In indices trading, traders attempt to speculate on price movements of stock indices to make profit. Indices traders can either focus on a single index, or diversify and trade various indices as part of a wider strategy.
Indices are not bought or sold like stock or a commodity as they have no physical basis to trade, and are only the indicators of the price movements of several assets. Instead, to speculate on the movement of a number of indices, traders use derivatives like EFTs, CFDs and index futures. Indices price movements are impacted by political, economic factors, as well as industry specific factors, among many others.
