Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “NASDAQ” The NASDAQ is a global electronic marketplace for buying and selling securities, as well as the benchmark index for U.S. technology stocks. NASDAQ was created by the National Association of Securities Dealers to enable investors to trade securities on a computerized, speedy and transparent system, and commenced operations on February 8, 1971. The NASDAQ computerized trading system was initially devised as an alternative to the inefficient “specialist” system, which had been the prevalent model for almost a century. The rapid evolution of technology has made the NASDAQ’s electronic trading model the standard for markets worldwide. As a leader in trading technology from the outset, it was only fitting that the world’s technology giants chose to list on the NASDAQ in their early days. As the technology sector grew in prominence in the 1980s and 1990s, the NASDAQ became the most widely followed proxy for this sector.

History

1971–1999

"Nasdaq" was initially an acronym for the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations.[4] It was founded in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD),[5] which divested itself of Nasdaq in a series of sales in 2000 and 2001. The Nasdaq Stock Market is owned and operated by Nasdaq, Inc., the stock of which was listed on its own securities exchange on July 2, 2002, under the ticker symbol NDAQ.

The Nasdaq Stock Market began trading on February 8, 1971. It was the world's first electronic stock market.[5] At first, it was merely a “quotation system” and did not provide a way to perform electronic trades.[6][not in citation given] The Nasdaq Stock Market helped lower the spread (the difference between the bid price and the ask price of the stock) but was unpopular among brokerages which made much of their money on the spread.

The Nasdaq Stock Market eventually assumed the majority of major trades that had been executed by the over-the-counter (OTC) system of trading, but there are still many securities traded in this fashion. As late as 1987, the Nasdaq exchange was still commonly referred to as "OTC" in media reports[7] and also in the monthly Stock Guides (stock guides and procedures) issued by Standard & Poor's Corporation.[citation needed]

Over the years, the Nasdaq Stock Market became more of a stock market by adding trade and volume reporting and automated trading systems. It was also the first stock market in the United States to trade online, highlighting Nasdaq-traded companies and closing with the declaration that the Nasdaq Stock Market is "the stock market for the next hundred years". The Nasdaq Stock Market attracted new growth companies, including Microsoft, Apple, Cisco, Oracle and Dell, and it helped modernize the IPO.

Its main index is the NASDAQ Composite, which has been published since its inception. However, its exchange-traded fund tracks the large-cap NASDAQ-100 index, which was introduced in 1985 alongside the NASDAQ 100 Financial Index, which tracks the largest 100 companies in terms of market capitalization.

In 1992, the Nasdaq Stock Market joined with the London Stock Exchange to form the first intercontinental linkage of securities markets.[8] The National Association of Securities Dealers spun off the Nasdaq Stock Market in 2000 to form a publicly traded company.

The NASDAQ Composite index spiked in the late 1990s and then fell sharply as a result of the dot-com bubble.

On March 10, 2000, the NASDAQ Composite peaked at 5,132.52, but fell to 3227 by April 17,[9] and in the following 30 months fell 78% from its peak.[10]

In 2006, the status of the Nasdaq Stock Market was changed from a stock market to a licensed national securities exchange.[11]

In 2007, Nasdaq merged with OMX, a leading exchange operator in the Nordic countries, expanded its global footprint, and changed its name to the NASDAQ OMX Group.[12]

To qualify for listing on the exchange, a company must be registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), must have at least three market makers (financial firms that act as brokers or dealers for specific securities) and must meet minimum requirements for assets, capital, public shares, and shareholders.

In February 2011, in the wake of an announced merger of NYSE Euronext with Deutsche Börse, speculation developed that NASDAQ OMX and Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) could mount a counter-bid of their own for NYSE. NASDAQ OMX could be[when?] looking to acquire the American exchange's cash equities business, ICE the derivatives business. At the time, "NYSE Euronext’s market value was $9.75 billion. Nasdaq was valued at $5.78 billion, while ICE was valued at $9.45 billion."[13] Late in the month, Nasdaq was reported to be considering asking either ICE or the Chicago Mercantile Exchange to join in what would probably have to be, if it proceeded, an $11–12 billion counterbid.[14]

The European Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System (EASDAQ) was founded as a European equivalent to the Nasdaq Stock Market. It was purchased by NASDAQ in 2001 and became NASDAQ Europe. Operations were shut down, however, as a result of the burst of the dot-com bubble. In 2007, NASDAQ Europe was revived as Equiduct, and is currently[when?] operating under Börse Berlin.[15]

On June 18, 2012, Nasdaq OMX became a founding member of the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative on the eve of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).[16]

In November 2016, Nasdaq Chief Operating Officer Adena Friedman was promoted to the role of CEO, becoming the first woman to run a major exchange in the U.S.[17] In 2016, Nasdaq earned $272 million in listings-related revenues.[18]

Quote availability

Nasdaq quotes are available at three levels:

  • Level 1 shows the highest bid and lowest ask—inside quote.
  • Level 2 shows all public quotes of market makers together with information of market dealers wishing to buy or sell stock and recently executed orders.[19]
  • Level 3 is used by the market makers and allows them to enter their quotes and execute orders.[20]

Trading schedule

The Nasdaq Stock Market sessions eastern time are:

4:00 am to 9:30 am premarket session

9:30 am to 4:00 pm normal trading session

4:00 pm to 8:00 pm postmarket session[21]

Market tiers

The Nasdaq Stock Market has three different market tiers:

  • Capital Market (small cap) is an equity market for companies that have relatively small levels of market capitalization. Listing requirements for such "small cap" companies are less stringent than for other Nasdaq markets that list larger companies with significantly higher market capitalization.[22]
  • Global Market (mid cap) is made up of stocks that represent the Nasdaq Global Market. The Global Market consists of 1,450 stocks that meet Nasdaq's strict financial and liquidity requirements, and corporate governance standards. The Global Market is less exclusive than the Global Select Market.[23]
  • Global Select Market (NASDAQ-GS large cap) is a market capitalization-weighted index made up of US-based and international stocks that represent the Global Select Market Composite. The Global Select Market consists of 1,200 stocks that meet Nasdaq's strict financial and liquidity requirements and corporate governance standards. The Global Select Market is more exclusive than the Global Market. Every October, the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department reviews the Global Market Composite to determine if any of its stocks have become eligible for listing on the Global Select Market.[24][25]

Average annualized growth rate

As of June 2015, the Nasdaq Stock Market had an average annualized growth rate of 9.24% since its opening in February 1971. Since the end of the recession in June 2009 however, it has increased by 18.29% per year.[26]
