Indices, or indexes as they are also known, are resources which are grouped together, either representing a specific division of a market or the entire market itself. A general level of a stock market index is calculated by considering the actual prices of all the different resources within the index, this implies that shifts in specific stock prices will make the value of the index to go up or go down.
