What is a Market Index ?

A Market Index is a statistical index number which is calculated everyday on a basket of shares that make up that index with reference to a base year.

These indexes are constructed on specific sectors or industry groups or on the whole market itself depending on the need.

Whenever a stock in an index is replaced, the index values are adjusted accordingly.
