Prague Stock Exchange

The Prague Stock Exchange (PSE) is one of the two organizers of the securities market in the Czech Republic. After a fifty-year break caused by World War II and the Communist regime, the Prague Stock Exchange was reopened in 1993. It is a continuation of Prague Commodity and Stock Exchange, which was founded in 1871.

The PSE is part of CEE Stock Exchange Group (CEESEG), whose members are also the other three Central European stock exchange markets, e.g. the Vienna Stock Exchange (Wiener Börse), Budapest Stock Exchange (Budapesti Értéktőzsde) and Ljubljana Stock Exchange (Ljubljanska borza). Trading on PSE is a open only to licensed dealers, who are also members of the stock exchange.

The official index of the Prague Stock Exchange is the PX index. It is a price index weighted by market capitalization, and composed of widely traded blue chips. The settlement of securities transactions is processed in T+2 time.

Stock exchange markets

Individual markets differ among themselves, in particular, the obligation to inform requirements for issuers or other authorized persons vary. Prime and Standard markets are regulated markets, the Start market is an unregulated market. Shares traded on Prime market must comply with the most stringent terms and conditions.


The Prime market is designed for trading the largest and most prestigious emissions of shares of Czech and foreign companies.


The Standard market is designed for trading large and prestigious emissions of shares of Czech and foreign companies. The shares, which are already traded on another regulated market within the EU, may be admitted to trading on the Start market without the issuer's consent.
