Trade CFDs on index and index Futures

With MT4 ECN and MT4 PRO Account

Key features for trading CFDs on Indices:

  • Since you can take both short and long positions with CFDs, a bearish market holds the same risks for incurring losses, but it also offers potential opportunities for profit.
  • Indices receive dividends depending on the net dividend of the shares they are composed of. FXTM clients trading CFDs on Indices benefit from these dividends.
  • With CFDs, the same margin requirements apply regardless of whether you’re selling or buying.
  • Trading CFDs on Indices is far less costly than trading the underlying index, but offers the potential to deliver similar gains and losses.
  • While many traders find CFDs appealing, always remember that they carry the same risk as trading any leveraged asset.

New to indices trading?

A stock index is a hugely important part of our financial world, but it is nothing more than a number representing the top shares from a particular exchange.

For example, the FTSE 100 represents the largest 100 companies traded on the London Stock Exchange. If, on average, the share price of these companies goes up – then the FTSE 100 will rise with them. And if they fall, it will drop.

Other examples of stock indices include

  • Dow Jones, Nasdaq and S&P (US)
  • DAX and CAC (Europe)
  • Hang Seng, Nikkei and ASX (Asia-Pacific)

Most of these are calculated using a capitalisation-weighted average, which means the size of each company is taken into account. The more a particular company is worth, the more its share price will affect the index as a whole.

However, the Dow Jones and Nikkei are price-weighted indices, where shares with higher prices have more influence. This means a stock trading at $100 is given 10 times more weight than one at $10.
