We offer a flexible way to trade stock indices on margin using CFDs. These instruments have some important advantages over conventional exchange-traded stock index futures contracts:
We quote prices on leading stock indices even when the underlying markets are closed.
You can trade stock indices with Limited Risk, so your maximum possible loss is known exactly in advance.
The price we quote is based on the level of the index, not the future. So you do not need to worry about changes in the level of premium or discount between the future and the index.
A CFD position on a stock index remains open until you decide to close it. There are no automatic expiries or roll-overs to worry about.
Flexible transaction sizes
You do not need to deal in a round number of contracts. Provided your transaction is above the minimum size (normally one contract), you can deal in fractions of a contract. We also offer mini contracts for most stock indices.
We quote you a price and you can deal immediately. It is not necessary to work an order in the market
