What does the NASDAQ tell us?

The NASDAQ 100 index is comprised of 100 largest and most actively traded non-financial companies listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Financial firms are represented by the NASDAQ Bank Index. A stock market index is a measurement of average performance of companies forming the index. It gives a snapshot of what investors are thinking at that particular moment.

Other indices

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gets more attention than the NASDAQ 100, though it only represents 30 companies. It’s best and worst days mark some of the major financial events of the past century. This helps to put more meaning behind events like Black Monday, the Wall Street crash of 1929, or the 2008 Financial Crisis, as well as the speed of their recoveries in financial markets.
