About Index Today: Index Today provides a quote for a particular index supported by links to a one-year default chart, price reports, financial reports, a 30-day price history and the ability to add or remove the particular index from your personal Stocklist. The Index Today page also provides a list of the five top gainers, losers and most active stocks contained in the index for the current or most recent trading day.
A link to a Price Report containing all members of the particular index is also provided as well as a link to a list of all Index members.
Each Index Today page also features an Enter Symbol text box that lets you generate a new quote by entering a symbol plus its exchange code, which, for indexes is I. Example: TTT-I for the TSE 300 Index.
During trading hours (weekdays, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.), price quotes are delayed 15 minutes.
Returns calculations across the site reflect all stock splits and are based on simple capital appreciation. Historical percent and net change calculations are updated shortly after the close of the daily markets. In some cases, prices, percent change and net change information may be updated a second time to reflect price corrections made by the exchanges.
52-Week High: The highest value the index has attained during the latest 52 weeks.
52-Week Low: The lowest value the index has attained during the latest 52 weeks.
Enter Symbol text box: To view another stock quote from the Index Today page, enter the symbol followed by a hyphen and an exchange code (e.g.: BCE-T, TSE-I) and click Go. If you don't know a stock symbol for the company or index, click the Symbol Lookup text link to enter a search containing the company or index name. Then click the underlined security Symbol to view a Stock or Index Today quote for the security. Or return to the Stock or Index Today page and enter its symbol.
Exchange Codes: If you don't specify an exchange code after entering a stock or index symbol, our database will match the symbol with its primary exchange — usually the TSE in Canada and/or the NYSE or Nasdaq in the United States. For example, if you enter BCE into the text box and click "Go," the system will return a report containing both BCE-T (as traded on the TSE) and BCE-N (as traded on the NYSE). Therefore, to view a quote for a particular symbol, enter the symbol followed by a hyphen and an exchange code. The exchange codes are as follows: T-Toronto, X-Canadian Venture, D-CDN, N-New York, A-American, Q-Nasdaq NM, QS-Nasdaq SC, Q2-OTCBB, I-Index.
