Trade CFD Indices
A Stock Index is a statistical measure of change in a securities market. Let’s take DAX (DE40.c) for instance which is an index containing the 40 major German companies listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The DAX index represent a small selection of the global stock market while it does not represent the German economy as a whole. Let’s go a stage deeper. BMW, Adidas, Bayer and BASF are all companies included in the DAX index. In effect, investing in the DAX index is a totally different decision than investing in BMW shares alone. If the performance of BMW company rises with 2% at the close of Frankfurt Stock Exchange this will have an effect on DAX index price but the index will not necessarily increase in value. Why? Because for the same trading period, other companies included in this index may not have performed so well.
We will use DAX (DE40.c) as an example. Let’s assume the price of the index is 10,000 points. Assume you decide to buy (long) 1 CFD of the DAX at 10,000 points. The value of the DAX and thus the value of the CFD rises to 10,100 points. Now assume you decide to close your long position at 10,100 points. The difference is +100 points. Since one point equals one euro, you have made a profit of 100 EUR. And vice versa. If the DAX drops to 9,900, you can lose 100 EUR if you close your long position at that lower price.
