Equal Weighted Index

by QuantShare, 2097 days ago
Share |






This item creates an equal-weighted index given a basket of assets and a reference date. The close, open, high, low and volume fields of the index or composite are constructed based on the weight of each asset on the reference date.

By default, the reference date is set to the beginning of 2008. At that date, the index has a value of 100. On a subsequent date, the close price (or high, open, low, volume) of each asset is divided by the price on the reference/rebalance date, the results are then averaged and assigned to the equal-weighted index.

How to update the list of assets:

- Open the composite tool by selecting "Tools" then "Composites"
- Select the equally weighted index then click on "Update"
- Select your stocks or securities in the "Symbols Filter" control
- Click on "Next" several times to save the composite settings

How to specify the reference date:

- Update the composite
- Click on "Next" then update the first line of the index formula

Example:
year1 = 2006;

To set 01/01/2006 as the reference date

How to rename your equally weighted index:

- Click on the button next to the search box (Composites Form)
- Double click on your composite then rename it

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
