Equity Market

Definition:

It's just a market where equities are traded like marbles (or kidneys on eBay). If you want to buy or sell stocks or ownership in companies, you're going to be headed to the equity market. 

Example

NASDAQ is an equity market. So is the New York Stock Exchange. Nothin' fancy.
