What are CFD Indices?

The perfectly balanced way of trading on the top financial markets

CFD Indices are financial instruments representing the value of publicly-trading companies. This way, you can trade on the top markets in the world without analyzing the performance of the stock of an individual company.

CFD index trading refers to making profits on the price movements of the indexes. With CFDs, you can speculate on the price movements of the world’s popular indices, in both rising and falling markets and go long or short.

There are multiple indices available in the market, for trading, and traders can measure the performances of these indices i.e., multiple stock markets. With CFD indices, traders can trade on a single index and make a profit or even place trades on various indices if they have a wider trading strategy to make profits.

Some of the most popular and majorly traded indices in the world are – the FTSE 100, Dow Jones, The DAX, NASDAQ 100, Nikkei 225, CAC 40, etc.
