NYSE Marks 227th year of American financial strength

NYSE 227th

Nearly 230 years ago this week, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was established with the signing of the Buttonwood Agreement in a meeting of 24 New York City stockbrokers on May 17, 1792.

What began as an attempt to formalize the exchange of securities under a Buttonwood Tree in southern Manhattan has evolved over the centuries into the world’s largest and arguably most powerful stock exchange, hitting $30 trillion in market capitalization in 2018.

Today, the New York Stock Exchange has more than 2,400 listed companies and handles average daily trading of more than one billion stock shares.
