Bolsa de Valores do Rio de Janeiro

A Bolsa de Valores do Rio de Janeiro (BVRJ), localizada na cidade do Rio de Janeiro, foi uma das primeiras bolsas de valores a entrar em operação no Brasil, ao final do período colonial.[1] A partir de 2000, com a transferência da negociação com ações para a Bolsa de Valores de São Paulo, ela passou a negociar apenas títulos públicos e, em 2002, foi incorporada pela BM&F(Bolsa de Mercadorias e Futuros). Em 2008 foi criada a Bolsa de Valores, Mercadorias e Futuros - BM&FBOVESPA S.A, uma das maiores bolsas de valores do mundo, com a integração da BM&F S.A. e da Bovespa Holding S.A.
