A stock index It is an indicator that shows how the price of a particular set of assets is changingso it takes data from several companies or sectors of a part of the market.
These indicators are mainly used by the stock exchanges of various nations and each of them can be integrated by companies with specific requirements such as having a similar market value or belonging to the same type of 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. Generally, if investors lack confidence, stock prices tend to fall.
They also work for measuring performance of an asset manager and allow investors to analyze comparisons 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. 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
Today there are various indices and They can be grouped based on their geography, sectors, company size or also the type of assetFor 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 way of being measured, but the main factor is the market value of each company that includes it. This is obtained by multiplying the daily value of the bond 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. The report must appear every three or six months, as the case may be.
Reading a stock index also means noticing its changes over time. New indexes always start 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 gains 500 points in one day, while another gains only 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.
