Exchanges are known by various codes. Knowing their codes is crucial for linking company tickers to exchanges.

This proposal is for the "common" code used often (eg NYSE, NASDAQ, etc)

@Vladimir Alexiev: Hi - in principle this seems like a good idea, but it's a little concerning that there's no standard source for this. Can you describe a scenario or two where you think this will be useful? It's the combination of exchange and stock ticker that is needed to create a link, so it would need to be some sort of external application I guess? ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:51, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Unless others say otherwise, then I'm withdrawing this proposal --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 11:56, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Using code (P3295) seems fine to me also. ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:21, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
