transparent market

(redirected from Transparent Markets)

Transparent Market

Any market where all relevant information is fully and freely available to the public. Nearly every analyst agrees that transparent markets are desirable and lead to greater efficiency. Laws and regulations exist in most jurisdictions encouraging or mandating transparency. For example, the SEC requires disclosure forms declaring a great many different actions when or immediately after they occur. Likewise, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is designed to increase transparency in accounting. A minority view holds that these laws and regulations intended to create transparent markets in fact reduce efficiency. Others contend that markets are efficient with or without transparency. See also: Efficient Market Hypothesis.
