What are indices?

Indices are groups of stocks combined used to represent the stock market performance or its separate sectors. Moreover, they can also evaluate the performance of the entire industry, inflation, national economies, and even separate commodities. It means that if the price for stocks goes up or down, so does the index.

What are the most popular indices?

Since stock market indices measure the value of a particular economic sector, they can be divided according to their levels of income, sector, weight, company types, etc. As a rule, indices are divided into national, regional, and global.

  • National indices track the performance of national economies. For example, CAC 40 Index is used to measure the well-being of France, DAX evaluates the economy of Germany, and etc.
  • Regional indices follow equities of a particular region worldwide. Some of top regional indices include S&P Asia 500 (Asia), Euro STOXX 50 index and S&P Europe (Europe).
  • Global indices cover equities worldwide. For example, Dow Jones Global Titans 50, S&P Global 100 index, NASDAQ Composite, and others.

How to trade CFDs on indices?

Trading CFDs (Contracts for Difference) on indices doesn’t require investing in indices directly. Instead, traders can access the market, assess the market situation, and speculate on the price fluctuation by making a bid. The following type of trading allows to go short or long or take advantage of the leverage with small or large amounts of funds. However, using leverage isn’t a golden pill for traders. It can either increase a traders’ capital or lead to significant losses.
