NASDAQ History

Founded February 8, 1971, NASDAQ was the world's first electronic stock market. At creation, NASDAQ stood for National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations. Initially, NASDAQ offered only quotations, but eventually provided electronic trading. The exchange was responsible for most of the over-the-counter (OTC) trades.

As NASDAQ added automated trading systems and reporting, the exchange became more of a stock market, becoming the first in the United States to offer online trading.[2]

In 2000, NASDAQ became a for-profit company, owned by shareholders.[3] Later, in 2007, NASDAQ combined with OMX, a Swedish exchange, to compete in the global market. That same year, NASDAQ acquired the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the oldest exchange in America.

NASDAQ is now registered as a licensed national securities exchange.[4]
