Earlier this week, our very own President and CEO, Chad Carlson, joined the prestigious list of celebrities and executives to stand behind the New York Stock Exchange podium to close the bell.
Background on New York Stock Exchange Opening & Closing Bell
The New York Stock Exchange’s (NYSE) opening and closing bells mark the start and end of each trading day. The opening bell is rung at 9:30 a.m. ET to mark the start of the day's trading session; and at 4:00 p.m. ET the closing bell is rung and trading for the day stops.
Interesting Facts on the NYSE Bell:
A bell has been used to mark the start and end of each trading day for over 100 years, and the gavel has always been used in conjunction with the closing bell.
Each of the four trading areas of the NYSE has its own bell.
The first guest to ring the opening bell was Leonard Ross, in 1956. The 10-year-old had won a television quiz show answering questions about the stock market.
