Organizations that facilitate the buying and selling of stock are known as stock exchanges. Some of these are actual physical facilities, whereas others are primarily computer networks. The most famous of the physical variety is the New York Stock Exchange. Stocks that don't meet the listing requirements of an exchange are sold over the counter (OTC). Together, the various stock exchanges around the world and the OTC market make up the overall stock market.
Unlike the stock market, in which most buying and selling is coordinated by organizations such as the NYSE and NASDAQ, most trading in the bond market is over the counter, taking place outside organized exchanges. Consequently, the bond market is much more diffuse and decentralized than the stock market, and the processes for buying and selling depends on the type of bond. In the primary market, new issues of bonds can be purchased. In the secondary market, bonds are traded through a wide variety of brokers, agents, and dealers.
