Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Trade?
Basically, you open a buy order if you expect the price to go up and open a sell order when you expect the price to go down. That means that you buy a certain amount at a lower price now, in order to sell it back at a higher price later and gain profit from the price difference and vice versa.
How do I make a profit?
There are many strategies that allow you to profit from currency price fluctuations, for example scalping, martingale, hedging, news trading and many others.
Alternatively, you can use automated trading software that can help you in making trading decisions or even open and close positions for you.
How do I predict whether the price is going to rise or fall?
As a beginner you can simply track the general direction of the price on the chart and open buy orders when it goes up and sell orders when it goes down. This may not guarantee you profit in all cases, however it is a good start for developing your strategy.
If you have little to no experience yet, it would be advisable to avoid trading during major news releases since the market tends to be highly volatile. Two more advanced methods of price prediction are technical analysis and fundamental analysis. Basic risk management techniques may also prove beneficial in reducing losses.

What are Index CFDs?
By definition, an index is a statistical evaluation of how the price in a selection of stocks has changed over time that allows to traders to assess overall performance of a certain market. Depending on the selection criteria, indices may be classified as national, global, industry or exchange based. Moreover, various calculation methods allow to subdivide them into price weighted stock indices, value (or market cap) weighted indices, and equally weighted stock indices.
An index is basically a statistical value, which cannot be traded directly. However, it is possible to profit from index fluctuations through a derivative, a security which value is derived from an underlying asset. Derivatives can be either exchange based (e.g. futures and options) or over-the-counter (e.g. CFDs). The former are traded through an organized exchange while the latter are traded between two parties.
How do I trade Index CFDs?
The major stock market indices such as FTSE 100, Dow Jones, S&P and Germany’s DAX index tend to respond well to technical analysis and are generally more preferred by short term traders. Other popular indices include France’s CAC-40 and Japan’s Nikkei 225.
Fundamentals-wise, it would mainly depend on the country the index originates from as well as the economic sectors it represents. Below you will find a brief description of the major indices we offer for trading.
