Co-founder of the stock index firm EQM Indexes and Scripps Ranch resident Jane Edmondson was honored with ringing the opening bell on the NASDAQ exchange in Times Square, NYC late last year. The timing was to start the 2017 holiday online shopping season for their index, the EQM Online Retail Index, which tracks online retail stocks such as Amazon, Netflix, and Priceline.

Jane started trading stocks as a hobby when she was just 13. She was able to fulfill her lifelong dream of not just ringing the bell, but also being on stage in the NASDAQ studio and appearing on the digital billboard in Times Square.

“I am so happy I got to experience it. It was one for the bucket list for sure,” said Jane.
