Why trade Index CFDs? 

Trading Indices offers access to a whole new range of markets, meaning you can diversify your trading strategies across uncorrelated instruments as well as take advantage of the different opportunities that global equities markets present. 

Stock Indices also offer a way to hedge your existing equities market exposure and dampen (or heighten) the impact of stock market volatility. 

With flexible leverage and real time pricing linked to actual stock market performance, indices with low spreads offer the potential to profit from small price movements on global markets. 

Popular Stock Index CFDs we offer include the AUS200, US30, HK50, Japan 225 and the GER30 amongst many others. Find out more
