During the American Revolution, the coloniel Government needed money to fund its wartimes operations
They did this by selling bonds bonds are pieces of paper a person buys for a set price, knowing that after a certain amount of time they can trade their bond for profit (3) Along with bonds, the first of the nation's banks started to sell parts or shares of their own companies to people in order to raise money. Sold off part of the company to whoever wanted to buy it. (3) Wall Street bacme a major place for these transactions to happen
1792-24 men signed agreement that started NYSE
Agreed to sell shares or parts of companies between themselves and charge people fees to buy and sell for them (3) Found a place at 40 Wall Street in New York
As they grew they eventually moved into what is now the New York Stock Exchange (3) In the 1900's the Industrial Revolution caused a boom in Wall Street. Everyone Wanted to be a part of it (3)
The NYSE was no longer the only place to buy and sell stocks. People would trade outside on the curbs. (3) These "curb trades" eventually became the American Stock Exchange.

(5) In the 1990's NASDAQ was seen as competition for the NYSE
1994 NASDAQ beat NYSE in annual shares traded (4) In 1998 NASDAQ and AMEX merged
still operated as two separate exchanges but were better able to compete with the NYSE. (4) The Stock Market and People Occupations
Stock Broker- a person that buys and sells stocks at the stock market is called a stock broker. A stock broker needs people to buy stocks so they can get their payment, which is called a commission. The better salesperson the Stock Broker is the better living the Broker will make.
Trader- negotiates buyers and sellers and stock sales. They most often work for brokerage houses, investment companies, retirement funds and other finacial organizations (6, 2)
The Stock Market Increases Wealth among people who buy and sell stocks. There is not really a direct relation to the stock market and any ordinary person who doesn't have stocks. However, the Stock Market can contribute to things such as retirement. (2) Works Cited
