The Common Trade Index is an average of commonly used items traded at the Grand Exchange, with the starting date of this average on 10 December 2007, at an index of 100. The general health of the RuneScape economy is reflected in this index.

Items may be removed or added to this index over time, but the index will remain "neutral" when that happens, following the method that the Wall Street Journal uses when the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is adjusted (see the FAQ for more information).

As of today, this index is 103.50 Down -0.32

Calculations

From the old divisor obtained from the templates:

$ {div}_{\text{old}} = 21.791759207424 $


We need to calculate a new divisor:

$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $


To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \left (\frac{320}{159} + \frac{1,335}{540} + \dots + \frac{1,828}{3,030} \right ) + \left (\frac{363}{303} + \frac{621}{419} + \dots + \frac{4,958}{5,959} \right ) \\ & = 35.26980062 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


And also:

$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 35.26980062 - \left ( \frac{363}{303} + \frac{621}{419} + \dots + \frac{4,958}{5,959} \right ) + 10 \\ & = 38.76853218 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $


Thus, the new divisor is:

$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 21.791759207424 \times \frac{38.76853218}{35.26980062} \\ & = 23.9535 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $
