Wilshire Indexes

A series of capitalization-weighted indexes that tracks as many stocks being traded in the United States as possible. They track all stocks traded on the NYSE, American Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, and any other stock for which data is easily available. It is the broadest index in the United States. The Wilshire indexes are subdivided into four indexes: one for large-cap, one for mid-cap, one for small-cap, and one for micro-cap stocks.
