INDICES

Our MT4 platform is the perfect environment for trading on some of the world’s most liquid stock exchange indices. Indices are a massive part of the global financial markets. They represent an index’s most valuable shares, with all companies contributing to the overall value. The value of the index rises goes up and down depending on the fortunes of its respective companies. We offer you opportunities to trade European, Asian & US indices. You can trade long or short, meaning you can diversify your trading strategies across uncorrelated instruments, as well as take advantage of the different opportunities that global equities markets present. With flexible leverage and real time pricing linked to actual stock market performance, indices with low spreads offer the chance to profit from small price movements on global markets.

TRADE. GLOBAL EXCHANGES

  • Access to global indices directly on our MT4 platform
  • Trade on a macro economic level and diversify your trading portfolio.
  • Reduce your exposure to individual stocks and benefit from positive trade winds.

*** Intuitively, if the tick price is rounded to two decimal places, then the point size is 0.01. In other words, 1 point= 0.01 currency. If the tick price is an integer, then the point size is 1. In other words, 1 point=1 currency. For example, 1 point equals to 1 penny for UK100, whereas 1 point equals to 1 cent for China50.

Trading FOREX and CFD’s is high risk. Losses can exceed deposits.
