Indices

Gain exposure to the basket of instruments making up the index in just one trade.
The world’s most popular Indices are available on all IFP Markets trading platforms.

Indices are the most popular form of CFDs. IFP Markets has a large range of Indices from around the world to choose from, including the Australian S&P 200 Index, UK FTSE 100 Index, US E-mini S&P 500 and US DJIA Index.

A stock index is a good indicative measure of market performance. Indices such as the FTSE 100 and DJIA Index are baskets of blue chip stocks listed on the exchange and are generally a good measure of the current market sentiment. A change in the performance of any constituent stock in an index is reflected in a change in the overall value of that index.

Indices have the advantage of allowing traders to take a wider view of a basket of stocks rather than taking a view on one individual stock alone. Online CFD and futures based indices are offered on both IFP Markets MetaTrader 4, 5, and cTrader Platforms.

(Spot) Equity Indices Spreads

IFP Markets offers competitive spreads across all of our cash Indices, including the E-mini S&P 500 Index from 0.5 points, the FTSE 100 Index from 1 point, Xetra DAX Index from 1 point and S&P 200 Index from 1 point.

Futures Indices

In addition to Equity Indices, IFP Markets also offers Futures Indices: ICE Dollar Index and VIX Ind

Closing Price

Difference

Gross Profit on Trade
19.00 points x 2 contracts ($2 per point) = AUD $38.00

Opening the Position

The price of the United Kingdom 200 Index is 4950.00/4951.00. You are of the view that blue-chip stocks are undervalued so you decide to buy 2 contracts at 4951.00. (One contract is equal to $1 per index point). No commission is charged on Indices.
