Budapest Stock Exchange is the 2nd largest stock exchange in Central and Eastern Europe by market capitalization and liquidity. It is located at 7 Liberty Square, Budapest, Hungary, in the central business district of the city, known as District V. Previously, from 1864, during the Austro-Hungarian Empire it was located in the Budapest Stock Exchange Palace building, until a large trading floor was necessary. The exchange is controlled by listed issuers, by Hungarian private investors and by the central bank. The BSE is member of the World Federation of Exchanges and the Federation of European Securities Exchanges. The Budapest Stock Exchange accounts for all the turnover in the Hungarian market and a large share of the Central and Eastern European market. In 2007, BSE agreed to move to abolish floor trading, the trading today takes place via the Xetra system, with redundant floor brokers taking on the role of market-makers. Xetra is the reference market for all exchange trading in Hungarian equities and exchange traded funds. The prices on Xetra serve as the basis for calculating the BUX, the best-known Hungarian share index. Xetra has 60 per cent market share throughout Europe with over 200 trading participants from 16 European countries, plus Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates are connected via Xetra. Xetra trading at Budapest runs from 09:00 to 17:00 with closing auction from 17:00-17:05, and post-trading trading times until 17:20. BSE was introduced a pre market trading from 08:15 to 08:30 and an opening auction call from 08:30 to 09:00.

  • A building facing Freedom Square. There are a lot of buildings of a truly splendid luxury building in Budapest including this building. I think it represents the richness of Hungary from the 19th century to the 20th century.

  • This building is located close to Liberty Square, and is located on the Stock Exchange Palace. It seems to have been an exchange since the late 1800s, but I think that the standard of the building plan is the palace making. All the buildings in Budapest look like churches or palaces. And it's big and admirable, and I can't imagine how much it cost here.
