S&P 500 Index Trading

What is the S&P 500 Index?

As the name implies, the S&P 500 consists of 500 companies from a wide range of industries. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index is usually considered the benchmark for U.S. equity performance. The S&P 500 is not just a list of the largest 500 companies. It is an index of 500 of the most widely held U.S.-based common stocks, chosen by the S&P Index Committee for market size, liquidity, and sector representation. According to the Index Committee, “Leading companies in leading industries” is the guiding principal for S&P 500 inclusion. While widely traded international companies are included, the Index Committee recently announced that only U.S.-based companies will be added in the future. The S&P 500 Index represents 70% of all U.S. publicly traded companies. Part of the index’s popularity is due to its close association with the largest mutual fund in the world, the Vanguard 500 Index Fund.
