Question: What Are Capital Markets?
Answer:

Capital Market Resources

A capital market is simply any market where a government or a company (usually a corporation) can raise money (capital) to fund their operations and long term investment. Selling bonds and selling stock are two ways to generate capital, thus bond markets and stock markets (such as the Dow Jones) are considered capital markets. Introduction to Capital Markets
