A stock index is an indicator that shows how the price of a certain set of assets changesso you need to have data from different 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 characteristics such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same industry, 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. 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 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. 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

Nowadays there are various indices and They can congregate 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 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 calculating, 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. Said report must be notified every three or six months, as the case may be.

Reading a stock index also requires being aware of its changes over time. New indices always open with a fixed value based on stock prices on your start date, but not everyone follows this method. Therefore, it can be a source of misunderstandings.

If one index increases 500 points in a day, while another only adds 20, it might appear that the first one performed better. But, 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 important.
