What Are Indices?

World indices are indicators of price changes for a certain group of securities. The stock exchange index can be explained as a “basket” of shares united by a common basis. Trading indices can be compared to opening positions on the courses of several dozen stocks at once.

The most important thing is determining the exact stocks or bonds each index is formed from. The set of shares included in the spot index value calculation determines the information that can be obtained by observing the dynamics of its course.

In general, the main purpose of world indices is to create a powerful indicator for investors to characterise the direction of companies’ quotes in a particular industry. Studying the dynamics of major indices helps to understand the impact of certain events on the value of securities.

During trading indices, keep in mind that the reaction to the economic news published may not correspond with expectations and forecasts.

For example, if there is a rise in oil prices, it is logical to expect an increase in the shares of all the oil companies.

However, different stocks grow at different speeds, while some of them may not respond to such news at all. In this case, the spot index helps traders to understand the overall trend of this market segment without the need to assess the position of lots of different companies.

Observation and trading indices give insights into how the different sectors of the economy trade in comparison with each other. Here at PlusFX we are glad to offer the trading of CFD on major indices, which makes it possible to join the price movement not only for a rise, but also a fall.

Like mutual funds, indexed annuities are tied to a trading index. However, rather than the fund sponsor trying to put together an investment portfolio likely to closely mimic the index in question, these securities feature a rate of return that follows a particular index but typically have caps on the returns they provide.
For example, if an investor buys an annuity indexed to the Dow Jones and it has a cap of 10%, its rate of return will be between 0 and 10%, depending on the annual changes to that index. Indexed annuities allow investors to buy securities that grow along with broad market segments or the total market.
Trading indices is popular among PlusFX traders due to its comprehensive terms, accurate quotes from several suppliers and versatile analytics. After all, in order to understand the logic of the index behaviour, you need to pay attention to the corporate news of each of the companies included, as well as on events affecting the wider industry as a whole.
