JSE Limited

Definition

A stock exchange based in Sandton, South Africa where stocks are purchased and sold. It is the largest stock exchange on the entire African continent and is primarily dominated by mining companies. This is due to the fact that it was originally established in 1887 by the mining industry as a way to raise funds. The JSE Equities Trading (JET) electronic system removed the need for a trading floor. Hours of operation are from 9am to 5pm local time, Monday through Friday. Previously called the JSE Securities Exchange and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
