You’ve probably seen it on TV or the big screen…

The clanging bell, computer screens and stock tickers, and an apparent mess of people milling around, talking, typing and sometimes shouting. To an outsider, that’s how the largest stock exchange in the world, the New York Stock Exchange, appears. But while most people are familiar with the NYSE, what they don’t understand is how all that commotion relates to the simple, silent stock purchases we so often make through a computer screen. In fact, what happens between the moment you click “Buy” and the time that stock lands in your brokerage account isn’t just a technicality – it’s one instance of how the whole stock market works.  And it’s something every investor worth her salt should understand.

FOX Business Network anchor Nicole Petallides spends every business day reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. We caught up with her for an inside look into the very real place where a large portion of the world’s trades take place. Check it out in my new post on GoldenGirlFinance.com.
