A stock index is an indicator that measures how the price of a given set of assets evolvesso you need to have data from various companies or sectors of a fragment 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 requirements such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same industry. Likewise, 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 an entity. 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 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. 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 there are various indices and They can be agglomerated depending 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 day’s value of the security in the corresponding stock market by the total number of shares that are in circulation in the market.

Firms that appear on the stock exchange are required to present a balance of its composition. Said report must be published every three or six months, as the case may be.

Reading a stock index also requires noticing its changes over time. New indices always start with a fixed value based on security prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it may seem misleading.

If one index gains 500 points in a day, while another only gains 20, it might appear that the first index 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 more significant.
