Global indices at your fingertips
Price-weighted indices, such as Dow Jones, are weighted based on the price of the different stocks contained within it, and will heavily reflect major price movements of those stocks. Capitalization-weighted indices, such as the NASDAQ composite index, are weighted based on the size of each component-company, and tend to reflect overall market performance. Other factors such as the types of companies within the index and region the index covers will also affect performance.
