History

The New York Stock Exchange was founded in May 1792 when the Buttonwood Agreement as signed. The Buttonwood Agreement was signed by 24 stockbrokers who established a set up rules for organized securities trading in New York. Before this agreement, securities were sold auctioneers rather than on an organized market.
