This is an active list of stock (and securities) exchanges in Africa with the intention of providing live trading information for the various securities on each exchange. The goal is to make easily accessible relevant stock updates and historical data analysis for the leading African exchanges. The platform is dedicated to African stock markets with the added functionality of access to historical data including share prices, market performances, trade volume, company profiles, etc. Research is carried out and sophisticated computer programs are written in order to make it possible to provide such in-depth, relevant analysis and updates on the listed markets. Currently, only a few exchanges are supported but more will be added as the earth continues to orbit the sun :)
The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE), incorporated in July 1989, is the principal stock exchange of Ghana located in the country capital Accra. The Exchange had its first trading activity on November 12, 1990. In April 1994, it converted into a public company limited by guarantee. Since then, the GSE's performance has varied greatly. All ordinary shares (with the exception of those of listed companies that have shares listed on other markets) are included in the main stock index, namely, the GSE Composite Index. This index is a market capitalization weighted index with a base value of 1,000 on December 31, 2010. The Exchange is governed by a council with representation from the listed companies, licensed dealing members, insurance companies, and the general public.
The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) is the leading securities exchange in East Africa. It was constituted in 1954 as a voluntary association of stockbrokers registered under the Societies Act. In 2008, the NSE All Share Index (NASI) was introduced as a market capitalization weighted index consisting of all the securities on the exchange, with a base value of 100 as of January 2008. Its attention and measure is therefore on the overall market capitalization rather than the price movements of select counters, effectively making it the benchmark index for the Kenyan stock market. The NSE is a member of the African Securities Exchanges Association and East African Securities Exchanges Association; also an affiliate member of the World Federation of Exchanges.
The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), founded in 1960 as the Lagos Stock Exchange, services the largest economy in Africa. It provides access to capital for Nigerian and international companies that take advantage of the capital market to fund their strategic business expansion. A registered company limited by guarantee, the NSE is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Nigeria and licensed under the Investments and Securities Act. All listings are included in the NSE All-Share Index, which was formulated in January 1984 with a base value of 100. Only ordinary shares are included in the computation of this index. The NSE is a founding member of the African Securities Exchanges Association and also a foundation member of the World Economic Forum.
The Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE) is the official stock exchange of Zimbabwe. It was formerly known as the Rhodesia Stock Exchange but got renamed when the country achieved independence in 1980. The exchange maintains two broad indices, namely, the Industrial Index and the Mining Index, both of which have a base value of 100 beginning February 2009. (The Industrial Index is regarded as the benchmark index.) The ZSE uses a call over system on its floors, and conducts a trading session every working day. Because of the country's hyperinflation, all share prices are quoted in United States cents. Trading starts from 08:00 to 09:30 GMT, Monday to Friday.

Keep up the good work Mike, you are onto something big.
I will advise you to not accept ads on your site. Keep information updated, build a bigger and wider interest. If you need financing, search for Venture Capitalists... but by all means don't accept Ads
Maybe in the far far future

You're right, Breeze; whenever money becomes the focus, quality is compromised. Thanks for your advice - I'll keep it in mind. And when I need financing, I'll be searching for you :)

Great site loads of information must say you've done a good job. Have a couple of suggestions. Would it be possible to add the company financials with an option of latest quarter to the yearly? What about more ratios like p/bv?
August 11, 2015 at 03:50 GMT
Surely, it's possible! I will be talking to some contacts to see how we can get the data integrated as soon as possible. Thanks for the suggestion; please keep them coming :)
