Target Spreads

The Spread is the difference between the ‘bid price’ and the ‘offer price’. The bid price is where the investor can sell a position and the offer price is where the investor can buy a position. Given that markets are all about supply and demand, the more liquid and active a product is, the smaller the spread between the buying and selling price thus, making it a more competitive option for traders.

Competitive Swaps

Swaps, also known as rollovers, are interest rate amounts charged or earned for holding a buy or sell position overnight. The calculation takes into consideration the interest rate differential between two currencies (each currency has its own interest rate). Swaps are also applicable on Currencies and vary for several reasons, including overnight interest rates. Swap free accounts are also available.

Indices Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Indices measure the price performance of a group of shares found on an exchange. For example, the S&P 500 tracks the 500 biggest companies in the US in terms of market value.

  • Most global indices are calculated based on market cap, meaning that the companies with a larger market cap tend to have more influence on the price of the index compared to smaller ones. Other calculation methods exist such as the price-weighted approach of the Dow Jones, allowing stocks with a higher price to have more influence.

  • The most popular and most traded ones are the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the German Dax, the Nasdaq 100, the FTSE 100, and the S&P 500. Other heavily traded indices include the Japanese Nikkei, the Hang Seng, and the European Euro Stoxx.

  • The price of indices is affected by a range of factors such as:
    ● Economic releases and central bank policies
    ● Geopolitical tension
    ● Company events (earnings, corporate actions, etc…)
    ● Currency fluctuations

  • CFI offers CFDs on Indices which allows you to trade with leverage and without owning the actual index and its constituents. You can freely go long or short and with no restrictions. Other derivatives exist and include futures, options, and ETFs.

  • With CFI, you can trade 0.01 lots or 1% of the typical size of a contract. This allows you for greater flexibility when trading or investing.

  • Each index has a set of trading hours although most of them trade for the majority of the day. Please refer to our Indices page here .

  • Some indices can be very volatile, posting large price movements on a daily basis. For example, the Dow Jones has occasionally moved over 1000 points in a single day, making it a rather volatile and fast-moving product.
