The Curb

Another name for the American Stock Exchange (AMEX).

The Curb

Informal for the American Stock Exchange, which, prior to its 2008 acquisition by NYSE Euronext, was a mutually owned stock exchange located in Manhattan. Of the three main U.S. stock exchanges, it has the most liberal policies on company listing, having more small companies than either the NYSE or NASDAQ. As a result, it is smaller than either of those stock exchanges by trading volume, handling only about 10% of American securities.
