Milan’s Borsa di Commercio (Commodities Exchange) opened under a vice-royal decree on 16
January 1808 and operated under public ownership until 1998.
It was sold to a consortium of banks, and operated under a joint-stock holding company between
2 January 1998 and on 1 October 2007, when it was merged with the London Stock Exchange in
an all-share takeover.
Borsa Italiana has managing responsibility for Italy's derivatives markets (IDEM and MIF) and
its fixed income market (MOT). On the MOT (Electronic Government Bond and Securities
Market), buy and sell contracts are traded on government securities and nonconvertible bonds;
the EuroMOT is the Euro-Bond Electronic Market that trades Eurobonds, bonds from foreign
issuers and asset-backed securities.
The exchange has pre-market sessions from 08:00am to 09:05am, normal trading sessions from
09:05am to 05:35pm and post-market sessions from 06:00pm to 08:30pm on all days of the week
except Saturdays, Sundays and holidays declared by the Exchange in advance.
Borsa Italiana organises and manages the Italian stock market with the participation of nearly
130 domestic and international brokers who operate in Italy or from abroad through remote
membership, using a completely electronic trading system for the real-time execution of trades.
In addition, it performs organisational, commercial and promotional activities aimed at
developing high value-added services for the financial community.
The stock market is divided into five parts. The electronic share market (MTA) trades Italian
shares, convertible bonds, and warrants; the covered warrants market is an electronic share
market. The STAR (Segment for High Requirement Shares) market is within the MTA and
includes companies capitalised from 40 million to 100 million Euro that are already listed and
traded in more traditional sectors. Nuovo Mercato is dedicated to innovation-driven companies.
Stocks, bonds, warrants, and options not admitted to the official exchange are traded on Mercato
Ristretto. Premi Market is for premium contracts on stock exchange products. The after hours
market enables trading of financial instruments after the daytime session closes.
