Can you trade indices long and short?
Yes, you can trade our indices long (bullish) or short (bearish) to benefit from rising and falling markets.
Are your index CFDs based on cash market prices or futures?
Our CFD indices are derived from cash market prices. Please see our Trading Hours Table for more detailed information.
Which currencies are stock market indices traded in?
Indices trade in the currency of the country their exchange is listed in. For example, the FTSE 100 trades in GBP, DAX in EUR, S&P 500 in USD, ASX 200 in AUD and Nikkei 225 in JPY.
Are index CFDs a leveraged product?
Yes, our index CFDs are leveraged, which means margin requirements are lower to initiate a trade at a fraction of the cost of the market.
Can I hedge index CFDs or ‘pair trade’ them?
Yes, you can do both. You can enter long or short the same index to partially or fully-hedge that trade. But you could also ‘pair trade’ indices by going long one index and short another, to create a spread trade (or pairs trade) strategy.
