The New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Exchange

The name of the stock exchange or the place where the transaction occurred, urges brokers, investors and dealers to try to buy and sell shares of the image of the busy floor The However, a stock exchange may be a real physical space because we trade through a network of telecommunications networks or virtual places. Two of the two well-known examples of the two stock exchanges are the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), which is a physical stock exchange and Nasdaq is an online network. Most of the transactions in the Americas and around the world take place on the two stock exchanges, which are well-known names for stock traders. However, there are some fundamental differences between the two.

New York Stock Exchange has big companies such as Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart and General Electric listed; instead, Nasdaq lists "technology giants" such as Microsoft, Cisco and Oracle.
