Trade Indices

Trade the world’s most liquid stock exchange Indices such as the UK 100, Wall Street and Germany 30 with a broker you can trust.

What are Indices?

Indices are assets that are grouped together and represent the collective price performance of a number of shares, specific sectors of a market or a whole market. Indices are generally traded with financial derivatives such as CFDs or spread bets.

Why trade Indices?

Index trading is a relatively secure form of trading and the risks of trading indices are lower than the risks of investing in individual stocks

They are the least manipulative financial instruments

Unlike individual companies, indices cannot go bankrupt because they are composed of individual shares
