The number of stocks in the stock market can vary as it is constantly changing. It depends on the specific stock market being referred to, as different countries have their own stock exchanges. Additionally, the number of stocks can also change due to new companies being listed, mergers and acquisitions, and companies being delisted. At any given time, there are typically thousands of stocks listed on major stock exchanges around the world.

The number of stocks in the stock market can vary over time and depends on the specific stock market you are referring to. For example, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ are two major stock exchanges in the United States.


As of April 2021, the NYSE listed around 2,800 companies, while NASDAQ listed around 3,300 companies. These numbers can change due to the addition or removal of stocks from the exchanges.


Furthermore, there are numerous other stock exchanges worldwide, such as the London Stock Exchange, Tokyo Stock Exchange, Shanghai Stock Exchange, etc., each with its own list of companies.


Therefore, the precise number of stocks in the global stock market is difficult to determine as it constantly fluctuates.
