Introduction to Stock Exchanges

When you think of a marketplace for financial instruments, you probably immediately think of stock exchanges - the topic of this short.
Overview

Stock exchanges were created as a venue for buyers and sellers to trade financial assets. As these exchanges became more sophisticated, the responsibility to ensure fair dealing, transparency, liquidity, validity, and routine disclosure of issuers have also been put on stock exchanges.
