Stock Market volatility can be alarming.

FTSE-100 reached 6930 on 30/12/1999 and fell to 3287 on 12/03/2003. Collapse after the dotcom bubble.
It reached 6730 on 15/06/2007 and fell to 3512 on 03/03/2009. Collapse following the global financial crisis.
It exceeded 7778 on two occasions in the first half of 2018 and fell to 4993 on 25/03/2020. Collapse during the coronavirus pandemic.

FTSE All-Share comprises about 619 (in 2019) of more than 2000 companies traded on the London Stock Exchange and represents 98% of the capital value. A significant number of constituent companies are investment companies which seems a bit like double-counting.
FTSE 100 comprises the largest 100 companies and represents 81% of the capital value.
FTSE 250 comprises 101st to 350th largest companies and represents 15% of the capital value.
FTSE All-Share is an aggregation of FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and FTSE SmallCap. No funds use FTSE SmallCap as a benchmark.
