How to display current Dow Jones Avg, S&P 500 Avg, NASDAQ Avg

My first account is "Index". In that account, I would like to display the current Dow Jones Avg, S & P 500 Avg, and the NASDAQ Avg. How do you do that? Isn't there a "stock symbol" for those three averages that would update every 20 minutes? Please advise.

    You don't need to create a Quicken account for indexes; Quicken already has a pseudo-account for them.

    The default Quicken "Securities List" contains 4 indexes: Dow Jones Industrials, NASDAQ Composite, Russel 2000, and the S&P Index.  Their prices are automatically checked to be downloaded.  When you "Download Quotes" (or do a One Step Update), Quicken will get quotes for your indexes, and any other securities checked to have their prices downloaded.

    You can see the index prices in the "Security Detail View"; and the "Portfolio" view (if you have checked "Indexes" in the "Accounts to include" and you have checked each index in the "Securities to include" - in the Customize View dialog).

    Thank you NoWayJose. Worked like a charm. So nice of you to take time to help a rookie.
