An index is most regularly 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 of a specific section of stock market. The USA500, for example, is based on the 500 largest companies weighted mainly by market capitalization that are listed on the New York Exchange or NASDAQ.

Indices Trading FAQ
Indices traders speculate on price movements in stock Indices like the FTSE 100, the Dow Jones and DAX. These well-known Indices are essentially baskets of individual Shares which are often ranked by independent institutions like major banks or specialist companies like Standard & Poor’s, the FTSE Group and Deutsche Börse.
Some of the biggest Indices markets in the world have long, distinguished histories. Indices price movements and volatility are impacted by factors like political events, major factors which affect companies in a particular sector, economic data like employment figures and big changes in the currencies markets. It is worth bearing in mind too that major shifts in the fortune of a single big company which is part of a wider index can disproportionately impact on its performance.
