Whats the USA equivalent for Bovespa "Home Broker"? Direct-access trading?
Translating the abbreviation BOVESPA into "Sao Paulo State Stock Exchange" is a mistake, the Bovespa web site clearly states the Bovespa stands for ´Bolsa de Valores de São Paulo´ = ´São Paulo Stock Exchange´! see: http://www.bovespa.com.br/Bovespa/QuemSomos/historia_cidade.htm
I don't think it's a mistake translating the abbreviation BOVESPA into "Sao Paulo Stock Exchange" because it's exactly what the the abbreviatin means. Like "USA" in English or "EUA" in portuguese. Both are correct in its own language. Only proper names should not be translated. For instance, it would be a mistake to translate Maria into Mary or São Paulo into Saint Paul. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:33, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
A lot of BM&F info (list of commodities, history etc) is not reflected on this page. Shouldn't we resurrect the old BM&F page and then rename it to commodities division of BM&F Bovespa ? -- Nic Roets (talk) 23:11, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
There seems to be a mania for merging wikipedia articles whenever companies or entities buy out or merge with others. In the process a lot of information seems to be thrown out. Just because the BM&F merged with Bovespa doesn't mean its history aisre meaningless. Where was it? When was it founded? Was it large or small?
Are there standards for how to treat such historical entities? I noticed that the same thing was happening when I was looking at the history of banking in the US. Cellmaker (talk) 14:39, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Market hours are wrong. See http://www.bmfbovespa.com.br/en-us/regulation/trading-hours/trading-hours.aspx?aba=tabItem1&idioma=en-us for correct details. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:19, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
BOVESPA is the second largest stock market in the world by 'market value'?
I just removed a highly dubious claim stating that BOVESPA, Brazil's main bourse, is the second largest in the world by market capitalization. This claim was cited from a Brazilian newspaper, but no sources from the World Federation of Exchanges could support such a claim. In fact, the second largest stock exchange in the world at December of 2009 was the London SE Group, with market capitalization of US$ 3,453 billion - a lot bigger than BOVESPA's US$ 1,337 billion, as it is claimed in the article.
