Stock Market Indexes – In pictures

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I’m a huge fan of investing in plain-vanilla stock market indexes to give my clients low-cost and tax-efficient exposure to the markets in general. The Visual Capitalist just posted this infographic on Monday and it does a great job of helping you understand a few of the most well-known market indexes – the Dow Jones Industrial Average (“the Dow”), the Standard & Poors 500 Index (“the S&P”), and the NASDAQ Composite Index.
