The stock market is part of the capital market that brings the demand for and the supply of capital together. Suppliers of capital are those who are looking for a profitable use for their savings. Representing this group are often financial intermediaries such as banks or funds, which make the pooled financial resources available to the capital market. Demanders of capital are usually companies or other institutions that need funds to finance investment projects.
The stock market is a state-regulated market in which the framework conditions are regulated by the sovereign. The regulation of national stock markets is essentially the responsibility of the respective national institutions, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Their tasks include the control of trading and compliance within the legal framework with the purpose of protecting shareholders and preventing illegal practices.
With a few exceptions, shares are nowadays generally not traded physically but deposited in electronic form with so-called custodians. Shares are acquired via banks or brokers with which investors have their share accounts. Their trading systems are linked to the stock exchanges via electronic data processing systems, which are then used to process buy and sell orders (securities orders) from market participants.
There are numerous stock exchanges and brokers, and not every stock can be purchased through every broker or stock exchange. Where the particular share can be traded is determined when the share is issued. The stock market is therefore not a centrally organized institution, but consists of many trading houses and institutions located in very different places and interconnected via electronic systems. Together with the market participants, they constitute what is commonly understood as the stock market.
