Opening Bell

Opening Bell

A traditional bell that is rung to signify the beginning of a trading day. The opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange is one of the more famous examples. As an increasing number of securities exchanges do most or all their trading online, a bell has become a symbol or informal term for the beginning of a trading day rather than a description of a real bell. See also: Closing Bell.
