    S&P 500 Overlook

    My Advice on S&P 500 in 50 Words: The index is affected by the common stock performance of the 500 companies contained by it, but different importance is given to different companies. When trading S&P 500 it would be wise to keep an eye on extremely large companies like Apple, Google or Microsoft. Their performance will most likely affect the index more than a less known company.


    Dow Jones - Industrial Average Overlook

    My Advice on Dow in 50 Words: The Dow consists of just 30 large cap publicly traded American companies. Being composed of only 30 companies, it can be easier to trade sometimes because we have to be well informed about fewer companies and the importance held by one company’s stock price within the index is greater.

    One of the interesting facts about the indices is that most new traders or those not exposed to these markets tend to think the Dow is a more important measure of the performance of the country's economy. But, as you say, there are only 30 companies listed there and the S&P is actually a much better indication of how the main sectors are performing over a given time period.

    Yes, I agree, S&P is a better benchmark for the economy. Anyway, lately I see it advertised everywhere, more than it used to so probably traders will start to give it a greater importance.

    Ah! I should have guessed it would be your most recent post. Somehow I missed it. Interesting take on the S&P 500 as moving in tandem with how the economy as a whole is doing. I mean the other indices too.
    But it must be stated that trading these indices is not so simple.
    There is actually a positive correlation between the US equities and the Euro/USD which has become more so over the last year.
