A stock index It is an indicator that shows how the value of a given set of assets evolves.for which it takes data from various companies or sectors of a fragment of the market.

These indicators are mainly used by the stock exchanges of each country and each of them can be integrated by companies with specific requirements 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, health of the national and global economy, and stock investment performance and shares of an entity. Generally, if investors do not have confidence, stock values ​​would tend to fall.

Likewise, they function to measure the performance of an asset manager and allow investors to make a comparison between 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 humanity there are various indices and They can be grouped based on their location, sectors, company size or also the type of asset.For 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 company 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. This report must be submitted every three or six months, as the case may be.

Reading a stock index also involves taking into account its variations 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 lead to inaccuracies.

If one index sees an increase of 500 points in one day, while another only adds 20, it could 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 concluded that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were more notable.

Between the major US stock indices There is the Dow Jones Industrial Average, better known as Dow Jones, of which 30 companies are part. Likewise, the S&P 500, which comprises 500 of the largest companies on the New York Stock Exchange.

Also, the SSE Composite Index, which appears as the most notable in China, made up of the most relevant companies on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
