Nasdaq is an over the counter market where securities are traded. Dealers hold inventories of stocks and quote the price they will pay for one share of a stock (the bid price) and the price they will sell the share (ask price). People then buy or sell the stock from or to the dealers.
NASD = National Associateion of Securities Dealers
