What is a Market

Market News Gives An outlook of where the Market has Been and where  It appears   to be Going  Attempt to Show a path in the Best Possible Direction  A market is a medium that allows buyers and sellers of a specific good or service to interact in order to facilitate an exchange. This type of market may either be a physical marketplace where people come together to exchange goods and services in person, as in a bazaar or shopping center, or a virtual market wherein buyers and sellers do not interact, as in an online market.

Markets may come in the form of physical locations where transactions are made, which may exist as anything from thrift or boutique stores selling individual items to wholesale markets selling goods to other distributors. Yet, markets do not necessarily need to be a physical meeting place. Internet-based stores and auction sites are all markets in which transactions can take place entirely online and where the two parties do not ever need to physically meet. Technically speaking, a market is any medium through which two or more parties can engage in an economic transaction, even those that do not necessarily need to involve money. A market transaction may involve goods, services, information, currency or any combination of these things passing from one party to another in exchange for one of these or another combination.

Because of the reduced position of government in a free market economy, forces within the market often gain power over the economy instead. Without certain regulations, this can lead to monopolies, monopsonies, oligopolies or oligopsonies, which may distort the forces of supply and demand – and thus price as well – within the economy in question. In certain conditions, such situations may result in certain negative externalities, such as pollution and other forms of environmental degradation. Such situations may also have the additional effect of reducing the efficiency and productivity of processes within the market.
