As you are explaining how to analyze the industrial company, Dr. Washington says, “I saw on the news last night that the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 100 points, the S&P 500 was unchanged from the day before, and the NASDAQ was up 10 points.”
Dr. Washington continues, “What exactly are the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500, and the NASDAQ, and how can one of them be up, the other unchanged, and the other down?”
