was able to continue trading only a few days after the September 11 attack. The

The American Stock Exchange (AMEX) can trace its origins back to the late 1700's, when New York merchants began trading securities out-of-doors in lower Manhattan. These out-of-doors brokers, who became known as 'curbstone brokers' or 'curbstoners', were the predecessors of the brokers and specialists of the current AMEX.
In 1921 the curbstone brokers moved indoors to the present site of the AMEX, which was known as the New York Curb Market. In 1929 the Exchange changed its name to the New York Curb Exchange, and in 1953 changed it again to the American Stock Exchange
