Composite trading

Composite Trading

A report at the end of each trading day of the changes in price, trading volume, and closing prices for securities that trade on a given exchange or in a given country. Because some securities trade on multiple exchanges in different time zones, the composite trading report may not be completely accurate, but it provides a quick look at how different securities did over the trading day.

Composite trading.

Composite trading figures report end-of-day price changes, closing prices, and the daily trading volume for stocks, warrants, and options listed on a stock exchange.

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) total also includes transactions on regional exchanges and listed securities traded over-the-counter.

Since trading continues on some of those exchanges after the close of business in New York, the composite figures give a comprehensive picture of the day's activities but do not include after-hours transactions.
