US 500, also named FTSE US 500 Index, SPX500, S&P 500 was created in 1923. It is considered today the most important benchmark in the US economy. The US 500 differs from the Dow Jones Industrial Average (although it includes all 30 companies of the DJIA) and the NASDAQ Composite index, because of its diverse constituency and weighting methodology. It all started when in 1860 Standard & Poor's was founded. It was a company that provided financial information and analysis.In 1923 the "composite Index" as it was known back then introduced its first stock index. Its original list was only formed by a small number of stocks. In 1926 it expanded to 90 stocks and it was in 1957 when it englobed its current 500 stocks.In order for any company to be eligible for the Index, it needs to have a minimum market cap of $6.1B. and its committee select the companies based on eight criteria: market capitalization, liquidity, domicile, public float, sector classification, financial viability, and length of time publicly traded and stock exchange.In June 2010 the index was trading at $1073, nowadays it has almost 3x its value at $2830.

1. Technical analysts have spotted some chartist trends that are not likely to be seen. In May 2019 the MACD line has moved over 0 for 12 straight weeks. It is believed that the MACD determines when institutional investors enter or exit an asset. Throughout all the years that the US500 has been established for, this phenomenon has only been seen another 16 times. Each of these events has been followed by an average gain of 29% and a median gain of 26% two years following this unusual chartist signal. While the charts could change, investors should keep an eye out for any real representations of price changes. 2. The Trade war between China and the US could put some unnecessary pressure on the index. In this case, it would be important to beware of fundamental events and last-minute news about the overall advance of the Trade war issue.
