The Stock Exchange Market is the central point for connecting the supply and demand for securities in order to conclude trading with securities. In other words, the Stock Exchange Market is a place where, on the basis of the supply and demand, the real market price of a particular security is formed. Accordingly, the Stock Exchange has no determination power in the turnover of securities, nor does it affect the sales of securities, it only reflects the overall supply and demand, and it is a mirror of the economic activities in a particular country.
During its years of existence, the Sarajevo Stock Exchange has upgraded the infrastructure and developed electronic trading systems. Today, SASE trades every day in the period from 10.00 am to 1.30 pm, in accordance with the development and market needs.
