What are Indices?

Indices are a type of investment that has been gaining popularity in recent years. An index is typically defined as a portfolio of stocks that represents a particular market or market sector. Thus, indices (also known as stock indexes) measure the price performance of a group of stocks in a specific section of the stock market. For example, the US500 is based on the 500 largest companies weighted mainly by market capitalization that are listed on the New York Exchange or NASDAQ.

Trading indices enables you to gain exposure to an entire sector by opening a single position. This means that you can invest in the performance of a group of stocks without having to purchase each individual stock. This can be particularly useful if you want to invest in a specific market sector, but don’t have the time or resources to research individual stocks.

What affects Indices prices?

The price movements and volatility of indices are impacted by a range of factors, such as political events, major events that affect companies in a particular sector, economic data like employment figures, and big changes in the currency markets.
