CFDs on indices offer a diversified way to trade global equity markets without having to identify, analyse, and trade specific stocks.
Many traders find this is a more efficient way to invest in the equity market, as they can focus on a few index CFDs rather than monitoring hundreds of global stocks.

“Spread from” is the lowest spread that can be offered on the given product. If the underlying market spread widens during the trading day, or if you are trading out of hours, the platform spread may also widen.

Please refer to the MT4 platform for more information.
This data is provided for general information only and may not be current. Please refer to the product properties section of the MT4 platform for real-time information on the spreads, margin requirements, commission (if applicable), and trading hours of a particular product.
Holding rates for index CFDs are based on the underlying interbank rate of the index plus a fixed markup of 2.5% on buy and sell positions. For the convenience of our clients, the MT4 platform displays holding costs in points per contract.
Like forex markets, the underlying exchange for indices is also closed on weekends. Therefore, a three-day holding cost is applied on Friday. Note: Any holidays will result in holding costs being charged before the holiday date.
