    Sorry, it's "on" the NYSE.

    Prepositions don't make any sense.

    I've heard someone saying:

    "bonds are traded in the "over the counter market" ". Does the same logic of listed "on" applies here. Should he have said: "bonds are traded on the over the counter market"?

    Hi thomasRavenelli,
    I agree that "listed on the NYSE" is the preferred choice, but this is a very minor point. No one would think any less of you for using "in" instead.

    I think that "in" might be used instead of "on" when talking about a market rather than an exchange. But again, it's not a difference that's meaningful to most people.
