A stock index It is an indicator that measures how the value of a set of assets evolvesso it collects data from several 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 different specificities such as having a similar market capitalization or belonging to the same type of 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 a company. 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 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 investigated 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 geographical location, sectors, company size or also the type of assetFor 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 component 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 the investors.

Firms 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 involves observing its changes over time. New 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 a source of misunderstandings.

If one index increases 500 points in one day, while another only adds 20, it might appear that the first one performed better. However, if the first started the day at 30,000 points and the other at 300, it can be deduced that, in percentage terms, the gains for the second were considerable.
