Dealer Market

A market where dealers are assigned for specific securities. The dealers create liquid markets by purchasing and selling against personal inventory.

Unlike auction markets, the benefit of this type of market is the rapid access that investors have to buyers and sellers of a particular security. The best example of a dealer market is the Nasdaq.
