Indices

The Most Innovative way to Trade Groups of Publicly Traded Companies

What are Indices?

A financial index is composed of public companies traded on a particular stock exchange or drawn from a particular field. The index calculates the collective market performance of all its component companies and publishes the figures. Indices are seen as accurate barometers of market sentiment, as well as the economic strength indicators. It is possible to open trades on the market performance of several indices, investing in the points change in their values.

There are many prominent indices, as well as less familiar ones from emerging markets available at Octa.Trade. Some of the biggest indices are the FTSE 100, S&P 500, NASDAQ-100, and DAX. When traded, indices generally perform in a similar way to stocks.

Indices trading is like any other form of transaction. The goal is to buy Indices at a low price and sell them at a high price.
