Tips from locals
The New York Stock Exchange is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$19.3 trillion. The average daily trading value is approximately US$169 billion. It is the cradle of Wall Street and US market economy.
If you ever have the opportunity to walk the floor it is well worth it. There may no longer be the shouting and paper flying from decades ago, but still interesting to see the trading capital of the world and know you're right in the middle of it all.
A stay on wall street cannot go without a visit to the largest and most iconic stock exchanges in the world: New York Stock Exchange!
