The US 100 is an important stock index for researching trends of representative companies in the world. In addition to the majority of IT companies, there is no financial sector with a large market capitalization, so the influence of IT companies will be transmitted directly to the index. By comparing with other stock indices, you can judge whether IT companies are being bought or sold rather than market average.
In addition to the fact that there are only 100 brands, there are many IT companies with large up-downs, so the stock index' price movements are large.

The US 100 has a very great influence of Apple. In other words, it is expected that future movements of US100 will depend on Apple's market capitalization and stock price. At present, companies that follow Apple are unlikely to appear, and it is expected that the company will remain solid for the time being by developing and selling new mobile terminals.
Meanwhile, since the selection criteria of US 100 include not only American companies but overseas companies with large market capitalization, companies with large market capitalization are composed of US 100 stocks and the proportion changes, the effect of Apple Will be smaller. CFD trading is also characterized by more people trading on a short-term span than trading on a long-term span.
Since US 100 is a stock index supported by IT companies, it means a decline of IT company = US 100 decline. Looking at the performance of the related stocks and movements in the stock price is an important point in predicting the future of the US100.
