In 1890, the New York Stock Exchange secured a major interest in the Commercial Telegram Company and was reorganized as the New York Quotation Company. They made the New York Quotation Stock Ticker the exclusive Stock Ticker on Wall Street. The New York Quotation Stock Ticker was all around early Wall Street and served the members of the exchange until the 1929 stock market crash.
