How has the stock market done in the past five days? Let’s use our knowledge on indices to help us calculate how it did.
In the past five days the s&p 500 went up about $23.00, meaning that if you were to buy one of the stocks on the s&p 500 you would have made, on average, $23.00. Don’t get too excited yet, between February 22nd and February 24th the s&p 500 dropped about $30 before rising to the amount it is today.
The nasdaq went up more than $25 and the Dow Jones went up about $50. Using this information we could easily estimate that the average stock did go up in the past week, that’s great news for all investors.
That’s all for now, Ben
