What are Primary & Secondary Markets?

8 Jan 2016 | 12:45PM

As a new investor in the stock market Vinod wants to understand the Primary & Secondary Markets.

His friend Asish - an active trader with Angel Broking, explained:

Primary Market

The primary market is where the stocks are created & secondary market is where stocks are traded.

When a company decides to go public for the first time by raising an IPO, it is done in the primary market. Here a company sells its shares directly to the investors.

Understanding Primary Stock Market

After the shares are bought for the first time in the primary market, traders buy and sell these shares among themselves in the secondary market.

Secondary Market

In the secondary market, the issuing company is not involved directly in any transaction.

So, in the primary market Vinod will buy shares directly from a company while in the secondary market, Vinod will buy or sell shares to another trader.

Understanding Secondary Stock Market

With a better understanding of share market investment, Vinod is now, ready to trade with Angel Broking as his trusted partner.
