The Nasdaq 100 index launched in January 1985, and represents the largest non-financial domestic and international securities per market cap listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The index is a modified capitalization-weighted index. The stocks’ weights in the index are based on their market capitalizations, with certain rules capping the influence of the largest companies. The Nasdaq 100 includes companies across all industries including biotechnology, hardware, software, telecoms, and retail/wholesale trade companies. The index does not include any financial companies. The technology sector accounts for 55% of the index’s weight followed by consumer services accounting for 25%, so it is a better proxy for the technology than any other index in the USA. 27 countries are tied to companies represented in the index.

For inclusion in the stock index, securities must be listed exclusively on a Nasdaq exchange.
