Broadly speaking, financial markets are places where securities are traded between buyers and sellers. These include equities, bonds, currencies and options to name a few. Financial markets are a cornerstone for capitalist economies, providing both liquidity and capital formation for businesses. Through transactions in securities, investors are able to give their excess funds to borrowers who may need the funds, in exchange for returns on their investment. These securities are traded in a ‚Äúcentralized'' location. This can be a physical location like the New York Stock Exchange or more commonly, an electronic system or exchange. Financial markets are contingent on informational transparency and are subject to strong forces of supply and demand, that should result in fair and efficient prices that reflect the conditions of the overall market and economy.
