    The reason you're not getting any answers is that your question is too general and undefined. It would help to know under what context you are asking this question; you know, specifics.

    Almost all trade of stocks and Mutual Funds are in the Secondary Market. It's simply a market on which an investor purchases an asset from another investor rather than an issuing corporation.

    Investopedia Says: A good example (of a Secondary Market) is the New York Stock Exchange. Here all stock exchanges are part of the secondary market, as investors buy securities from other investors instead of an issuing company.

    So in the case of a mutual fund, which is generally a corporation, if they are buying stocks on the secondary market, but issueing them to you as part of the primary market (corpoation issuer), which is it, and why the hell does it matter?
