Stock Market Indexes

Blog post: introducing the Stock Market Indexes page

I witnessed the dot-com crash and the Great Recession from the sidelines, learning. I survived (financially) the European Debt Crisis closer to the front lines, working in the banking industry between 2010 and 2013. I have been working for Tech companies ever since, growing capital with a mildly risk-averse mindset, focused on learning and finding the balance between the three main types of wealth we can control: intellectual, social, and financial.

I won’t be sharing my stock portfolio or my personal investment strategies with the world, because there is nothing remarkable about that, but I use some social media platforms and tools for creating my own stock market indexes and sharing ideas. All indexes will be published in this page and I will use the blog to talk about the companies I select for calculating them.

Please note. A stock market index is not investment advice. It is not bullish or bearish in itself. The aim is to help investors be better informed of market movements in the four segments of emerging technologies that DGRXII tracks. The index will be successful if any investor ever considers it as an alternative source of information or benchmark for the Key Emerging Technologies market.

DGRXII on Thematic

This index aims to measure market sentiment in companies that leverage or develop Key Emerging Technologies. The index consists of 12 companies and 4 main sector blocks that I have defined to achieve diversification for such a small number of stocks. Note that the most popular indexes in the tech sectors, such as NASDAQ-100, SP500.45, or MSCI World Information Technology Index, include several dozens of stocks and are naturally more diversified than the DGRXII. The obvious reason for limiting the number to 12 is that I lack the time and resources to track as many companies as professional indexes do.

DGRXII indexed fund simulation on Jika.io

In this profile, I will aim to track the index with simulated trades, updating the holdings as frequently as time permits. The index is market-cap weighted, so tracking it with an investment portfolio requires trading each of the assets and adjusting the holdings to the market-determined weight at each moment.
