Indices

Gain exposure to the basket of instruments making up the index in just one trade. The world’s most popular Indices are available on all IB Markets trading platforms.

Indices are the most popular form of CFDs. IB Markets has a large range of Indices from around the world to choose from, including the Australian S&P 200 Index, UK FTSE 100 Index, US E-mini S&P 500 and US DJIA Index.

A stock index is a good indicative measure of market performance. Indices such as the FTSE 100 and DJIA Index are baskets of blue chip stocks listed on the exchange and are generally a good measure of the current market sentiment. A change in the performance of any constituent stock in an index is reflected in a change in the overall value of that index.

Indices

Indices have the advantage of allowing traders to take a wider view of a basket of stocks rather than taking a view on one individual stock alone. Online CFD and futures based indices are offered on both IB Markets MetaTrader 4, 5, and cTrader Platforms.

Indices Trading Example

Buying: Australia 200 Index

The gross profit on your trade is calculated as follows:

Opening Price

4951

Closing Price

4970

Difference

19

Gross Profit on Trade

19.00 points x 2 contracts ($2 per point) = AUD $38.00

Opening the Position

The price of the Australia 200 Index is 4950.00/4951.00. You are of the view that blue-chip stocks are undervalued so you decide to buy 2 contracts at 4951.00. (One contract is equal to $1 per index point). No commission is charged on Indices.

For every point that the bid quote on the Australia 200 Index rises above 4951.00 you will make a profit of $2 AUD, for every point the bid quote falls below 4951.00 you will lose $2 AUD.

Closing the Position

Four days later, the Australia 200 Index has risen to 4970.00/4971.00 and you decide to take your profit.

You close your position by selling 2 contracts at 4970.00.
