This Day in History March 8歷史上的今天 3月8日…

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was founded on March 8, 1817. Every day on the trading floor, stocks are bought and sold and huge amounts of money are moved between companies. The NYSE is located in the lower part of Manhattan in New York City, and there are four main trading rooms. During the workweek, the stock market opens at 9:30 AM with a burst of loud noise. Big screens show who is buying and who is selling. The people on the trading floor must make quick decisions. If they miss an opportunity, they could lose their jobs along with millions of dollars.
