Index CFDs Trading

Index CFDs are contracts for difference over equity indexes. A contract for difference, or CFD, is a type of derivative that allows a trader to gain a long or short exposure to a trading instrument’s price. While the trader does not own the underlying asset, they ‘own’ any movement in the price of that asset while they hold a position.

An Index is a basket of assets – in most cases stocks, but any assets can be included in an index. An index is usually weighted by the market capitalization of each company, with the largest companies having the most influence on the index value.

Advantages of Trading Index CFDs

The advantage of trading indices is that they have multiple components. We offer indices like the DAX that has 30 constituents, which measures the top performing German stocks, or much broader indices like the S&P 500. Multiple components not only diversify risk to an extent, but they offer the opportunity for greater volatility due to the fact that there are simply more moving parts.
