A stock index is an indicator that shows how the value of a certain set of assets changesso it takes data from different companies or sectors of a part of the market.
These indicators are mainly used by the stock exchanges of different countries around the world and each of them can be integrated by firms with specific requirements such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same type of industry, there are also some indices that only consider a handful of shares to determine their value or others that consider hundreds of shares.
Stock market indices serve as indicator of stock market confidence, business confidence, health of the national and global economy, and stock investment performance and shares of a company. Generally, if investors do not have confidence, stock prices would tend to fall.
Likewise, they function to measure the performance of an asset manager and allow investors to make a comparison between profitability and risk; measure the opportunities of a financial asset or create portfolios.
This type of indicators began to be used at the end of the 19th century after the journalist Charles H. Dow. observed carefully how company shares tended to rise or fall in price together, so he created two indices: one that contained the 20 most important railway companies (as it was the most important industry at the time), as well as 12 shares of other types of businesses
Nowadays there are various indices and They can associate based on their geography, sectors, company size or even the type of assetFor example, the US Nasdaq index is made up of the 100 largest companies mostly related to technology such as Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOG), Tesla (TSLA ), Nvidia (NVDA), PayPal (PYPL), Comcast (CMCSA), Adobe (ADBE).
Each stock index has its own calculation method, but the main component is the market capitalization of each company that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying the day's value of the security in the corresponding stock market by the total shares that are in the hands of investors.
Companies listed on the stock exchange are required to present a balance of its composition. Said report must come to light every three or six months, as the case may be.
Reading a stock index also involves taking into account its changes over time. Current indices always appear with a fixed value based on security prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can lead to failures.
If one index grows 500 points in one day, while another only adds 20, it might appear that the first one performed better. But, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the other at 300, it can be assumed that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were more notable.
