If a stock rises or falls, we can get a sense as to whether it might have an impact on the overall index. The market capitalization-weighting structure is more common than the price-weighted method across U. If a stock has a heavy weighting in the index while being overvalued, the stock typically inflates the overall value or price of the index. A rising market cap of a company isn't necessarily indicative of a company's fundamentals, but rather it reflects the stock's increase in value relative to shares outstanding.
As a result, equal-weighted indexes have become increasingly popular whereby each company's stock price movements have an equal impact on the index.

Along with Monday's liquidity kick, top financial and economic regulators have announced dozens of other measures to stabilize the situation. For example, the National Development and Reform Commission — the country's top economic planning agency — said Monday the government would "go to all lengths" to make sure that people have what they need to live, including food and other necessities. It also encouraged companies "that are key to control and prevent the virus" or are "of vital importance to the national economy" to resume production as soon as they can.
And the People's Bank of China said Saturday that it would provide money at low interest rates to commercial banks so that those banks could offer cheap loans to companies that make clinical masks, virus testing kits and other types of medical supplies.
The central government will also subsidize those special loans. The country's stock exchange regulators have also said they would allow companies to delay annual reports and quarterly earnings reports if they are affected by the disruption.
Markets elsewhere in Asia were mostly lower Monday, too — though their losses were not nearly as dramatic as in China. Six months of protests wrecked Hong Kong's economy.
The city also underwent massive construction during the s, with developers building new modular structures above older ones. The city became extremely densely populated and "a world unto its own," an enclave,  with over 33, people in buildings occupying little more than 7 acres 2. As a result, the city reached its maximum size by the late s and early s; a height restriction of 13 to 14 storeys had been imposed on the city due to the flight path of planes heading toward Kai Tak Airport.
Eight municipal pipes provided water to the entire structure, although more could have come from wells. Although the walled city was for many years a hotbed of criminal activity, most residents were not involved in any crime and lived peacefully within its walls. Numerous small factories and businesses thrived inside the walled city, and some residents formed groups to organise and improve daily life there.
Charities, religious societies, and other welfare groups were gradually introduced to the city. While medical clinics and schools went unregulated, the Hong Kong government provided some services such as water supply and mail delivery.
Over time, both the British and Chinese governments found the city to be increasingly intolerable despite a reduction in the reported crime rate. The Sino-British Joint Declaration in laid the groundwork for the city's demolition. Owing to the presence of numerous other green spaces in the area, the Urban Services Department doubted the need for "yet another park" from a planning and operations point of view, but the council agreed nonetheless to accept the government's proposal on the condition that the government bear the cost of park construction.
After four months of planning,  demolition of the walled city began on 23 March  and concluded in April Construction work on Kowloon Walled City Park started the following month. It was opened officially by Governor Chris Patten a few months later on 22 December. The park's design is modelled on Jiangnan gardens of the early Qing Dynasty.
It is divided into eight landscape features,  with the fully restored yamen as its centrepiece. The park's paths and pavilions are named after streets and buildings in the walled city.
The Antiquities and Monuments Office conducted archaeological examinations as the walled city was being demolished, and several cultural remains were discovered.
The South Gate had originally served as the walled city's main entrance. Along with its foundation, other remains included two stone plaques inscribed with "South Gate" and "Kowloon Walled City" from the South Gate and a flagstone path that had led up to it. The foundations of the city's wall and East Gate were also discovered. The yamen building is made up of three halls. Originally the middle hall served the Assistant Magistrate of Kowloon's administrative office, and the rear block was his residence.
After the government officials left the area in , it was used for several other purposes, including an old people's home, a refuge for widows and orphans, a school, and a clinic. It was restored in and is now found near the centre of the park. The walled city was located in what became known as the Kowloon City area of Kowloon. In spite of its transformation from a fort into an urban enclave, the walled city retained the same basic layout.
The original fort was built on a slope  and consisted of a 2. Construction surged dramatically during the s and s, until the formerly low-rise city consisted almost entirely of buildings with 10 storeys or more with the notable exception of the yamen in its centre. Kowloon Walled City's early population fluctuated between zero and a few hundred, and began growing steadily shortly after World War II.
However, there is no accurate population information available for much of the walled city's later existence. Official census numbers estimated the walled city's population at 10, in and 14, in , but these figures were commonly considered to be much too low.
Informal estimates, on the other hand, often mistakenly included the neighbouring squatter village of Sai Tau Tsuen. A thorough government survey in gave a clearer picture: an estimated 33, people resided within the walled city. In response to difficult living conditions, residents formed a tightly knit community, helping one another endure various hardships. Parents used them to relax, and children would play or do homework there after school. The yamen in the heart of the city was also a major social centre, a place for residents to talk, have tea or watch television, and to take classes such as calligraphy.
The Old People's Centre also held religious meetings for Christians and others.Le poids affiché par le pèse personne peut être affecté par différents facteurs: L'initialisation (mise à zéro du poids) doit être effectuée après chaque déplacement du produit et après un remplacement des piles.
