Principal Market

The primary exchange on which a security is traded. For example, most blue chip companies list their principal market as the New York Stock Exchange because it is a large exchange with a high trading volume. Nevertheless, these stocks can and do trade on other exchanges, as well as in the over-the-counter market.
