About the Indices Market

An index is a way of standardizing and tracking the performance of a collection of assets or securities.

Indices are also used as a benchmark to assess the general performance of other economic data, like inflation or interest rates.

Popular indices in the financial market include the S&P 500, which tracks 500 of the largest companies listed on the stock exchange in the US. Other top-traded indices from the US include the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the NASDAQ.

Indices for many other large markets are also highly traded, including the DAX (Germany) and the FTSE (UK).
