The building in Sofocleous Street that used to accommodate the Athens Exchange until 2007
The Athens Stock Exchange started trading in 1876. Its day to day running has been assigned to Hellenic Exchanges - Athens Stock Exhange S.A., whose shares are listed on the exhange (Athex: EXAE). The derivatives market started trading in August 1999. In 2002 the Athens Stock Exchange and the Athens Derivatives Exchange merged to form the Athens Stock Exchange.
Until 2007, the exchange was located on Sofocleous Street, in the central business district of Athens. For this reason the Exchange and Sofocleous St became synonymous with each other.

The exchange's trading hours are from 10:00am to 05:20pm Monday to Friday, and is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays declared by the Exchange in advance.
