Indices trading

What is Indices Trading?

Indices trading refers to the buying and selling of baskets of stocks that represent a market index. These indices, such as the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, or the NASDAQ, are indicators that measure and reflect the performance of specific stock market sectors or the entire market. Traders don’t own the individual stocks but trade on the direction of the index itself.

How Does Indices Trading Work?

When you engage in indices trading, you're speculating on the future direction of the price. If you believe that a specific index will rise in value, you would go long or buy. Conversely, if you believe the index will fall, you would sell or go short.
