The Electronic Board
Category: Beginner Posted on: September 17, 2011 by: pseacademy_administrator Comments: 0 Attachments: 0

The Electronic Board, the center of attraction inside the trading floor of the Exchange, displays all current stock prices, volume, and other relevant information. All prices shown on the electronic board are intraday values.

At present, the PSE maintains two trading floors—one in Pasig City and another in its head office in Makati City.  Under the "one-price, one-market" system, the electronic boards in these two t
rading floors display identical trading transactions.

So what do the numbers and columns on the board mean? Though most are easily understandable, some may be confusing for a stock market newbie.

Here is a review of the common numbers in the stock quotes and what they mean.
