American Stock Exchange

Until 1921, the American Stock Exchange was known as the "Curb Exchange" since the trading actually took place in the streets of Manhattan. The American Stock Exchange, or AMEX, lists over 900 issues on its primary list. The AMEX specializes in stocks that do not meet the NYSE's requirements.
