The equity market is a place where companies' stocks and shares are traded. Either over the counter or on stock exchanges, equities are traded in an equity market. An equity market, also known as a stock market or a share market, allows sellers and buyers to trade equity or shares on the same platform.
The shares given to ordinary investors through initial public offerings (IPOs) are known as the primary equity market. The shares of a firm are listed on the stock exchange once the initial public offering (IPO) is completed. The NSE and BSE are the two primary stock exchanges that facilitate stock trading.
If you missed out on buying stock in a firm during its initial public offering (IPO), you can buy and sell shares in the
secondary market. Here, you decide on an entrance and exit point for your investment.
