What is the S&P 500?


What is the S&P 500

The Standard & Poor’s 500, often abbreviated as the S&P 500, or just the S&P, is an American stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 large companies having common stock listed on the NYSE or NASDAQ. The S&P 500 index components and their weightings are determined by S&P Dow Jones Indices. It differs from other U.S. stock market indices, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average or the Nasdaq Composite index, because of its diverse constituency and weighting methodology. It is one of the most commonly followed equity indices, and many consider it one of the best representations of the U.S. stock market, and a bellwether for the U.S. economy. The National Bureau of Economic Research has classified common stocks as a leading indicator of business cycles.[9]

The S&P 500 was developed and continues to be maintained by S&P Dow Jones Indices, a joint venture majority-owned by S&P Global. S&P Dow Jones Indices publishes many stock market indices such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P MidCap 400, the S&P SmallCap 600, and the S&P Composite 1500. It is a free-float capitalization-weighted index, and has many ticker symbols, such as: ^GSPC, INX, and $SPX. (Read more at Wikipedia)

How to trade the S&P 500?

If you want to trade the S&P 500, you can trade one of the ETFs, or the Futures. In general the trading Fees for Futures are lower than for ETFs. So if your Account Size allows it, you should rather stick with S&P 500 Futures. The most well known is the E-mini (ES), but there is also the larger S&P 500 Future (Symbol SP) where 1 Point equals $250. If you’re bearish, you can buy the SPDN ETF, which goes up, when the S&P goes down.
