Stock ticker

Stock ticker, teletype device for recording the buying and selling of stock. The machine prints transactions on a continuous strip of tape, with symbols to refer to the names of the corporations. First used by the New York Stock Exchange in 1867, the stock ticker became widely used during the early 20th century. It is now almost obsolete, having been largely replaced by electronic devices.
