Stock Indices

The pulse of global economies

Gain exposure to the leading stock markets

Stock indices represent fairly accurately the general health of the economy. As a trading instrument, they allow to capitalize on broad market movements.

 

#SP500


 

A market value weighted index encompassing 500 companies, it has become the preferred index for U.S. stocks, as it is considered more representative of the market than the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

 

#NAS100


 

An index regrouping equities from 100 of the world's technology & biotech giants. It includes popular companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Intel and Amgen.

 

#DE30


 

Consisting of the 30 major German companies trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the index represents the most important economy in Europe. It often influences other European markets, which tend to follow the same trends.

 

#SMI


 

The Swiss stock index, made of the country's 20 main blue-chip stocks, covers over 85% of the Swiss market capitalization. Nestlé, Novartis and Roche traditionally account for over 50% of the index.
