Index CFDs

Index CFD trading provides a great way to speculate on the performance of each overall stock market, as opposed to selecting individual stocks and shares. In fact, index CFDs are often viewed as being less of a risk than trading individual stocks, as you are spreading your risk across the whole market rather than on a single company. This allows for diversified exposure as most of the factors that affect individual companies are taken out of the equation

Tips

By taking a CFD position, a trader is essentially agreeing to exchange the difference in price of an index from one time period to another. Index CFDs are available to cover all the key indices around the world, which allows the trader in one country to take part in the world markets. In addition to the UK and US markets, CFDs cover the Aussie 200, the far Eastern markets, the German DAX and many others.
