The current financial crisis had an important impact on economies all over the world. Romania – one of the Eastern European countries, considered just one year ago to have a good growth potential – is also absorbing the shock waves of this crisis. As expected, the first to respond to those shocks was the Bucharest Stock Exchange. The paper will present Bucharest Stock Exchange evolution before the crisis started to manifest and will try to identify the main factors which influenced its explosive growth; the paper will continue with the investigation of the current financial crisis influences on Bucharest Stock Exchange – with an emphasis over the factors which might have deepen the descendent trend for the Romanian stock exchange market. The final part will present the effects of the current financial crisis on the future development of Bucharest Stock Exchange, taking into consideration the position of the Romanian capital market in Eastern Europe.
