About NASDAQ Index

NASDAQ, originally meant as an acronym for National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations, is the official name for the American Stock Exchange and although the acronym has been designated as being obsolete and out-dated in the contemporary trading scenario, the name NASDAQ still continues to remain. The NASDAQ, as a stock exchange, holds the honor of hosting the maximum amount of trading volume in the world and pictorial depiction of this mammoth figure is done through the NASDAQ chart. Due to its sheer size, the normal trading session of this stock exchange which is held from 9.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. is preceded by a pre-market session from 7.00 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. as well as a post market session lasting from 4.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.

Being the equity securities trading market featuring the largest electronic screen in the world, the NASDAQ was founded in 1971, changed ownership in 2000-2001 and has always been regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. According to the information provided by the NASDAQ chart, trading in this first electronic stock market of the world commenced on 8th February, 1971, in form of displaying of information on the computer bulletin board which did not facilitate communication between buyers and sellers. Initially it was meant to be an improvement over the previous system of OTC trading but since it did not perform any other function other than lowering the spread on a particular stock, it was still deemed as an OTC exchange till as late as 1987 and was particularly unpopular among the brokers of that era.

Nasdaq Chart

According to the NASDAQ chart, the first major fall in the NASDAQ index occurred during the stock market crash of October, 1987. Since a maximum percentage of trading prior to this situation used to occur by telephone, the exchange ran into disrepute as many of the players in the market would refuse to attend calls in the aftermath of the crash. Subsequently attempts were made to improve the situation by establishing the SOES, the Small Order Execution System, which was electronic in nature and thus enabled the dealers to place their orders through the electronic method. It was as a direct consequence of this modification that volume of trade enhanced significantly, most of it the courtesy of the automated trading systems.

Unlike the other charts pertaining to the equity market, the NASDAQ chart is not limited to one particular index but is prepared to depict a number of indexes with the NASDAQ Composite chart being the mainstay since its inception followed by the NASDAQ-100 index which was established in 1985 and the most recent introduction the NASDAQ Biotechnology index. The high flying curve indicated in the chart is reflective of the prediction that the NASDAQ index is the stock market for the next 100 years which was made when it began to advertise its traded companies to the general public.

The last decade of the 20th century witnessed a phenomenal growth in the NASDAQ chart when it merged with the London Stock Exchange in 1992 to establish the first of its kind securities market linkage across the two continents. The growth in size continued when another milestone was achieved as per the NASDAQ in 1998 to merge with the American stock exchange to form the NASDAQ Amex Market Group. As a result, at the turn of the century, the NASDAQ represented the largest electronic stock market in the world to become a public traded company, the NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. in the year 2000. The saga of acquisition continued further when on 8th November, 2007, the oldest stock exchange in America namely the Philadelphia Stock Exchange which had been in existence since 1790, was purchased by NASDAQ.

The NASDAQ quotes are available at three levels namely the first, second and third levels of which the first level shows the highest bid and the lowest offer. The second level shows public quotes and important information pertaining to the market and the third level provides special information to the market makers to enable them to place quotes and execute orders in a most lucrative manner possible.
