Masterforex-V Names World's Biggest Exchanges In Terms Of Market Capitalization

Stock exchanges are known to be the catalyst of the economic conditions in a certain state or the entire world. Stock exchanges trade the stocks of most enterprises representing every economic sector. Speaking about the blue chips, these are the stocks of big-scale corporations listed on several exchanges simultaneously.

Capitalization Secrets of Financial World


What is the key thing we should focus on when it comes to comparing stock exchanges? This is its market capitalization (or market cap for short). This indicator measures the total value of all the stocks traded on a certain exchange. If a certain stock is gaining value, this indicates the success of the company. The same holds true for a couple of stocks. However, the total market cap of an exchange is a more objective indicator in this case since a couple of stocks cannot influence the market cap of a big-scale exchange to a great extent if hundreds and thousands of other stocks are listed on this exchange as well, Masterforex-V Academy experts say.
However, if an exchange starts seeing its market cap growing rapidly, this indicates a major economic uptrend. And vice versa, a sharp drop in the market cap indicates an economic crisis.
Stock exchanges trade stocks, bonds, options, ETFs and other derivatives. They represent a number of industries like finances, transportation, insurance, oil production, IT, electronics, food and beverages, healthcare, banking, and so much more.
