    Host: What other foreign exchange indexes are often reported?

    David Marotta: The Dax 30 is Germany's stock market index for the Frankfurt Exchange and the CAC 40 is France's stock market exchange in Paris. The Heng Seng is Hongkong's stock market index and there a Shanghai index in China and these are all some of the major markets around the world. So if you hear any of those get reported those of the equivalent of the New York Stock Exchange in other countries.
