Indices

With the growing importance of the stock market in today’s world, the majority of the population is aware of the main US (Dow Jones, Nasdaq and S&P) and European (DAX, MIB, FTSE, IBEX and CAC)  stock indexes, due to the fact that these are the indexes most frequently reported in the daily news.

Stock indexes are just numbers representing the top shares from a particular exchange. A simple example is the FTSE 100 value increases if on average, the share price of the top 100 companies it represents, goes up and vice versa.
