Booms & crashes – Securities tell the story of the stock exchange

Here we go again: Wild price swings on the stock exchange – both upward and downward – cause the protagonists of the financial industry and private investors to hold their breath.

The exhibition shows just how relevant financial and economic history is to our time. Wertpapierwelt in Olten will take you on a journey through 400 years of stock trading, as documented by approx. 90 securities of companies that "made history" in their day.

The exhibition does not solely target stock traders, who are not likely to take their eyes off the built-in stock market ticker near the entrance for long: It also hopes to attract novices and aspiring investors.
