Market Indexes

NASDAQ and the Dow Jones Industrial Average are separate "indexes" of stocks. They track the changes in the value of the stock of different companies. Each index includes different stocks. NASDAQ includes a lot of different companies, many of which are technology companies. The Dow includes just a few dozen companies.
