Trading Indices

Also known as equity indices, stock indices are actual stock market indexes, monitoring the value of a particular area of the stock market. They can represent an individual stock market or a specific group of a country’s largest companies. In basic terms, stock indices are indexes that represent the overall price of a set of stocks.

How Trading Indices works

Stock indices are intended to give traders an indication the general trend of the general economy, or a specific stock market. They can be used to hedge existing equities’ exposure to the market, and dampen or heighten the effect of fluctuations in the stock market.
