Equity helps in trading the underlying stocks and shares without needing to take ownership of them.

b.    Stock Indices: One full point movement in a Stock Index is equal to one currency unit of the country the index belongs to. For example, one point movement in DJIA30, S&P500 or NASDAQ100 would be equal to US$1. Number of points movement in a Stock Index multiplied by the number of CFD contracts you trade (minimum is 1 CFD contract), determines your profit or loss. Click here for more information.
