The Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (BCBA; Spanish: Bolsa de Comercio de Buenos Aires) is the organisation responsible for the operation of Argentina's primary stock exchange. Founded in 1854, is the successor of the "Banco Mercantil", created in 1822 by Bernardino Rivadavia.

Citing BCBA's self definition: "It is a self-regulated non-profit civil association. At its Council sit representatives of all different sectors of Argentina's economy."

The most important index of the Stock market is the MERVAL (from "MERcado de VALores", "stock market"), which includes the most important papers. Other indicators are "Burcap", "Bolsa General" and "M.AR.", and currency indicators "Indol" and "Wholesale Indol".
