NYSE - New York Stock Exchange
The New York Stock Exchange, or NYSE, can trace its roots back to 17 May 1792 with the Buttonwood Agreement. The agreement was signed by 24 New York stockbrokers in the shade of a buttonwood tree and marked the founding of the New York Stock & Exchange Board. The exchange operated out of the Tontine Coffee House until 1817.
The combined market cap of all stocks listed on the NYSE exceeds $16trillion. This includes companies like Boeing, IBM, McDonalds, Verizon and WalMart.
The New York Stock Exchange building is located on New York's Wall Street, a street that has become synonymous with the stock market.
