What is a stock exchange?

A Stock Exchange is a place where people can buy and sell stock in lots of forms (shares, depositary receipts, options, funds and combinations of these). Typical for a Stock Exchange is that everyone can join to buy or sell these financial pieces (named effects). It is characterised as a public space to be able to buy and sell.

Important to know about a Stock Exchange is that you are not allowed to set this up without permission and specific permits from the Authority of Financial Markets (AFM).
