Code efficiency

Can someone please suggest any ways to make this code a little more efficient? Or point out better ways to do something.... this is the first thing I have tried to build with javascript (or any scripting language).

// Set up a looping function
var Abstraction = function() {
  this.index = -1;

Abstraction.prototype.getIndex = function getIndex() {
  return this.index;

Abstraction.prototype.isDoneTest = function isDoneTest() {
  return this.index > 6;

var list = new Abstraction();
// End of looping stuff.

var https = require("https");
var crownURL = "https://api.beteasy.com.au/Event/QueryMasterEventsByClassAndOrderBy?OnlyIsOpenForBetting=true&DateFrom=2015-03-04T04%3A55%3A00.0000000%2B00%3A00&DateTo=2016-03-04T12%3A59%3A00.0000000%2B00%3A00&MasterEventTypeID=2&EventTypes=101&MasterCategoryID=16&CategoryClassOrderBys=0-99&EventClassOrderByMode=1&EventClassOrderByValue=1&RowsPerPage=50&CurrentPage=0";

//Connect to the API URL 

var request = https.get( crownURL, function(response) {
    //console.log("statusCode: ", response.statusCode);
    var body = "";
    response.on('data', function(chunk){
        body += chunk;
    response.on('end', function(){
        //PARSE DATA
        var markets = JSON.parse(body);
        //PRINT DATA 
        //Print the match name
        function iterator(){
          var i = list.getIndex();

        var gameTwo = (markets.Results[i].MasterEventName);
        var homeTeamTwo = (markets.Results[i].Events[1].Outcomes[0].OutcomeName);
        var homeH2HOdds = (markets.Results[i].Events[0].FixedMarkets[0].Price);
        var awayTeam = (markets.Results[i].Events[1].Outcomes[1].OutcomeName);
        var awayH2HOdds = (markets.Results[i].Events[0].FixedMarkets[1].Price);
        var homeLine = (markets.Results[i].Events[1].FixedMarkets[0].Points);
        var awayLine = (markets.Results[i].Events[1].FixedMarkets[1].Points);

        console.log("Head to Head");
        console.log(homeTeamTwo, homeH2HOdds);
        console.log(awayTeam, awayH2HOdds.toFixed(2));
        console.log(homeTeamTwo, homeLine, "$1.92");
        console.log(awayTeam, awayLine, "$1.92");

        var interval = setInterval(iterator,1);

request.on("error", function(error){
