A stock exchange is an institution, organization or association that serves as a market for trading financial instruments such as stocks, bonds and their related derivatives. Most modern stock exchanges, like NYSE Euronext, have both a trading floor and an electronic trading system.

Exchanges make money in several different areas. Listings, sales, and selling market statistics are some of the various ways that they produce revenue.

Electronic trading has dramatically reduced the cost of entry into this market. Several exchanges have developed in recent years such as BATS Exchange out of Kansas City. This new competition have reduced the spread of purchases and sales across the market.


Increasingly, exchange owners and operators are getting themselves listed on their own exchanges. This is the case with companies like NYSE Euronext, Deutsche Boerse AG, NASDAQ OMX Group and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
