Stock and Other Exchanges
This page has links to many of the world's stock and other major exchanges,
and links to other places to search. The page has had a
major rewrite in March 1997 and another rewrite in December 1997 as so
many more exchanges have come online during the last eighteen months, and
the standard of presentation has improved greatly.

a helpful regional directory of Australian brokers, and well-structured
introductory information which assumes that not everyone has used the

connection to handle

only sections of the reports appeared. It's better now (December 1997)
but still disappointing

Searching for more?
Several of the stock exchanges have pages with links to others,
the best I found were:
Jonathan Halsey also maintains a good
from around the World page and
IfBG also has links
to data from Stock Exchanges worldwide.
You can also search in Yahoo for any particular
Exchange or other Exchange.
FIBV (International Federation of Stock Exchanges)
has a good index with
clickable map and contact details
of most exchanges.
Federation of Euro-Asian Stock Exchanges and the
Federation of European Stock Exchanges both have
information about (but not WWW links to) their members.
Holt Report provides a daily
summary of leading indices for domestic US and overseas markets, as
well as currency and precious metals prices. Holt includes a link to
the NYSE quote server with a 15-minute delay. The report seems to provide
a lot of information for the US and the major overseas indices and currencies.
The PAWWS Financial
Network provides some information to registered
subscribers (registration is free) and there's a quote
server that provides some sort of ticker, but it's very US-based
and unintuitive to use.
serves "individual investors on the web with fast delayed stock and mutual fund quotes
and historical charts since 1993. All ... services are free to individual
investors". It covers US stocks only (I think) but doesn't seem to say so.
