Indices


As opposed to direct asset purchase, with the CFD index trade you participate in the market’s rising and falling prices of indices. The price of a CFD usually reflects the price of the underlying asset. The low capital investment (margin) and the associated leverage are further CFD characteristics. The DAX reflects the market value of the 30 largest DAX companies in points for instance.
Let’s take a hypothetical example. Assume the market value of DAX is 10,000 points. You decide to buy (long) 1 CFD of the DAX at 10,000 points. Now assume that the value of the DAX and thus the value of the CFD rises to 10,100 points. If you decide to sell (short) these at 10,100 points, the difference of 100 points is your profit. Since one point equals one euro, you have made 100 EUR profit. In another scenario we can have the Dax score dropping to 9,900. In this instance, you will lose 100 EUR as you sell at a price lower from the price you have purchased. With the acquisition of the CFD, market participants are only entitled to the difference between the purchase value and the sales value.
