How do I look up index data?

To get data on indices, rather than just a company, you should use the symbol for that index for the symbol argument in a function. Below is a list of some of the most common indexes you may want to use:

  • S&P 500: ^SPX
  • Russell 2000: ^ RUT
  • Dow Jones Industrial Average: ^DJI
  • NASDAQ Composite: ^IXIC
