Nasdaq Composite Index

A market-value weighted 

Index

 of all common stocks 

Listed

 on Nasdaq. The Nasdaq 

Composite

 dates back to 1971, which is when the Nasdaq 

Exchange

 was first formalized. The 

Index

 is used mainly to track technology stocks, and thus it is not a good 

Indicator

 of the 

Market

 as a whole. Unlike the 

Dow

 Jones Industrial 

Average

 (DJIA), the 

Nasdaq

 is 

Market

 value-weighted, so it takes into 

Account

 the total 

Market capitalization

 of the companies it tracks and not just their 

Share

 prices.
