Borsen is the stock exchange. It was started in 1819 as Christiania Bors. When it was first started there was not a stock exchange or an organized listing. It simply served as a place where investors would meet and auction ships, buy shares in ships, and buy foreign currencies, and commodities. The trading of stocks and bonds began in the year 1881.
In the year 1988, the Borsen stock exchange introduced a support system for trading that was electronic. This replaced the older auction model that had continuous trading of shares that were listed throughout the day.
The OBX index lists 25 companies that are the most liquid for the Oslo stock exchange. Each of the companies has their own index common. The exchange was a self-owned institute until the year 2001. It was then converted to a joint stock company. This offered shares for the public.
The Oslo Bors opens up at 9 am each morning and closes at 4:30. There are premarket sessions from 8:15 until 9 am every day. The normal trade sessions last from 9 until 4:20. The post market sessions last from 4:20 until 4:30 each day. Trading occurs Monday through Friday. It is closed on the weekends and on holidays that have been declared in advance by the exchange.
