Financial Markets and Products

 

A financial market is where traders trade financial securities, commodities, and value at low transaction costs and at prices that reflect supply and demand. Financial “products” are contracts that can be negotiated on capital markets. Securities include stocks and bonds, and commodities include precious metals or agricultural products.
