A stock index It is an indicator that measures the evolution of the price of a given set of assetsfor which you need to have data from various companies or sectors in a part of the market.

These indicators are mainly used by the stock exchanges of different countries around the world and each of them can be integrated by companies with specific characteristics such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same industry. In addition, there are some indices that only consider 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, the of the national and global economy, and the performance of stock investments and shares of a company. If investors do not have confidence, stock prices would tend to fall.

Likewise, they function to measure the performance of an asset manager and allow investors to compare 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

Currently in humanity there are various indices and They can be grouped based on their location, sectors, company size or even the type of asset.For 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 component 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 submitted every three or six months, as the case may be.

Reading a stock index also requires being careful about its changes over time. Current indices always start with a fixed value based on security prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can be misleading.

If one index grows 500 points in one day, while another only gains 20, it might appear that the first one performed better. However, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the other at 300, you can see that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were larger.
