About the NASDAQ 100
NASDAQ 100 Index shares trade on the NASDAQ,
where they are listed as “QQQQ”. Traders often call them “the
cubes” or “Qubes”.
NASDAQ 100 Shares (QQQ) represent an index tracking stock
for the NASDAQ 100 index. This means that for the first time, the stocks
that make up this index can be traded as a single, composite equity,
opening the door to innovative new trading and investment strategies. The
QQQ are the first financial product created by the new NASDAQ-Amex Market
Trading the QQQ:
- With the purchase or sale of NASDAQ 100 index shares,
you can - in a single transaction - participate in the collective
performance of the companies listed in the Nasdaq-100 Index. QQQQ shares
can be bought or sold just like shares of any individual stock, but
market timing becomes easier. It's a one-equity investment that gives you
ownership in the 100 stocks of the Nasdaq100 Index.
- Because Nasdaq100 Shares trade like stock, you can buy
them on margin, sell or short them, or hold them for any length of time.
- The QQQQ were designed to closely track the price and
yield performance of the NASDAQ 100 Index. You can therefore expect your
QQQQ shares to move up or down in value and closely mirror the movements
of the Index.
- Even though they have only been available since March
1999, “the cubes” are so popular today that their daily trading volume
rivals that of companies on the New York
Stock Exchange. In fact, there
are only three companies on the Big Board that generally trade more
