Indices

Indices are the most popular form of CFDs. kumomarkets 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 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 kumomarkets MetaTrader 4, 5, and cTrader Platforms.
