What are US Stocks?

US stocks are traded on major exchanges like NASDAQ and NYSE, with indices measuring market performance. US brokerage services are provided by SEC-registered stockbroker dealers. Disputes regarding these services cannot be resolved through Indian exchange investor redressal forums or arbitration mechanisms.
US stocks are tracked by three major indices: the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500, and the NASDAQ Composite. The Dow follows 30 large blue-chip companies, the S&P 500 tracks 500 large companies from various sectors, and the NASDAQ Composite represents the value of stocks listed on NASDAQ. This is similar to the SENSEX and NIFTY in India. You can invest in US stocks using the BlinkX trading platform.
