    About Lesson

    A stock index is a measurement of value of a certain section of the stock market
    Major stock indices can give an indication as to the health of the equity market (and sometimes the economy) of a particular country or region
    Most nations have one major index. The US has three: the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and NASDAQ-100
