Indices are baskets of stocks which represent the performance and measure the value of the particular stock market sector to which they belong. Each index is determined by the weighted average of the price of the stocks that comprise it and can be used to indicate the performance of a particular sector or even the health of the economy of a country.

Select your Indices
Indices are baskets of individual shares which are ranked by major banks or non-bank financial institutions and they can be divided between sector or region based.
When trading CFDs on Indices, you are essentially trading the economy of an entire sector or an entire region. As such, it’s important to understand that the performance of each index can be heavily affected by global events. Ensure that you have a good grasp on what may affect the index you have chosen.
