New York City is known for its awe-inspiring sites, historical achievements, and diverse population.
One major milestone in New York City history is the founding of the stock exchange. The world’s biggest stock exchange NYSE began in 1792. History reveals that people began trading on 68 Wall Street beneath the shelter of a buttonwood tree. The first listed company was the Bank of New York, created when stockbrokers signed the Buttonwood agreement that decided the trading rules.
Since then, NYSE has a US$16.613 trillion market capitalization. This stock exchange is quite a milestone in New York financial history.
