A stock index It is an indicator that is used to know the evolution of the value of a certain set of assetsso it collects data from various companies or sectors in a fragment of the market.

These indicators are mainly used by the stock exchanges of various countries and each of them can be integrated by firms with specific characteristics such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same industry, there are also 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 a company. 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 return 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. looked closely at 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

Currently in our economy 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 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 calculating, but the main factor is the market capitalization of each firm that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying the daily value of the bond in the corresponding stock market by the total number of shares that are in circulation in the market.

Companies listed on the stock exchange are required to present a balance of its composition. Said report must be made public every three or six months, as appropriate.

Reading a stock index also requires taking into account its variations over time. New indices always appear with a fixed value based on stock prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can be misleading.

If one index adds 500 points in a 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 concluded that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were greater.
