Toronto Stock Exchange

From Traderpedia

Definition:
The best known of Canada's stock exchanges.


The TSX is largest stock exchange in Canada and lists a wide section of stocks from both Canada and the USA.

The exchange has been running in its most basic form since 1852, when it was first formed by a group of businessmen, although it officially became the Toronto Stock Exchange a few years later, in 1861.

It is the sole Canadian exchange for the trading of senior equities. The Montreal (MX) exchange now takes responsibility for the trading of derivatives.

More recently, in 2002, the TSX acquired the Canadian Venture Exchange (CDNX), and became known as the TSX Venture Exchange.

The TSX is the fourth most active exchange in North America, after the NYSE,NASDAQ and CBOT exchanges.
