Understanding the US stock market

Understanding the US stock market

You’ve probably heard of the Dow Jones Industrial Average – often just called the Dow – the S&P 500, the NYSE and the NASDAQ but which is an exchange and which are indices? And how do they all work together?

We've invested a bit of time looking into the make-up of the US stock market and pulled together a graphic that explains how it works and what everything is. We’ve kept it simple because there are so many different indices and exchanges but we couldn’t resist talking about FANG and the Nifty Nine again…never heard of them? Take a look at the bottom of the graphic when you open it.
