Indices trading refers to the buying and selling of baskets of stocks that represent a market index. These indices, such as the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, or the NASDAQ, are indicators that measure and reflect the performance of specific stock market sectors or the entire market. Traders don’t own the individual stocks but trade on the direction of the index itself.
Indices provide traders with exposure to entire sectors or stock markets at once, ensuring diversification with a single trade.
Avoid the volatility and unpredictability associated with individual stocks. Indices smoothen out the individual highs and lows of the companies they represent.

When you engage in indices trading, you're speculating on the future direction of the price. If you believe that a specific index will rise in value, you would go long or buy. Conversely, if you believe the index will fall, you would sell or go short.

CFD is the short form for Contract For Difference, and it is an agreement which enables traders to speculate on the price of a financial instrument without actually owning the asset. The price of the CFD is derived from the price of the instrument. This means that if you buy/sell a CFD, your exposure is the same as if you had bought/sold the actual asset.
