The financial acronym NYSE refers to the New York Stock Exchange. The NYSE is the primary market for the largest capitalization stocks based in the United States and is the world’s largest stock exchange in terms of its market capitalization.
For example, the New York Stock Exchange or NYSE has a combined capitalization of $28.5 trillion for the stocks traded there, and the exchange is now operated by NYSE Euronext. NYSE Euronext was formed in 2007 after the merger of the European electronic stock exchange Euronext and the NYSE. Euronext is the combination of the Stock Markets of Paris, Brussels, Lisbon and Amsterdam. The conglomerate also includes the London International Financial Futures Exchange or LIFFE. NYSE Euronext makes up one of the “Big Three” world financial trading conglomerates, along with the CME Group and the Nasdaq OMX group.
