What is the Dow Jones Stock Exchange?

Actually, there is no such thing. There is the Dow Jones Industrial Average, an index of 30 leading companies thought to represent the leaders of American business. There is also the New York Stock Exchange which is a market in which one can trade about 2,800 companies.

There are other stock indexes and also other stock exchanges but these two are the most well-known. The Dow Jones stock exchange? It doesn’t exist.
