Indices trading available for everyone
Stock indices reflect the value of a certain group of shares, selected and calculated in a special way. In other words, a stock index is a kind of "basket" of stocks. Despite the fact that indices are not a popular trading instrument, mini contracts on the S&P 500 stock index are among the most popular trading tools in the United States.
The Advantages of Stock CFDs Trading
Use a leverage up to 1:1000 to get the maximum out of your deposit funds.
Technical Analysis Friendly
Indices are more prone to technical analysis. Use it to predict the index value.
Macroeconomic indicators are among the most important news to estimate indices moves.
Why should you consider trading indices?
Equity markets are usually growing markets. Unlike Forex, which is a flatter market and trends are much less common. Stock indices usually grow slowly, but can fall quickly and sharply.
Stock indices have trends that are easier to follow, compared to currencies, usually in any timeframe. If the indices grow, they can grow or fall throughout the session with almost no kickbacks.
Seasonality in the trade
Stock indices have a pronounced seasonality. In some months they mostly grow, for example, in December (the so-called Christmas rally), while in others they usually fall, for example, in May or October.
Technical analysis can be reasonable
Stock indices are very technical - and all technical analysis figures, candlesticks, levels, etc. apply to them.
Difficult to manipulate
Unlike currency markets, stock indices are much more difficult to manipulate. They consist of dozens of different stocks and it is virtually impossible to “move” a whole index.
