The S&P 500 is one of the most widely quoted Wall Street indices because it represents the largest publicly traded companies in the USA based on market capitalization of 500 large companies listed on the Wall Street Exchange.

The S&P 500 index uses a market cap weighting method, assigning a higher percentage allocation in the index to companies with the largest market capitalizations. The S&P 500 is different from the Dow Jones Industrial Average 30 and the NASDAQ Composite index, because of its diverse constituency and weighting method. S&P 500 is one of the most followed equity indices, for financial institutions and retail investors and many use it as a benchmark of the U.S. economy. The price of the index depends on the value of the companies included in the index. Many investors believe that the S&P 500 is mirroring the US economy so decide to go long or short the index according to their outlook of the US economy.
