At ADSS, we give you the option to trade indices rather than individual equities, enabling you to speculate on the performance of market benchmarks. In much the same way as forex trading is used, indices are often chosen by traders as a tool to diversify their portfolios and hedge against risk.

What are Indices?

Indices are statistical measures of change in portfolios of stocks which represent portions of their markets. In simple terms, each index is a benchmark of the value of a bundle of stocks. They are useful because it can often be difficult to individually track every instrument trading in a country. By offering a sampling of the market, trading is therefore simplified.

Reasons to Trade Indices

By allowing traders to take a broader view of a group of equities, indices reduce the risk that comes from trading the stocks or shares of individual companies. When trading global equity indices, traders are also able to diversify their portfolios geographically, creating the potential to profit from market movements around the globe.
