    Please include the results for the S&P 500, since it is a better reflection of the U.S. economy than the narrowly focused Dow 30. In addition, most institutional money managers are measured against the S&P 500, not the Dow. Also, the S&P 500 is market value weighted and gives a better representation of the impact of any individual stocks move, versus the price-weighted Dow. Lastly, the often quoted volatility index, the VIX, is based on S&P 500 options.
