A stock index It is an indicator used to know the evolution of the price of a particular set of assets.so it takes 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 companies with specific characteristics such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same type of industry, there are also some indices that take into account only 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 a company. 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 profitability 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. carefully observed how company stocks tended to rise or fall 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 of other types of companies
Currently there are various indices and They can be grouped based on their geography, sectors, company size or even asset typeFor example, the US Nasdaq index consists of the 100 largest companies largely 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 value of each company that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying the daily value of the bond on the corresponding stock market by the total number of shares in circulation on the market.
Companies listed on the stock market are obliged to present a balance sheet of its composition. This report shall be published every three or six months, as appropriate.
Reading a stock index also requires observing its variations over time. New indexes always start with a fixed value based on share prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can lead to inaccuracies.
If one index sees an increase of 500 points in one day, while another only adds 20, it may appear that the first did better. However, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the second at 300, it can be concluded that the gains for the second were percentage wise greater.
