New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)

the New York Stock Exchange — now part of NYSE Euronext, which was formed in April 2007. The NYSE dates back to the Buttonwood Agreement of 1792, which was signed when 24 prominent brokers and merchants gathered on Wall Street to create a mechanism for trading Securities. In contrast to more modern exchanges, NYSE transactions are still conducted on a trading floor located on Wall Street. See Latham & Watkins publication: Selecting a Securities Exchange: NYSE, NASDAQ, and Key European Exchange Listing Requirements for Equities (May 18, 2007), available at www.lw.com.
