Stock Indices are helpful to understand a market's overall direction and as a barometer of the underlying economy. They're made up of a basket of securities, derivatives, or other financial instruments – usually spanning major industries – that are used to reflect the status of a specific market or asset class, and different indices are weighted independently and cover a variety of geographies. Basically, there's more variety in global indices than on the Cheesecake Factory menu. Use them to understand where the markets are headed and inform your trading strategy.
