The Hang Seng Index
Nikkei calculates and publishes various types of the indexes such as the “Nikkei Stock Average (Nikkei 225)” which is known as the representative Japanese stock market indicator, and the “JPX-Nikkei Index 400” which is jointly calculated with the Japan Exchange Group and Tokyo Stock Exchange.
