FAQs

  • What are CFD indices?

    To best answer this question, let’s first examine what CFDs are. Contracts for difference (CFDs) are financial instruments that allow traders to profit from price fluctuations in various assets without owning them. When trading CFDs, you’re essentially entering into an agreement with a broker to exchange the difference in the asset’s price between the opening and closing of the contract.

    In this case, CFD indices are financial derivatives that allow traders to speculate on the price movements of stock market indices without owning the underlying assets. CFD Indices also often offer leverage, which allows traders to control a larger position with a relatively smaller amount of capital.

  • What CFD indices can I trade with VT Markets?

    With VT Markets, traders can access the world’s most liquid global stock exchange indices, including BVSPX, CHINA50, CHINA50ft, GER40, GER40ft, DJ30 and DJ30ft.

  • How much leverage can I trade with indices?

    VT Markets offers traders the ability to use leverage of up to 500:1 for index CFD trading. Just keep in mind that while leverage can amplify profits, it also increases potential losses, so it’s important to use it cautiously and understand the associated risks before trading.

  • What platforms can I use to trade indices at VT Markets?

    VT Markets provides access to trade indices through the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) trading platform. MetaTrader 4 is a popular and widely used trading platform that offers various features for trading different financial instruments, including indices.

    You can use the MT4 platform to trade a range of CFD indices, speculate on their price movements and utilise the platform’s charting tools and technical indicators to make informed trading decisions. Traders can download MT4 via the VT Markers website and install it on their chosen trading device.

  • Can I use automated trading strategies for trading indices at VT Markets?

    Yes, VT Markets allows traders to implement automated trading strategies to assist with their trading style. For instance, Expert Advisors (EAs) are automated trading programs developed in MQL4 (or MQL5 for MetaTrader 5) that execute trades based on predefined conditions. If you have a trading strategy for index CFD trading, you can code it into an EA or use a pre-built EA and set it up on the trading platform.

    However, before using an EA on a live trading account, it’s crucial to thoroughly backtest it through historical data or on a demo account. This allows you to ensure the EA functions as intended without risking real money.

  • What factors should I consider when trading indices?

    Like any CFD trading, there are many factors to consider to ensure the asset aligns with your trading goals. It’s important to first thoroughly analyse the index you’re trading through fundamental and technical analysis to understand the current and potential future market trends.

    Understand how the index you’re trading correlates with other markets, such as currencies, commodities and other indices. Correlations can affect how an index moves and reacts to events.

    You’ll also need to determine whether you will use short- and long-term trading strategies, as different approaches yield different results. And, of course, avoid concentrating all your trades on a single index. Diversifying your portfolio across different CFD indices can help spread risk.

  • Why should I trade indices with VT Markets?

    With several liquid global stocks to choose from and leverage of up to 500:1, there are many reasons traders should consider VT Markets to conduct trading.
