film The film Wall Street (1987) and its sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) exemplify many popular conceptions of Wall Street as a center of shady corporate dealings and insider trading. The film Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995) has a plot involving thieves breaking into the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and stealing most of the gold bullion stored underground, by driving dump trucks through a nearby Wall Street subway station. Many events of Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities center on Wall Street and its culture. In the film National Treasure (2004), a clue to finding the Templar Treasure leads the main characters to Wall Street's Trinity Church. In the Chandran Rutnam directed film Prince of Malacca, a Wall Street billionaire hedge fund manager, after seeking nadi astrology in India, is enters into a double deal by becoming a CIA’s intelligence officer with a special directive from the President of the United States of America to detect a drug cartel in Southeast Asia, in an exchange for using space and satellite technology to locate an island in the Strait of Malacca, where in a tribal community his lover of previous birth is born as a beautiful dancer. In the film The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Bane attacks the Gotham City Stock Exchange. Scenes were filmed in and around the New York Stock Exchange, with the J.P. Morgan Building at Wall Street and Broad Street standing in for the Exchange. The film The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) is a black comedy about Jordan Belfort, a New York stockbroker who ran the firm, Stratton Oakmont, that engaged in securities fraud and corruption on Wall Street in the 1990s. Literature Bret Easton Ellis' novel American Psycho (1991) follows the day-to-day life of Wall Street investment banker and serial killer Patrick Bateman. Multimedia franchises In the fictional Star Trek universe, Wall Street is frequently visited by Ferengi pilgrims, who revere it as a holy site of commerce and business. (Star Trek: Voyager episode 11:59) Music Battles 2011 album Gloss Drop contains a song titled "Wall Street." On January 26, 2000, the band Rage Against The Machine filmed the music video for "Sleep Now in the Fire" on Wall Street, which was directed by Michael Moore. The band at one point stormed the New York Stock Exchange, causing the doors of the Exchange to be closed early (2:52 P.M.). Trading on the Exchange floor, however, continued uninterrupted. "Walking On Wall Street" is the name of a song from the animated children's educational musical series, Schoolhouse Rock!. Sports TNA wrestler Robert Roode is billed from "Wall Street in Manhattan, New York". Television In the Star Trek fictional universe, the Ferengi (an alien race particularly devoted to capitalistic principles) make regular pilgrimages to Earth in order to visit Wall Street, which they worship as a sacred site of commerce and business. Video games In the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, in 2016, soldiers are sent to destroy an invader's radar jamming installation on top of the New York Stock Exchange. In the video game Crysis 2, Wall Street is featured as a multiplayer map as well as a singleplayer location. In the video game Grand Theft Auto IV, Wall Street in the fictional Liberty City is a district dubbed The Exchange." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wall_Street http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Stock_Exchange

An Overview of the New York Stock Exchange: Building, Trading Floor, History (1998)
The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), sometimes known as the "Big Board", is a stock exchange located at 11 Wall Street, Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States. More on the NYSE: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=7dfab24c59ae2892ac3f17c1a4ede1f5&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=nyse It is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$16.613 trillion as of May 2013. Average daily trading value was approximately US$169 billion in 2013. The NYSE trading floor is located at 11 Wall Street and is composed of four rooms used for the facilitation of trading. A fifth trading room, located at 30 Broad Street, was closed in February 2007. The main building, located at 18 Broad Street, between the corners of Wall Street and Exchange Place, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1978, as was the 11 Wall Street building. The NYSE is operated by NYSE Euronext (NYSE: NYX), which was formed by the NYSE's 2007 merger with the fully electronic stock exchange Euronext. In December 2012, it was announced that the company would be sold to Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), a futures exchange headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, for $8 billion, a figure that is significantly less than the $11 billion bid for the company tendered in 2011. The origin of the NYSE can be traced to May 17, 1792, when the Buttonwood Agreement was signed by 24 stockbrokers outside of 68 Wall Street in New York under a buttonwood tree on Wall Street.[10] On March 8, 1817, the organization drafted a constitution and renamed itself the "New York Stock & Exchange Board". Anthony Stockholm was elected the Exchange's first president. The last central location of the Exchange was a room, rented in 1792 for $200 a month, located at 40 Wall Street. After that location was destroyed in the Great Fire of New York in 1835, the Exchange moved to a temporary headquarters. In 1863, the New York Stock & Exchange Board changed to its current name, the New York Stock Exchange. In 1865, the Exchange moved to 10--12 Broad Street. The New York Stock Exchange was closed for ten days starting September 20, 1873, because of the Panic of 1873.[11] The volume of stocks traded increased sixfold in the years between 1896 and 1901, and a larger space was required to conduct business in the expanding marketplace.[12] Eight New York City architects were invited to participate in a design competition for a new building; ultimately, the Exchange selected the neoclassic design submitted by architect George B. Post. Demolition of the Exchange building at 10 Broad Street, and adjacent buildings, started on May 10, 1901. The main façade featuring six tall columns with Corinthian capitals The new building, located at 18 Broad Street, cost $4 million and opened on April 22, 1903. The trading floor, at 109 × 140 feet (33 × 42.5 m), was one of the largest volumes of space in the city at the time, and had a skylight set into a 72-foot (22 m)-high ceiling. The main façade of the building features six tall columns with Corinthian capitals, topped by a marble pediment containing high-relief sculptures by John Quincy Adams Ward with the collaboration of Paul Wayland Bartlett, carved by the Piccirilli Brothers, representing Integrity Protecting the Works of Man. The building was listed as a National Historic Landmark and added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 2, 1978.[13] In 1922, a building for offices, designed by Trowbridge & Livingston, was added at 11 Wall Street, as well as a new trading floor called the Garage. Additional trading floor space was added in 1969 the Blue Room, and in 1988 the EBR or Extended Blue Room, with the latest technology for information display and communication. Yet another trading floor was opened at 30 Broad Street called the Bond Room in 2000. As the NYSE introduced its hybrid market, a greater proportion of trading came to be executed electronically, and due to the resulting reduction in demand for trading floor space, the NYSE decided to close the 30 Broad Street trading room in early 2006. As the adoption of electronic trading continued to reduce the number of traders and employees on the floor, in late 2007, the NYSE closed the rooms created by the 1969 and 1988 expansions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NYSE Image By Kowloonese (08:27, 30 May 2004) (Own work) [GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html) or CC-BY-SA-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/)], via Wikimedia Commons

