Index trading

ATG WORLD's index trading is considered a CFD, and investors only need to trade through changes in the trading price, rather than buying actual assets. A stock index future refers to financial futures contracts that use the stock price index as the subject matter. According to the observation of the market, the expected risk of the stock market price index is shifted by the difference between opening and closing price.

    The stock index is a measure of the performance of the stock portfolio and is used as a benchmark by major news media and financial services companies. The most frequently quoted stock index consists of, the largest companies listed on national stock exchanges, such as the US S&P 500 Index, the German ADX Index, the UK FTSE 100 Index, and the Japan Nikkei 225 Index. The performance of the quoted stock index can reflect the investor's sentiment towards the country's economy.

    The index is generally traded on a futures exchange through a standard futures contract and is bought or sold based on its future estimated price. You can trade the index through the ATG WORLD platform.

The stock index is an important part of the financial market. In short, it is a number that represents the main stock listed on a particular exchange.

For example, the FTSE 100 Index represents the largest 100-price company listed on the London Stock Exchange. If, on an average, the stock prices of these companies rise, the FTSE 100 index will also rise. If the shares of these companies fall, the index will also fall. Most of the index is calculated based on a market-weighted average, which means that the value also reflects the size of each company; higher the market value ,greater the impact on the overall index.
Other examples of stock indices include:
  • Dow Jones, NASDAQ and Standard & Poor's (USA)
  • DAX and CAC (Europe)
  • Hang Seng, Nikkei and ASX (Asia Pacific)
Most of the index is calculated based on a market-weighted average, which means that the value also reflects the size of each company. The higher the market value of a particular company, the greater the impact on the overall index.
However, the Dow Jones and Nikkei are price-weighted indices, with higher price stocks having greater influence. This means that the transaction price is $100 and the share of the stock is 10 times that of the stock with a transaction price of ¥10.
