Amsterdam Exchange

The oldest stock exchange in the world. It was established in 1602 by the Dutch East India Trading Company and operated for centuries as an open outcry exchange for the trade of stocks and bonds. In 1997, it merged with the European Option Exchange to create AEX, which traded derivatives along with stocks and bonds. In 2000, it became part of Euronext.
