Invest in indices to share the success of the companies whose stocks are enlisted in the index.

The easiest way to understand the stock index is to picture it as a basket of similar shares.

Indices trading in brief

Typically, indices represent companies of one particular stock exchange (S&P, for example, reflects the average value of the biggest companies on NYSE), but some of them were created to represent a slice of an industry (Dow Jones Industrial Average, Morgan Stanley Biotech Index).
Indices allow investors to track the overall performance of a particular market or country’s economy. Instead of having to research a dozen of individual companies, investors can get their foot in the door of the whole industry, which makes indices investing a safer and less volatile option.
