Zion Oil & Gas Rings the NASDAQ Bell

September 3, 2009 by  

NASDAQ 4Zion Chairman John Brown, CEO Richard Rinberg and company President Glen Perry got the NASDAQ market going on Wednesday by ringing the opening bell. The ‘opening bell’ ceremony signified the first day of trading for Zion Oil & Gas on the NASDAQ market under the ticker symbol ‘ZN’.

NASDAQ 2Zion’s move from the NYSE’s AMEX exchange to the NASDAQ Global exchange will give the company access to a much wider financial market.

Zion has demonstrated that they can compete in the global financial market by continuing to hold their stock value and raise significant capital in the midst of the worst financial melt down since the Great Depression. In short, people believe in Zion Oil and the financial world has taken notice.
