I understand the symlist command as you can use it to return whatever stock symbol you want to analyze. What if you want to analyze the ^DJI or ^SPX? When I enter them into the symlist command it returns over 12,000 stocks when I just want to examine the index itself.

When I typed in symlist(^dji), Add column close, I would expect to just see one line and that is the dow jones industrial index close result.

When I type in any stock symbol into this simple "fetch" I get one line and the close of the stock.

Any ideas why this would not work on the Dow or SP500 index?

Thank you
