About Equity Indices Trading

Equity indices, or stock indices as they are also commonly known, are actual stock market indexes, which measure the value of a specific section of a stock market. They are calculated based on a weighted average of the prices of selected stocks, which belong to the actual category that they represent. Stock indices can represent a specific stock market such as NASDAQ, or they can represent a specific set of the largest companies of a nation such as the American S&P 500, the British FTSE 100, or the Japanese Nikkei 225.

The purpose of the indices is to show the general direction of a specific stock market or of the general economy of a nation. However, since stock indices are composed of a basket of companies they can be very much affected by a big move of a specific company or by a big move of a specific sector of trade.

The actual weight given to a stock index from the underlying basket of stocks varies amongst the various indices, which means that not all use the same criteria to derive the end result. The two main ways to calculate the actual weight a specific underlying stock produces to the index itself is price weighting and capitalization weighting.

When thinking about the stock market, people usually picture buying or selling the stocks of particular companies. The market price of such stocks can experience significant ups and downs on the news related to this company or on certain reports, either bringing profits or losses to involved traders, depending on their event forecast.

But the retail part of this market is not about owning shares in an industrial giant; it’s about earning money on these stocks’ market fluctuations with the lowest risks possible. Stock market indices express the average price movement of a bundle of stocks; they never bear the risks of a single company. These indices are easier to predict, and their volatility level is higher.

Classical investing in successful stock indices is attractive and requires patience to wait for significant returns, which can take several years. However, to profit from your investment, you need to invest a significant amount of money. Traders in the retail part of the market usually choose not to enter into trades of such volume and wait for possibly modest returns. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from stock price movements.
