The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) is the only centralized securities market in Taiwan. It was founded in 1961 and began its operations a year later. Apart from stocks it also offers trading in other securities such as exchange-traded funds, government bonds and convertible bonds. The exchange works with a fully automated trading system since 1993 and is headquartered in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. It has about 900 listed companies and a market capitalization of around 879$ billion.
Among the listings are well-known and actively traded companies such as Taiwan Semiconductor, Foxconn Technology, Chunghwa Telecom, MediaTek and Chang Hwa Bank. The main stock index is the Taiwan Capitalization Weighted Stock Index (TAIEX), often referred to as the Taiwan Weighted. It tracks the performance of most TWSE stocks and is a weighted average, so stocks with a higher market cap have a bigger impact. TradingView has tools like a stock screener and quotes dashboard to help traders find the best opportunities on the stock market of Taiwan.
