What is ES35 (Spanish 35 index)?

IBEX35 is the Spanish benchmark index.

IBEX35 is considered one of the most important criteria for measuring the health of the Spanish economy. The companies that make up this index are Spain, which is the most liquid in the SIBE (Spanish Stock Exchange Interconnection System), an electronic trading platform used by the four stock exchanges in Spain (Madrid, Bilbao, Valencia and Barcelona). It is a company.

IBEX 35 is a market capitalization weighted index, so not all companies have the same weight. The companies with the highest weight in the index are those with high market capitalization. The decline or rise of these companies can affect the index.

History of IBEX ‏(SPAIN35)

IBEX 35 was founded on January 14, 1992. The index name includes the number of constituent companies, but it is not always composed of 35 companies. There were times when the number of constituent companies was 34, and there were times when there were 36 companies. Since its inception, more than 100 companies have participated in this index. Companies such as Tabacalera, Iberia and Endesa were some of the first companies to form part of this index in the early days.

Initially, IBEX 35 included companies in the energy, utilities and tourism industries. Not all companies that made up this index at the time of its founding are still participating, but some, such as Telefónica, have been in the index for nearly 30 years.

To participate in the index, companies are reviewed by the Technical Advisory Board (TAC), which meets every six months (June and December). If there are special circumstances, TAC may convene a meeting that it deems appropriate. IBEX 35 is made up of 35 companies with the highest euro-denominated trading volumes in the last 6 months and an average equity market capitalization of more than 0.3% of the index’s total market capitalization. In addition, the stocks of these companies must be traded in at least one-third of all trading sessions in the last 6 months or in the top 20 by market capitalization.

An important milestone in IBEX 35 performance

The coronavirus pandemic has brought about major changes in the global economy. Following the announcement of Pfizer’s vaccine on November 9, 2020, IBEX 35 touched 7,500 points. A few months earlier, on March 12, 2020, the index experienced the largest decline in history during the emergence and spread of the virus, down 14.06% to 6,390 points.

On May 10, 2010, IBEX 35 recorded one of the largest rises in history at 14.43% due to attempts to stop the euro’s depreciation and the elimination of speculation on sovereign debt in some member countries.

On October 13, 2008, IBEX 35 recorded a 10.65% increase. This rise is due to the steps taken by the G7 and eurozone countries to support banks and the foreign exchange market. On the 10th and 22nd of the same month, there were two important days in the history of the index, down 9.14% and 8.16%, respectively. These declines are due to the bankruptcy of financial services company Lehman Brothers.

Brexit, which the UK separated from the European Union, also caused a loss on the Spanish stock market, with IBEX 35 falling 12.35% on June 24, 2016.
