Where stocks trade

In North America, the securities markets are separated into two major market categories: primary and secondary. 

The Primary Market is where a company sells their shares to the public for the first time in an Initial Public Offering (IPO). The Secondary Market, which includes the stock exchanges and the Over-The-Counter (OTC) market, is where trades are made between investors in shares that are publicly traded.
