Why Trade Index CFDs with Pepperstone?

Developed for retail traders, our index CFDs provide you with access to a wide range of global markets, enabling you to diversify your trading strategies across uncorrelated instruments. You can directly take advantage of the opportunities that global equities markets offer, and index CFDs are offered to all our clients without a dealing desk or commission.

Global opportunities

The world’s leading stock markets constantly change as the underlying publicly-traded companies of an index move up or down in value. This presents an exciting opportunity to trade on the direction of the major indices, by placing either a buy (go long) or sell (go short) order.

After-market hours

We are one of the few brokers offering extended trading hours, including international markets available in many different time zones. With 14 major stock markets around the world, you can take advantage of market movements in real-time as they happen.

Hedge your portfolio

Index CFDs are a great way to hedge other positions and with leverage are less capital-intensive.

Trading strategies

Major stock markets around the world can be affected by market movements in real-time. Our expert commentary and market analysis means you can make informed trading decisions when you need to.

Powerful platforms

We have three powerful trading platforms to suit your trading style: MetaTrader 5, MetaTrader 4, and cTrader. Each platform is free and available on mobile, tablet, desktop and our web app.
