    Can anyone please tell me the symbols for the index-tracking stocks? Apparently QQQQ is the one for NASDAQ, but what are those for S&P and Russell 2000?

    Moreover, if I trade such stocks with IB, what kind of commissions are they going to charge? Is it same as the ones for normal stocks? Thanks in advance

    QQQQ tracks the Nasdaq 100.
    SPY tracks the S&P 500.
    IWM tracks the Russell 2000.

    Commissions for these at IB are the same as for regular stocks.
