Indices

Indices CFDs are simply called “Indices” by Brokerage Firms. They behave like normal CFDs but the underlying assets are Global Indices such as the S&P500, Nasdaq, Euro Stoxx 50 and so forth. The emphasis when trading a Global Index as CFD is on the overall performance of the market rather than single stock investment. Due to this, risk is spread out.

Why trade Indices as CFDs

A Contract for Difference, CFD in short, is a financial derivative commonly described as a contract between the Investor (Trader) and the CFD provider (Broker). CFDs are traded on Margin without requiring the actual purchase and physical delivery of the underlying asset. This allows for speculative trades where investors can profit bidirectionally; that is, both from rising and falling prices respectively.
