              NASDAQ is a global U.S. stock exchange that relies exclusively on electronic trading. This marketplace opened in 1971, providing stock price information that investors could use to trade on other exchanges.

              NASDAQ eventually became the world's first electronic stock market, adopting trading in many stocks and becoming popular because of its computerized system. NASDAQ has formal listing requirements, with comparatively lower commissions than the NYSE, that companies must meet to list their shares on the stock exchange. Some examples of securities traded on NASDAQ include Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and others.

              The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is one of the world's leading markets for securities and other publicly traded investments. Its merger with Euronext, a group of European securities exchanges, created a holding company called NYSE Euronext in 2007.

              A corporation must meet certain requirements to be listed on the NYSE, namely to have at least 400 shareholders and 1.1 million shares outstanding. The main players on the New York Stock Exchange are specialists and brokers. They work for investment firms and trade either on behalf of their firm's clients or on behalf of the firm itself.

              Now locals and visitors to New York City can see the exchange building on Wall Street, even though more than 80% of trading is done electronically.

              A stock exchange is a well-organized market where buyers and sellers gather to trade securities.

              In the past, traders and brokers met in the stock exchange building to trade stocks. Today, commercial transactions are conducted exclusively electronically, because stocks and other securities hardly exist in physical form. This modern virtual market has many advantages, it brings together market participants wishing to trade from all over the world at the same time and provides a high volume of trading, simply put liquidity. In addition, this market ensures that the prices of traded goods, i.e. financial instruments, are fair and transparent. Therefore, stock exchanges are strictly regulated by EU regulations, the Stock Exchange Act, and the Securities Trading Act.

              By the way, the actual buyers and sellers of securities usually do not come into direct contact with each other. Intermediaries, such as banks or brokers, do that.
