Giant NZX stock ticker goes live in downtown Auckland
NZX has opened an electronic stock ticker, which stretches across the Zurich building in downtown Auckland (you'll have to walk around the corner if you come at it from Queen St; it's tucked on the side of the building facing onto Queen Elizabeth Square).
Opening the ticker, Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce noted the local exchange has seen a record $7 billion in capital raising this year.
The sign would remind Aucklanders of the role the NZX plays in our economy, and the job market, Mr Joyce said.
The electronic sign was made by NEC. NZX says it's the largest high defintion market display in the Southern Hemisphere.
