WHAT IS THE BSTA?
In 1936 a small group of enterprising traders within the Boston securities community banded together to form an organization which is known today as the Boston Securities Traders Association. Their intent was to create a single organization which would provide a forum for regular communication within the trading community to improve the ethics, business standards and working environment for members. On January 29th of that year, at the Boston Stock Exchange, a constitution and by-laws were adopted and the Association’s first officers were elected. Today, the association continues to thrive. With approximately one hundred members at inception, the BSTA membership presently totals nearly five hundred strong and grows yearly. Currently the BSTA is the largest member affiliates of the Security Traders Association (STA), an international organization representing over 5,000 traders throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.
