The Principle Italian Stock IndicesMIBTEL - is the general index composed of all shares listed on the Italian stock exchange (la borsa italiana). Its value is updated every minute. The MIBTEL index does not have different versions for different market sectors.
MIB 30 - is an index composed of the shares of the most valuable 30 businesses in Italy (calculated on the basis of market capitalisation and liquidity). The components and their weights are set in March and September.
There are many other indices which reflect the market activity of different sectors and sizes of companies in Italy (for example, MIDEX is the index of the 25 shares following those in the MIB 30 in capitalisation and liquidity), but the MIBTEL and MIB 30 indices are quoted worldwide.
