Trade Indices

An index or indices is a way of gathering sentiments about the overall market, giving you an

indication of whether you are in a bull or bear market. You can trade indices rather than just stocks

giving you exposure to every company quoted on that index since there is a wide variety of

companies quoted on the major indices.

Some indecis includes: Dow Jones, Nasdaq and S&P (US) DAX and CAC (Europe)

Hang Seng, Nikkei and ASX (Asia-Pacific). Most of these are calculated using a

capitalisation-weighted average, which means the size of each company is taken into account. The

more a particular company is worth, the more its share price will affect the index as a whole.

Why trading Indices?

More available leverage than trading shares - The leverage possible with Index future contracts

creates a profitable environment for even trades of a few percent index gain.

Less technical analysis - investors are able to spend more time on analyzing one chart, then

trying to screen through thousands of stocks for the right company

High liquidity - The highly liquid market also creates tighter spreads which translates into less

money spent per transaction.

No need to screen stocks for fundamental data - A lot of time is saved from not having to

analyze financial reports. The trader will spend most of his time looking at the big picture and

overall market sentiment."

Buy at 5501.5

What happens next?

The market rallies dramatically, moving up 149 points by 4.50pm, when



funding is calculated. It drops back a little overnight, down 10 points from

4.50pm the previous day.

Sell at 5639.5


Overall market movement & profit/loss

5639.5 – 5501.5 = 138


Each contract is worth A$25

Net loss = A$3,517.26
