Market can have several meanings within investments. 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 trading and movements of financial assets as a whole (‘the markets’, or ‘financial markets’)
- the price at which an asset is being traded (the market price)
