A stock index is an indicator used to show the evolution of the price of a given set of assetsfor which you need to have data from different companies or sectors of a part of the market.
These indicators are mainly used by the countries' stock exchanges and each of them can be integrated by firms with certain characteristics such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same industry. In addition, there are some indices that only take into account 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 an entity. Generally, if investors lack confidence, stock prices 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. carefully analyzed 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
Today in our economy there are various indices and They can be brought together based on their geography, sectors, company size or also 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 way of calculating, but the main factor is the market capitalization of each firm that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying the day's value of the security in the corresponding stock market by the total number of shares that are on the market.
Firms listed on the stock exchange are required to present a balance of its composition. This report must be made public every three or six months, as appropriate.
Reading a stock index also means noticing its variations over time. New indices always start with a fixed value based on security prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it may seem misleading.
If one index increases 500 points in one day, while another only adds 20, it could appear that the first had a better return. But, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the other at 300, it can be concluded that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were more notable.
