Trading Indices Online

Traditionally, a stock market index measures of the value of different sectors of the stock market, in relation to each other. Typically it is calculated as a weighted average price of selected stocks. Financial managers and investors use indices as a frame of reference to understand the growth of different market sectors by comparison to their own strategy. Certain indices, like the S&P 500, have many versions. These groupings can change based on the weighting of the different components that are being measured.

Indices Trading Examples

Now let’s see how some Indices positions look in the actual market. The most straightforward way is by going through the calculations involved.

Now let’s take 5 Lot CFD contracts of the S&P 500 bought at a market price of $1400. The USD value of the position will be: 5 Contracts X $1400= $7,000 With a margin requirement of 1% (1:100) the result will be $1400 required to open the position.

Let’s take a 0.5 Lot CFD contract in the NASDAQ bought at a market price of $2640. The USD value of the position will be: 0.5 X $2640= $1320 With a margin requirement of 1% (1:100) the result will be $13.20 required to open the position.

-It should be noted a client may choose to speculate in all stock markets, but margin requirements will be calculated by the base currency (USD, EURO,GBP) chosen for the account by the client.

* Please Note: As with currency pairing swaps, when commodity or indices positions are held by clients overnight there is a rate charged as follows from the 21st of May 2013.
