Are the new york stock exchange, or nasdaq, or any other stock exchanges actually also publicly traded companies themselves? Can one buy shares of a stock exchange operation? If so, what are some stock symbols for stock exchanges?
Welcome to Personal Finance & Money Stack Exchange
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
Ask questions, get answers, no distractions
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
Are stock exchanges publicly traded companies themselves?
Polish stock exchange trades on GPW under ticker GPW :)
Get answers to practical, detailed questions
Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.
- Personal investing and asset allocation
- The financial aspects of homebuying
- Best practices for saving for retirement, education, and other goals
- Strategies for creating and sticking to a budget
- Strategies for earning and saving more money
Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.
Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.
Don't ask about...
- Anything not directly related to Personal Finance and Money
- Questions that are primarily opinion-based
- Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer
- Product or service recommendations or comparisons
