Stock market indexes consist of the most important/biggest/most traded stocks in a specific market in one basket. The index is a calculated weighted average of the basket of shares. Indexes are used to follow trends in a specific market. Indexes can be composed of shares from companies in a certain industry or they are country/region specific.
