What are indices?

Indices represent a collection of stocks organised by industry sector or country with their aggregate performance being tracked. Indices are particularly useful for monitoring the broader stock market's general performance. As well as providing a singular tradable instrument for gaining exposure in all the indices constituent stocks.

How Indices trading works

Indices trading allows you to trade on the performance of a group of stocks without needing to buy shares in each individual company. If you think the value of the index is likely to rise, you can simply buy the index. If you think the value of the index is likely to fall, you can sell it.

Bid and ask prices

Each indice is quoted with two prices, the 'Bid' price and the 'Ask' price. The bid price is the price at which you can sell the indice. While the ask price is the price at which you can buy it. The ask price is always higher than the bid price and the difference between these prices is called the 'Spread'.

Go long or short

The basic idea is to buy (go long) when you think the indice will appreciate in value and sell (go short) when you think it will depreciate in value. Just like buying something at a lower price and trying to sell it at a higher price to profit. You can trade indices long or short, meaning that you can trade rising as well as falling prices.

Indices are traded in lots

When trading indices, trades are placed in terms of lots. Where one lot is usually the equivalent to trading 10 indices contracts. You can also trade mini lots (1 indices contract) or micro lots (1/10th of an indices contract). Check our contracts specifications page to learn more about indices lot sizes.

Indices trading involves leverage and margin

Indices trading involves using leverage, which allows you to place trades of a much larger value than the amount you have in your trading account. For example, trading with 100:1 leverage would allow you to buy 1 indices contract at only 1% of its current market value. Leverage can magnify potential profits but it also increases risk and speeds up losses.

Indices trading example

You decide to buy 0.1 lots of the S&P500 at 4500 using 100:1 leverage.

chart
Trade size:

10 indices contracts x 4500 = USD 45,000

Position value:

USD 45,000

Margin requirement:

USD 45,000 / 100 = USD 450

Now you have opened a long position in the S&P500 worth USD 45,000. Since indices are traded using leverage, only $450 was used as margin from your trading account. After some time, the price of the S&P500 moves and you decide to sell.

Scenario 1

chart

The S&P500 moves up from 4500 to 4600 and you decide to sell.

This is how the profit or loss on the trade would be calculated.

P/L = (Current price - Initial price) x Position value / Current price

P/L = ((4600 - 4500) x 45,000) / 4,600

(100 x 45,000) / 4,600

P/L = 978.26

Scenario 2

chart

The S&P500 moves down from 4500 to 4400 and you decide to sell.

This is how the profit or loss on the trade would be calculated.

P/L = ((Current price - Initial price) x Position value) / Current price

P/L = ((4400 - 4500) x 45,000) / 4,400

P/L = (-100 x 45,000) / 4,600

P/L = -978.26
