What are Indices?
Indices are financial instruments which provide a measure of the specific stock market. They are used to represent the value of several stocks from a country, aggregated as one value, and to benchmark the performance of portfolios.
Indices allow investors to analyze the markets, identify the market pattern and trends which helps them take better investment decisions. Investors do not need individual reports for this, just the bullish or bearish positions are enough.

How Index CFD Trading Works?
Index or Indices are values of a group of stocks, therefore they cannot be sold or purchased directly. The only way to trade indices is through a product such as ETFs, futures, and CFDs which track the prices of underlying indexes and allow you to trade indices. You sell or buy derivatives i.e. opinions, instead of physical assets.
Stock indices calculation is based on different factors such as company performance, productivity, prices, and employment. Most indices are calculated on the capitalization-weighted average, which means the size of the company within an index impacts its price. Another way is price-weighted, which means the price per share for each stock affects the index’s price.
