A stock index It is an indicator that shows how the price of a particular set of assets is developingfor which it collects data from different companies or sectors in a part of the market.
These indicators are mainly used by the stock exchanges of various countries and each of them can be integrated by companies with certain characteristics to have a similar market value or to belong to the same industry. In addition, there are some indexes that only consider a handful of stocks to determine their value, or others that take into account hundreds of stocks.
Stock market index serves as indicator of stock market confidence, business confidence, the health of the national and global economy and stock investment performance and shares in an entity. In general, if investors lack confidence, stock prices will tend to fall.
They also work for measuring performance of an asset manager and allow investors to make a comparison between return and risk; measure the possibilities of a financial asset or create portfolios.
This type of indicators began to be used in the late 19th century after journalist Charles H. Dow. looked carefully at how company stocks tended to rise or fall in price together, so he created two indexes: one containing the 20 main railroad companies (since that was the most important industry at the time), as well as 12 stocks in other types of companies
Today there are various indices and They can be grouped according to their location, sectors, company size or also the type of asset.For example, the US Nasdaq index consists of the 100 largest companies mainly 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 calculation, but the main factor is the market value of each company that includes it. This is obtained by multiplying today’s value of the share on the corresponding stock market by the total number of shares that are on the market.
Companies listed on the stock exchange are obliged to present a balance sheet of its composition. This report must be submitted every three or six months, as applicable.
Reading a stock index also involves observing its changes over time. New indices always open with a fixed value based on security prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can lead to inaccuracies.
If one index gets 500 points in one day while another gets only 20, it may appear that the first index did better. However, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the second at 300, it can be inferred that the gains for the second were percentage-wise greater.
