Full Definition of Debt Market


The debt market is the market for trading debt securities. The debt market thus involves corporate bonds, government bonds, municipal bonds, negotiable certificates of deposit, and various money market investments. The debt market also includes individual loans bought from lenders and often packaged together in large amounts. The debt market includes the primary market, where debts are first sold to the public; and the secondary market, where investors sell debts to each other afterwards. On the secondary debt market, debts can be sold on exchanges or on the over-the-counter market, but most are traded over the counter. Many debts are also packaged together into mutual funds. There are publications that publish the daily prices of bonds on the debt market.
