SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Rigged? Yes, the stock market is rigged. No surprise. Everybody knows that. He`s always been manipulated. There`s always manipulation. Starting with 24 stock traders met in 1792 under the Wall Street Tree Button. Its new auction system called NYSE. Partial contract, part of the monopoly, part of the conspiracy. Long before the One World Trade Center overlooked Lower Manhattan, an American sycamore or woodwood on Wall Street was the highest thing in the area and the mall.

225 years ago, on May 17, 1792, 24 brokers and traders under the same tree signed the so-called Buttonwood Agreement, which set the trading parameters in the first incarnation of the New York Stock Exchange. The Buttonwood Agreement is the founding document of today`s New York Stock Exchange and one of the most important financial documents in U.S. history. [2] The agreement organized securities trading in New York and was signed on May 17, 1792 between 24 brokers outside 68 Wall Street. According to legend, the signature took place under a platanus occidentalis, a wood tree, but this tree may never have existed. [3] The New York Stock Exchange celebrated the signing of this agreement on May 17, 1792 as its creation. [2] Certainly, the Wall Street NYSE conspiracy was manipulated in 1792. And it will be manipulated again in 2192. Insiders own the casino, they set the rules, they make the games. You lose. In short, the agreement had two provisions: 1) brokers had to behave only with each other, thus eliminating the incense, and 2) the commissions had to be 0.25%. It reads: Just over 200 years since traders first met under a button tree on Wall Street, the institution they founded, the New York Stock Exchange, has been acquired by an emerging electronic marketplace.

By closing the system, participants would be assured that they can trust each other and that the payments are rewarded and that the investments are legitimate. The agreement was an attempt to establish, after the financial panic of 1792, certain rules on which there were no rules or guarantees and many transactions were refused. The panic had been caused by the actions of speculator William Duer, who borrowed loans to do business until he realized he could no longer borrow. IT HAS has been an exceptionally long journey by financial market standards. A little more than 200 years since traders first met under a button tree on Wall Street, the institution they created, the New York Stock Exchange, was purchased by an emerging electronic marketplace, the IntercontintalExchange (ICE), which is nominally located in Atlanta, Georgia, but which is more specifically located in the electronic stratosphere. The Buttonwood Agreement was signed in 1792 between 24 Wall Street brokers and traders in New York to create a stock exchange. Rumor has it that the deal happened under a button tree marked the beginnings of the Wall Street investment community. The Economist, a London-based weekly, called its financial market columns under the deal.
