Market Index: A Collection of Stocks
Stock indices give you a chance to trade an opinion of an economy without having to pick individual stocks. CFD trading is one of the most popular products to trade
Investing in stocks has a wide appeal globally, but the barrier to entry can often be high. Say you want to invest in an economy through an index to attempt to mirror the performance of that economy. You could simply buy shares in all the stocks on the index, but that could get costly, especially in light of broker’s fees for transactions. Some turn to the futures market, trading the index through an ETF. The ETF is a fund that has shares in all the stocks in the index. With ETFs, you generally have 100% margin, meaning you have to put up the full value of the index to participate.
We would like to highlight that trading on margin doesn’t come without risks, as retail clients could sustain a total loss of deposited funds, where Professional clients could sustain losses in excess of their invested capital.
Before starting to trade, you should always ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
