Indices naming confusion

Recommended Posts

Hi Forum, noob here.

I use another large trading platform to monitor indices in a short list, but would like to use IG instead.

I am confused by the naming conventions from one platform to the other. The indices I follow are:

DJI (Dow Jones Industrial Average)

SPX (S&P500)

IXIC (Nasdaq ?)

XAO (All ords (ASX))

May I ask what the equiv markets are in IG and can they all be viewed in a list?

Many thanks,

DJI = Wall Street

S&P500 = US500

Nasdaq = US Tech 100

ASX = Australia 200


They are ETFs tracking those indexes. They look at the index during market hours and at the futures outside market hours. They run 24/7 from Sunday night to Friday night. GMT timezone
