The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is the largest stock exchange in Africa. It has operated as a market place for the trading of financial products for nearly 120 years. In this time, the JSE has evolved from a traditional floor-based equities trading market to a modern securities exchange providing fully electronic trading, clearing and settlement in equities, financial and agricultural derivatives and other associated instruments and has extensive surveillance capabilities. The JSE is also a major provider of financial information.
The JSE Securities Exchange was ranked as the 24th largest derivatives exchange according to the 2018 annual volume survey released by the Futures Industry Association with 190 million contracts traded, down 50 percent from the previous year.
In 2001 the JSE acquires SAFEX, the South African Futures Exchange, and becomes the leader in both equities and equity and agricultural derivatives trading in the South African market. The JSE enters into a joint venture with GL Trade SA to provide an internationally accepted trading front-end to the equities market, known in South Africa as TALX.
