A Custom Index is a statistical measure of change in a securities market based on a defined collection of securities specifically chosen and weighted according to the author. The index represents the collective performance of the author's stock selections, removals and weightings across time.
QuoteMedia's Custom Index solution provides clients with the ability to create and manage their own unique custom indexes that can be used within any of QuoteMedia's extensive feed or Content Solution products. Clients now have a vehicle to help illustrate the advantage of their analysis to show the value of their market awareness.
QuoteMedia's integrated approach to the Custom Index enables clients to quickly leverage our existing infrastructure and web applications. After creating a Custom Index according to our client's specifications, we assign each Custom Index a unique internal symbol identifier that can be used within any of QuoteMedia's extensive Content Solution products thus providing your index with an array of functionality from simple scrolling stock tickers to full-scale research tools including detailed quotes, technical charting, historical charting, news stories mapped to each index constituent and more.
In addition to intraday and historical charting of your unique Custom Index, we also offer comparative charting to easily compare your Custom Index to indicators and indexes like the Dow Jones, NASDAQ, S&P 500, and so on.
Indexes can use various calculations to ensure that constituents properly influence the index according to their weight. The Custom Index supports any of the following:
A ... Additive (just sum up all the prices)
M ... Market Cap (percentage of market cap; add (last price times market cap) for each stock and then divide by total market cap)
V ... Average (sum up the prices and divide total by number of symbols in index)
W ... Custom Weight (client determines the weight of each symbol, assigned a percent value with the collective group of symbols in the index equaling 100%.
