How to trade Indices?

Trading CFD indices allows you to speculate on the direction of movement of the underlying index, without actually having physical ownership of any shares. For example, the DAX 40 tracks the 40 largest companies listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. This allows traders to speculate to an entire economy or sector at once, while only having to open a single position and not owning any of the 40 underlying company shares directly. Indices are considered to be highly liquid assets, and with more trading hours than most other markets, you get greater trading opportunities.
