International Stock Market Indexes

A stock market index is a method of measuring a section of the stock market. Many indices are cited by news or financial services firms and are used to benchmark the performance of portfolios such as mutual funds. Stock market indices may be classed as an 'international' or 'global' stock market index includes (typically large) companies without regard for where they are domiciled or traded. A national index represents the performance of the stock market of a given nation—and by proxy, reflects investor sentiment on the state of its economy. The most regularly quoted international stock market indexes are national indexes composed of the stocks of large companies listed on a nation's largest stock exchanges, such as the American S&P 500 and the Japanese Nikkei 225. Below you will find the international stock market indexes for America, Asian Pacific, Europe, Africa and Middle East markets.

Global & International Stock Indexes

The concept may be extended well beyond an exchange. The Dow Jones Total Stock Market Index, as its name implies, represents the stocks of nearly every publicly traded company in the United States, including all U.S. stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange (but not ADRs) and most traded on the NASDAQ and American Stock Exchange. Russell Investment Group added to the family of indices by launching the Russell Global Index.More specialised indices exist tracking the performance of specific sectors of the market. The Morgan Stanley Biotech Index, for example, consists of 36 American firms in the biotechnology industry. Other indices may track companies of a certain size, a certain type of management, or even more specialized criteria — one international stock marketindex published by Linux Weekly News tracks stocks of companies that sell products and services based on the Linux operating environment.
