No records of the group's transactions have survived. On October 25, 1861, twenty-four men gathered at the Masonic Hall to create the Toronto Stock Exchange. The exchange was incorporated by an act of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1878.The TSX grew continuously in size and in shares traded, save for a three-month period in 1914 when the exchange was shut down for fear of financial panic due to World War I. In 1934, the Toronto Stock Exchange merged with its key competitor, the Standard Stock and Mining Exchange. The merged markets kept the Toronto Stock Exchange name. The TSX opened its new trading floor and headquarters in an Art Deco building on Bay Street in 1937. In 1977, the TSX introduced CATS (Computer Assisted Trading System), an automated trading system that started to be used for the quotation of less liquid equities.
