The “New York Stock Exchange” (NYSE) Was Founded This Day 225 Years Ago — On May 17, 1792.
225 years ago. Wow. That does seem like a long time ago.
Just think: IF you had ancestors who bought stock that day and held onto them.
I don’t think, though I haven’t looked it up, that this was the first Stock Exchange. Something tells me that London or possibly Amsterdam predated New York. Nonetheless, 225-years is quite the anniversary. 225 years from now will be 2,242!
