With uncertainty of Greece's future in the Eurozone, China's stock market crash, and United Airlines grounding flights due to computer malfunctions, it's been a pretty chaotic week. To add to that list, the New York Stock Exchange halted trading for several hours due to technical difficulties. With the NYSE's bump in the road earlier this week, we decided to check Quant Ratings for exchanges to buy. Here are some of the best exchanges TheStreet Quant Ratings says you should consider looking at. Number 4 is NASDAQ OMX Group. With a 'B' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. 3rd is, CBOE Holdings. This rating is an 'A-.' CBOE thrives in its expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. 2nd is CME Group. This too is an 'A-' rating. The company flourishes in its revenue growth and solid stock price performance. Number 1 is Intercontinental Exchange. With an 'A+' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its revenue growth and solid stock price performance. TheStreet Ratings are algorithmic stock picks based on 32 major data points. S&P 500 stocks rated 'buy' yielded a 16-and-a-half-percent return in 2014, beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by more than 300 basis points.
