CAC 40 is used as a benchmark for investors in the Paris Bourse (the Stock exchange). It is also used as a benchmark for the french economy, similar to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJIA) in the United States. But unlike the Dow, the CAC 40 is a market capitalization weighted index that follows the top 40 stocks in the Bourse (the Dow is a price-weighted index).
