Trading The QQQQs

One popular method of trading for investors is called trading the QQQQs.

The QQQQs are actually the stock symbol for the NASDAQ 100 index. This index consist of the most actively traded and largest stocks on the Nasdaq.

The QQQQs are heavily traded by investors. Many investors like trading the QQQQs because they can basically trade the entire Nasdaq with just one stock. This offers investors more stability than trading individual stocks.

When the technology stocks started to crash in 2000 the QQQQs fell from a high of $100.00 to around $20.00 dollars. Which of course illustrates that nothing is full proof when trading stocks. An investor has to control his or her losses by using stop-loss orders to protect themselves at all times.
