What is Indices trading?

Mobile devices

Trading indices is a great way to trade on the world’s financial markets without having to analyse the performance of an individual company stock.

Indices measure the performance of a group of shares from an exchange. Trading indices enables you to get exposure to an entire economy or sector at once, while only having to open a single position.

Zero Markets offer CFD indices trading on our MT4 & MT5 platforms. Benefit from low cost trading with margins starting as low as 1%

Learn to trade Indices

How does Indices trading work?

Indices trading is different to trading a stock or a currency because you benefit from the movements of an economy rather than a single company or currency. The movements of an index directly relate to the price movements of all of the shares within that index. When trading a single company you are putting all your eggs in one basket.

Index trading, on the other hand, allows you to benefit from 20, 50, 100 companies all at once. If one of these companies is struggling that doesn't mean the entire index will suffer. Although all types of trading involves risk, indices trading is often seen as a more stable option.
