    Default Is it on the black Market ???

    Hi,
    Would you please tell me which one is the correct usage of the preposition , to say "sell things on the black market ."
    or "sell things in the black market" ????
    I am rather confused noticing that Oxford dictionary prefers (on), While i find most used in the black market.
    Thanks
