Market can have several meanings in the financial world.

Generally, it is defined as a medium through which assets are traded, with their value determined by supply and demand.

“Market” can refer to:

  • A broad grouping of assets (like the technology market) or an index
  • A place – physical or nominal – that facilitates buying and selling of assets
  • The price movements of financial assets as a whole (“the markets” or “financial markets”).
  • The price at which an asset is being traded (the market price).
