Summary and Popularity of Site
The London Stock Exchange is one of the largest exchanges in the world. It was founded in 1801 and has listings from overseas companies as well as ones from the UK. It is also the home of the various FSTE indexes and is ranked just outside the top 20,000 most visited sites in the world and just outside the top 2000 in the UK*.
The homepage shows visitors a beautiful picture of the city overlooking the Thames and gives all the figures for the FTSE indexes. Its sub sections include Statistics, Prices & news as well as Traders & Brokers. The page also gives links to lists of the rules and regulations that traders and brokers have to follow as well as information on how to become a member. The foot of the page offers visitors more or less the same choices as seen on the top of the site.
This site tells you everything you need to know about the stock exchange and is a statisticians and investors dream. When you click on to the Prices & news section you are met with the option to look at all stocks on the exchange as well as various indices from the FTSE 100, 250 and 350. Certainly, anyone who is not a serious investor will soon find themselves in way over their head as the complex information spews forth. If you run a firm and wish to know how to become a member, the site gives you all the pertinent European Economic Area requirements.
Positives and Summary
Like any site that deals in complex financial matters, if you know your way around the world of finance, you will have no problems on this site. Their sections and sub sections are clearly marked and ensure ease of access for professional investors and business people.
As one might expect, the articles on the site are not designed for the novice reader. For example, the ‘Investor Relations A Practical Guide’ piece is a booklet that is 72 pages long, one wonders what a comprehensive guide would look like! If you are intent on learning more about the workings of the stock exchange, then this site can offer you plenty of advice and assistance. If you have no real interest in going into the underbelly of the UK stock market, then this site is no place for you.
