Stock Indices use a portfolio of representative companies (usually spanning major industries) to reflect the status of the whole stock market. There are basically three kinds: global, regional and national. Global indices include companies regardless of where they are traded. Regional indices include companies from a certain region and national indices include companies from a specific nation. Most major and emerging economies have a national stock index, if not several.

Indices are used to get an indication of the market's overall direction. Some analysts use them as a barometer of the underlying economy. Indices can be comprised of tens to hundreds of stocks and each index calculates the weighted average differently. Some weigh the stocks equally (equal weighting), others take company size into account (capitalization weighting) and others use a hybrid method (modified capitalization weighting). Indices are tradable entities that are traditionally traded through stock index futures.

Looks to have completed a 5 wave move and we have price rising within a wedge, also with a bearish MACD divergence to price. This weekly chart looks rather bearish to me. Wouldn't you agree?

The Dow is struggling to push higher. I have a resistance trendily coming in along with structure telling me price is looking to move lower - but is stubborn. :) If price does move in my favour then it could form an advanced pattern
