    Exchange indices allow to earn not on changes in the value of shares of individual companies, but on the value of shares of the largest companies of a separate country or certain sectors of the economy. For example, Dow Jones is the total value of the 30 largest companies in the United States (blue chips), NASDAQ100 is the 100 largest companies in the high-tech sector, and BOVESPA is the 50 largest companies in Brazil. To trade indices, you need to monitor macro-economic factors, not events related to individual companies.
