No hay comentarios :

The FTSE 100 index, popularly pronounced as Footsie 100, is a stock market index published by the Financial Times. It is composed of the top 100 equities in the LSE (London Stock Exchange). FTSE is an acronym for Financial Times Stock Exchange. The main indicator of the FTSE 100 is the FTSE 100 Index. The index was developed with a base price level of 1000 on January 3, 1984.


The market capitalization of companies in the index is 70% of the total value of the stock market in London. The equities are weighted by capitalization criteria. It is reviewed quarterly, the first Friday of March, June, September and December. The market sessions take place from Monday to Friday.

History of the FTSE 100

The FTSE 100 index was first calculated on 3 January 1984 with a base price level of 1000 points. During its first 15 years it rose almost continuously, reaching a value almost seven times the initial price during the late 90s, reaching the highest value in its history on December 30, 1999, when it registered a quote of 6,950.6. The dotcom bubble caused a sharp drop in the index for several years, which rose again reaching a peak at 6091.33 on February 8, 2007, but the financial crisis of 2008 caused another fall to 3500. Soon after, the FTSE 100 breaks the record rise in a market session on September 19, 2008 with 9.33 percent during the crisis of subprime mortgages. The second highest peak in history was on May 14, 2014, touching 6894.