Stock Market for Beginners | by Wall Street Survivor
Are you a stock market beginner? The stock market exists so that companies can raise money without incurring any debt (such is the case of a loan). They issue shares of their company to the public in what is known as an Initial Public Offering (IPO). Investors buy and sell these shares (or stocks) to one another on the stock exchange, thus making stock prices move up and down. If there are more people buying a stock than people selling it, the price goes up with the demand. If more people are selling than there are people buying a stock, that’s a sign that the company is unfavorable to own and the stock price drops. A stock exchange is where investors trade their shares of companies to one another. That’s why stock prices are constantly changing. Stock exchanges bring all these investors together, so that trades happen in a central and regulated place.There are hundreds of stock exchanges all over the world. In the U.S., the top stock exchanges are the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the NASDAQ, and the American Stock Exchange (AMEX). Each of these exchanges have different companies trading on them. For example, NASDAQ is known for technological companies. Most of the tech stocks out there trade on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

NYC - Wall Street, NYSE, Dubliner, etc
Wall Street is a street in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the first permanent home of the New York Stock Exchange, the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies. Over time, Wall Street became the name of the surrounding geographic neighborhood and also shorthand (or a metonym) for the "influential financial interests" of the American financial industry, which is centered in the New York City area. Anchored by Wall Street, New York City vies with the City of London to be the financial capital of the world. Several major U.S. stock and other exchanges remain headquartered on Wall Street and in the Financial District, including the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, NYMEX, NYBOT and the investment bank Deutsche Bank. Stone Street is a street in Manhattan's Financial District. It originally ran from Broadway to Hanover Square, but was divided into two sections by the construction of the Goldman Sachs building at 85 Broad Street in the 1980s. Today the cluster of historic buildings along Stone, South William, Pearl Streets and Coenties Alley form the Stone Street Historic District.

Is Wall Street Really Corrupt? New York Stock Exchange: Richard Grasso
Richard A. "Dick" Grasso (born July 26, 1946[1] in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York) was chairman and chief executive of the New York Stock Exchange from 1995 to 2003, the culmination of a career that began in 1968 when Grasso was hired by the Exchange as a floor clerk. After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Grasso became the public face of the Exchange and was praised for his role in helping restart operations. He later became embroiled in controversies and lawsuits about his allegedly excessive pay package and $140 million golden parachute, but on July 1, 2008, the New York State Court of Appeals dismissed all claims against Grasso. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Grasso Former chairman and chief executive Dennis Kozlowski and former chief financial officer Mark H. Swartz were accused of the theft of more than $150 million from the company. During their trial in March 2004, they contended the board of directors authorized it as compensation. During jury deliberations, juror Ruth Jordan, while passing through the courtroom, appeared to make an "okay" sign with her fingers to the defense table. She later denied she had intended that gesture, but the incident received much publicity (including a caricature in The Wall Street Journal), and the juror received threats after her name became public. Judge Michael Obus declared a mistrial on April 2, 2004. On June 17, 2005, after a retrial, Kozlowski and Swartz were convicted on all but one of the more than 30 counts against them. The verdicts carry potential jail terms of up to 25 years in state prison. Kozlowski himself was sentenced to no less than eight years and four months and no more than 25 years in prison. Swartz received the same sentence. Then in May 2007, New Hampshire Federal District Court Judge Paul Barbadoro approved a class action settlement whereby Tyco agreed to pay $2.92 billion (in conjunction with $225 million by Pricewaterhouse Coopers, their auditors) to a class of defrauded shareholders represented by Grant & Eisenhofer P.A., Schiffrin, Barroway, Topaz & Kessler, and Milberg Weiss & Bershad. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tone_at_the_top#Tyco_Scandal

What is The NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) ?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is the “NYSE” The New York Stock Exchange, often referred to as NYSE and "The Big Board," is the largest stock exchange by market capitalization in the world. Home to more than 2,800 companies with a combined value of more than $15 trillion, the NYSE relies on face-to-face trades, rather than electronic trades. The NYSE began in 1792, when 24 stockbrokers gathered under a buttonwood tree on Wall Street to sign an agreement that established the rules for buying and selling bonds and shares of companies. This agreement, or the Buttonwood Agreement, was named after the tree. The NYSE is the oldest and largest stock exchange in the U.S., located on Wall Street in New York City. The NYSE is responsible for setting policy, supervising member activities, listing securities, overseeing the transfer of member seats, and evaluating applicants. Unlike some of the newer exchanges, the NYSE still uses a large trading floor in order to conduct its transactions. It is here that the representatives of buyers and sellers, professionals known as brokers, meet and shout out prices at one another in order to strike a deal. This is called the open outcry system and it usually produces fair market pricing. In order to facilitate the exchange of stocks, the NYSE employs individuals called specialists who are assigned to manage the buying and selling of specific stocks and to buy those stocks when no one else will.
