The Nasdaq 100 Index also known as simply Nasdaq 100 is a stock index of the United States that collects the stocks of the 100 most important companies in the industrial sector, including companies of hardware and software, telecommunications, retail sales, wholesales and biotechnology, which are enrolled in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market. In this index can be both American and international companies.

This index does not include financial stocks, including investment companies which differentiates the  Nasdaq 100 from other indices such as the S&P 500.

This index was introduced to the market in January 1985.
