  • What is the Back Story of the NYSE?

    The NYSE was established in 1792 by 24 stockbrokers and merchants who met under a Buttonwood tree on Wall Street and signed an agreement that created the New York Stock & Exchange Board. The agreement eliminated auctioneers, bound the members to deal only with each other and limited commissions to just 0.25%. In 1863, the organization drafted a constitution and became the members-only NYSE until it went public in 2006.
