    Beware of the Russell 2000, but should you buy the Dow Jones Industrial Average?

    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.

    Dow snaps losing streak on energy lift

    The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed on Friday, as the Dow put to rest an eight-day losing streak with a boost from energy stocks, but losses in the technology space kept the Nasdaq in check. Exxon Mobil rose 2.1 percent and Chevron gained 2.0 percent, as the two biggest boosts to the S&P. The S&P energy index was up 2.2 percent, as the sector notched its strongest day in June. A rally in oil prices due to OPEC's earlier decision to restrict supply in an effort to drain global inventories has given the sector a gain of more than 11 percent for the quarter-to-date, best among the 11 major S&P groups.
