What is Index CFD trading?
Stock market indices can be used by traders to speculate on the price movement of a specific index, or they can be used to hedge existing exposure that an investor might have in their separate stock portfolios. An investor may choose to take a short position on a stock market index to offset losses they are faced with in their existing stock portfolio.
It is impossible to keep track of every individual stock on any exchange and so using a stock market index to trade the overall market is a great way to measure and trade the overall performance of any given market
An example of leveaged CFD trading
Suppose you want to trade CFDs on the ASX200 stock market index. For this example, we will look at the AUS200. Lets suppose this instrument is trading at:
Lets say you decide to buy 10 contracts of AUS200 because you think the Australian stock market will rise in value. Your account leverage is 1:100. This means you need a minimum of 1% of the notional value of the position
Lets say in the few hours the price of AUS200 has moved to Bid: 6093.5 and Ask: 6095.5. At this point you have a winning trade and you could close the trade by selling at the price of 6093.5
