What are indices?
Stock indices basically stand for a group of stocks combined together. They measure the performance of a group of shares from a particular exchange. Whenever the stocks go up or down in price, so does the index.

Most popular indices and index categories
As a group of stocks combined, indices often represent economic data, politics, or a particular country. So, S&P500 represents the US economy, FTSE100 mirrors Great Britain, DAX – stands for Germany. On the other hand, there are other prominent indices, like NASDAQ, Wilshire 5000, EAFE, or MSCI. These include foreign stocks based in the EU, Australia, and far East.
Indices are calculated either as capitalization-weighted or as price-weighted. The difference is simple. Capitalization-weighted indices would count the company with a higher market cap (total value on the market) as the one having the most significant impact on the index price. In contrast, price-weighted indices would be most affected by a company with a higher share price.
