A stock index It is an indicator that is used to know the evolution of the price of a certain set of assets.so it collects 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 business, there are also 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, health of the national and global economy, and stock investment performance and shares of an entity. 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 analyze comparisons 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. observed carefully 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

Nowadays there are various indices and They can be brought together 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 calculation method, but the main factor is the market capitalization of each company that comprises it. This is obtained by multiplying the daily value of the bond in the corresponding stock market by the total shares that are in the hands of investors.

Companies that are listed on the stock market 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 observing its changes over time. Current 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 grows 500 points in one day, while another only adds 20, it might appear that the first had a better return. But, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the other at 300, it can be derived that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were greater.

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

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