A stock index is an indicator that shows how the value of a given set of assets changesfor which you need to have data from different companies or sectors of a part of the market.

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

Today in our economy there are various indices and They can be associated based on their location, 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 being measured, but the main factor is the market capitalization of each firm that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying the day’s value of the share in the corresponding stock market by the total shares that are in the hands of investors.

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

Reading a stock index also involves analyzing its evolution over time. New indices always start 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 had a better return. However, 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.

Between the major US stock indices There is the Dow Jones Industrial Average, better known as Dow Jones, which is made up of 30 companies. Also, the S&P 500, which includes 500 of the largest companies on the New York Stock Exchange. Finally, there appears Nasdaq 100which links 100 of the largest non-financial firms.

There is also the SSE Composite Index, which appears as the most solid in China, made up of the most relevant companies on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
