Want a quick snapshot of the world's economies? Go to Standard & Poor's Index Services, a clearinghouse for international financial data. One plus: A mouse-click on "Current Index" shows you how S&P stock market indices fared that day and lets you see not only the famous S&P 500, but narrower indices such as the SmallCap 600 and the MidCap 400. A bigger plus: Another mouseclick on "Emerging Market Stats" reveals a page that includes information about foreign markets everywhere from Argentina to Zimbabwe. This is a key resource for anybody doing business abroad. With one quick look at a regionalized index, you'll know instantly where that foreign economy is heading.
