It would be very helpful if you could please list the index the stocks are in so we would know which index the stock probably follows, i.e., SCFS, Seacoast Financial Services, NASDAQ or NYSE? (March 19, 2001)

  As a rule of thumb, four or more letters is a Nasdaq stock while three or less letters is a NYSE stock. The AMEX also has three letter stocks, so the only real confusion is whether a stock is on the NYSE or the AMEX. So, the only real potential area for confusion is between NYSE and AMEX stocks, but that is usually no real difficulty in dealing with in investing or trading. The only time it comes up in our trading is the need to include the AMEX on our eSignal feed so we can get the index tracking issues, many of which trade on the AMEX.
