Institute of Information Theories and Applications FOI ITHEA
The information domain is a recognised sphere for the influence, ownership, and control of information
and it's specifications, format, exploitation and explanation (Thompson, 1967). The article presents a description
of the financial information domain issues related to the organisation and operation of a stock market. We review
the strategic, institutional and standards dimensions of the stock market information domain in relation to the
current semantic web knowledge and how and whether this could be used in modern web based stock market
information systems to provide the quality of information that their stakeholders want. The analysis is based on
the FINE model (Blanas, 2003). The analysis leads to a number of research questions for future research.
