Nasdaq stock market

The first electronic stock market listing over 5000 companies. The Nasdaq stock market comprises two separate markets, namely the Nasdaq National Market, which trades large, active securities and the Nasdaq Smallcap Market that trades emerging growth companies.


The largest electronic exchange in the world and the second largest exchange in the United States. It was established in 1971 and was originally organized as a successor to over-the-counter "curb trading" that was previously popular in New York. As a result it was considered in some circles an over-the-counter trading system as late as the mid-1980s. NASDAQ has the highest trading volume of any exchange in the world, and is a popular exchange for technology companies. It was originally owned by the NASD (now FINRA) and was spun off in 2000 and 2001. See also: NASDAQ Composite Index, Dot-Com Bubble.

Nasdaq Stock Market.

The Nasdaq Stock Market is the world's oldest and largest electronic stock market and is now a national securities exchange and an independent self-regulatory organization (SRO).

It has no central trading location or exchange floor. Instead it uses a fully automated, open market, multiple dealer trading system, with many market makers competing to handle transactions in each individual stock.

The most active stock market in the nation, Nasdaq handles more initial public offerings than any other US exchange. It lists many emerging companies as well as industry giants, especially in biotechnology, communications, financial services, media, retail, technology, and transportation.
