A:

There are three major U.S. financial securities markets which are:

  • New York Stock Exchange (NYSE): NYSE is a stock exchange based in New York. In April 2007, New York Stock Exchange merged with a European stock exchange known as Euronext to form what is currently NYSE Euronext. NYSE Euronext also owns NYSE Arca (formerly the Pacific Exchange).
  • National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation System (Nasdaq): Nasdaq is the largest electronic screen-based market. It currently offers lower listing fees than NYSE.
  • American Stock Exchange (AMEX): Unlike Nasdaq and NYSE, AMEX focuses on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).

Other exchanges in the United States include:

  • Boston Stock Exchange (BSE) - This is made up of the Boston Equities Exchange (BEX) and the Boston Options Exchange (BOX)
  • Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE)
