What are indices?

Indices measure the performance of a group of shares that are listed on a stock market.

Because there are no underlying physical assets to exchange, indices are traded with financial derivatives like CFDs.

How can you trade indices in the UAE?

  1. Create an IG trading account
  2. Research the index you want to trade
  3. Decide how you want to trade
  4. Take steps to manage your risk
  5. Open and monitor your position

Benefits of index trading

  • Speculate on a group of shares for less than the cost of trading them individually
  • Get exposure to an entire sector or economy at once
  • Hedge against a drop in the value of your share portfolio
