Foreign stock market indexes are published daily in the Wall Street Journal next to the "World Markets" column, which reports developments in foreign stock markets.

The first column identifies the country of the foreign stock exchange followed by the market index; for example, the circled entry is for the Nikkei 225 Average in Japan. The second column, "CLOSE," gives the closing value of the index, which was 8558.82 for the Nikkei 225 Average on January 20, 2003. The "NET CHG" column indicates the change in the index from the previous trading day, -131.43, and the "% CHG" column indicates the percentage change in the index, -1.51%. The "YTD NET CHG" column indicates the change in the index from the beginning of the year (year to date), -20.13, and the "YTD % CHG" column indicates the percentage change in the index from the beginning of the year, -0.23%.
