Indices

Stock market movements and volatility are monitored and reported on 24 hours a day around the world. IFS Markets Index CFD trading allows traders simple, cost effective access to opportunities to benefit from that volatility.

The Index CFDs track the movement of the major share market indices of the world, such as the Dow Jones index, the S&P 500, the ASX200 and others, enabling the trader to take a position based on their overall view of the market rather than investigating individual stocks and building a portfolio. Market information and analysis of the indices is widely available in helping the trader to assess the market conditions and develop Index trading strategies. Index CFDs allow traders to short sell the index to enable profitable trades in a falling market or to use the Index CFD as a hedge against an existing share portfolio in a falling market.

Index CFDs allow traders to maximise their exposure to the share index markets with minimum investment of their own capital by the judicious use of the leverage available through Index CFD trading. Gain access to a wide array of share indices from around the globe simply, quickly and cost effectively. Index CFD trading spreads the risk over the entire selection of 'blue chip' stock that make up the selected index rather than investing in an individual company
