Index Trading is a fairly simple principle based around making share
markets more predictable and accessible. A typical investment into a
share market involves the purchasing of shares in one or more listed
companies. Trading the market this way can produce spectacular or
disastrous results and everything in between. The problem with buying a
part share in a company is security. If a company ceases to be
profitable the shareholders are the first to lose their investment.
What if you could make just as much money when share markets are plunging as you could when market conditions were good?
Index Trading involves making smaller, short term trades
over a 60 minute window. When you place an index trade you choose an
entire stock market to trade on, not just one company, and you predict
whether the stock market will rise or fall over the next 60 minutes. The
beauty of this is that we can still use our share market trading
expertise and strategies to predict the outcome of the market without
needing to wait weeks or months to make a profit.
