    The four major markets are the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI), S&P 500 Index (^GSPC), Nasdaq 100 Index (XNAS:NDX) and Russell 2000 Index (^RUT). Some might argue that the Nasdaq Composite Index (^IXIC) is more important than the Nasdaq 100, but the Nasdaq Composite also has many small-cap stocks that are already included in the Russell 2000, so the Nasdaq 100 is a better indicator overall. With that, the Russell 2000 and the Nasdaq 100 are higher-beta markets, but with one material difference.
