How do you define the word market?

I hear the word market used in a variety of ways. For example,
  • "Stock market, futures market, currency market." In this case it represent an entire asset class.
  • "You can apply a strategy to multiple futures markets." In this case, it seems to mean a unique instrument.
  • "It's a choppy market." or "This strategy works best in a bullish market." In this case, market describes the nature of price movements.

Is one of these uses more correct than the other? How do you avoid confusion when talking or posting?

I'll give you my interpretation - market is colloquially used as an umbrella term for all the examples you posted above and more. There is a market definition on Wikipedia that may help with the specifics but, in general, a market in trading terms is one where there is a demand and an offer. This could be striclty related to financial markets but, if you think about it, the housing market is no different, nor is it the fish market down the street.

I am sure there are more correct ways to separate terms, such as calling futures, stocks, Forex, etc. asset classes and so on but trying to change that would be like trying to correct corporate people that talk about Information Security calling it just "cyber", or correct people who mistake "its" for "it's" and viceversa. It's difficult to do.

I think you might be over thinking it a bit. A market is just a "place" where business transactions take place. Someone or some entity buys and another similar one sells.....again and again etc etc..........................................

To characterize a market as something like "bullish" is just offering context.

It doesn't matter what is being bought or sold.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
