Stock Market Today | Stock Indexes and ETFs
The table above shows a snapshot of the Stock Market Today, as represented by a range of stock indexes and ETFs (exchange-traded funds). Click on a symbol to pop up a chart. Green marks a 52-week high. Our proprietary (but free) buy signals are marked in blue, and sell signals are marked in red.
The list and charts above are provided courtesy of the Gigascanner free chart-based stock scanner. Above, it's preset to show a list of stock indexes and ETFs; a number of other free stock scans are available too, over on the preset stock scans page, and also there's the Gigascanner control panel for custom, chart-based stock-screening.
ETFs and stock indexes are a great way to see the health of the overall stock market, for example, if the broad indexes and sectors are mostly up, on above-average volume, that's bullish, whereas down on big volume is bearish (as you might imagine). Also, don't miss our special volume-based color-coded buy and sell signals. When they occur on the stock indexes, as shown below, it usually marks an intermediate-term market swing, and usually to the exact day.
It pays to follow the stock indexes for perspective when trading stocks. Being right on the overall market conditions is key, bullish
or bearish, since ultimately 90% or more of all stocks will participate in the market
trend. Check out the chart below, with the buy signal in the Dow at the exact low in March,
2009. It was the start of a huge, multi-year rally. Don't miss that little red sell signal either, over by the left edge. You
can't afford not to follow these signals!
