An index is a grouping of stocks, perhaps the best-known index is the Dow Jones. The value of an index is usually one share of each of the stocks that make up the index. An index allows you to benefit from moves of an overall sector as well as the stocks making up the index.
Indices include the S&P500, the Germany 30, the France 40 as well as the NASDAQ and the FTSE 100. You can trade a variety of global indices with Rockfort Markets.
