Explore Indices. Explore Opportunities.
A stock index is a portfolio of stocks that can be traded as a single instrument. Meaning, one stock index includes multiple stocks. Indices reflect the performance of a specified band of stocks in the stock market.
S&P 500 Index, Dow Jones 30, EURO STOXX 50, Nikkei 225, and FTSE 100 Index are some of the most popular global indexes. For example, Dow Jones 30 is based on the 50 of the largest blue chip companies traded on different stock exchanges, like NYSE and Nasdaq. On the other hand, Nikkei 225 is based on 225 large public companies in Japan that are traded on Tokyo Stock Exchange. Similarly, Nasdaq-100 is based on the 100 largest public, non-financial companies like Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Alphabet, and more in the US that are listed on NYSE.

How does index trading work?
As noted, the stock index represents a group of stocks. When the value of the index goes down or up, it's an indication of the performance of that "group". The overall value of the index increases when the price of the stock index jumps high; its value decreases when the price of the stock index is going down.
Note that within an index, the price of one stock may soar high while another one can decline. So, the movements of the index do not represent the performance of individual stocks.
