Newb here.

Is https://robinhood.com/stocks/NDAQ an ETF, aka if I buy this, is it a composite index (like QTEC)?

Meaning if I buy NDAQ am I really buying a composite index, or am I just investing in the company behind Nasdaq... or are they the same thing?

NDAQ is the ticker for stock in the company Nasdaq, Inc., which derives income from managing the exchange (transaction fees, listing fees, real-time quote feeds, etc). Here is their description of themselves: http://business.nasdaq.com/discover

It's not the same as investing in one of the "Nasdaq" indexes, such as Nasdaq Composite or Nasdaq-100. Those you can't invest in directly, but almost every major provider has an ETF, mutual fund, or both, that's designed to follow one or more of those indexes.
