List of Stock Exchanges
A stock exchange is simply a market that is designed for the sale and purchase
of securities of corporations and municipalities. A stock exchange sells and
buys stocks, shares, and other such securities.
Being able to consult a list of stock exchanges when you are investing is a useful way to determine how the stock market is doing. Consulting a stock exchange listing can also give you a quick view of the types of stocks and investments you can make. The international stock exchange is very complex, and the investor looking at the New York Stock Exchange listing is likely to have a very different way of looking at investments and the stock market in general. This is because each stock exchange world wide is affected by local events. For example an exchange in America may be affected by a local political issue that does not affect an Asian exchange.
Also, each of the international exchanges has different qualifications for listings and so offers different stocks and securities. Even online stock exchanges, presumably less affected by borders than their building-based counterparts, will often differ in their listings and their stability. Staying abreast of various stock exchanges can help you become a better investor.
