Index CFDs trading features and advantages
Indexes (also known as stock indexes or stock market indexes) contain a series of representative company stocks that can be used to evaluate the performance of a country's economy, stock exchange, or an industry. Compared with traditional stock trading, index trading allows investors to trade a group of company stocks in a more comprehensive perspective, thereby reducing the risk of trading a company's stocks individually, and thus making index trading an increasingly popular investment product.
CFD is a contract transaction that does not involve the exchange of any physical goods or securities, but is a transaction method that only uses the difference between the settlement price and the contract price for cash settlement.
  • Diversified Index Products
  • Due to the wide variety of indexes in the market, HAU has carefully selected the index CFDs that are the most traded in the world and most popular with investors, including: Dow Jones 30 Index, Nasdaq 100 Index and Hong Kong Hang Seng Index, etc. It can support up to 7 index products for customers to choose.
  • "Lot-based" trading system
  • The lot size of the index product is an actual contract Example: a NAS100 contract with 1 lot and 1 index point is equal to 1 US dollar, which means that all index products are aggregated into standard trading units, and these units are usually equal to the contract size of the subject matter. This not only simplifies the transaction, allows customers to increase the number of transactions, but also provides a reference price for each lot of trading units.
  • Competitive transaction cost
  • The average spread of the index product S&P500 can be as low as 0.5 Pip, to achieve a commitment of zero commission and no transaction fees for customers, and comprehensively reduce transaction costs.
  • Flexible Leverage ratio
  • HAU can provide customers with a flexible leverage ratio. Customers can adjust the leverage ratio independently according to their own trading strategies and risk preferences, up to 400 times.
    Index CFDs Trading Example:
    Since index trading is similar to Forex trading, both can be two-way traded. Investors can make index trading a good hedging tool by going long (buy) or short (sell). Suppose that the investor predicts that the stock price of HSBC will increase in the future, so he buys the stock. At the same time, investors can short index trades as hedging to prevent the negative effects of counter-trend fluctuations.
    Example: Miss Zhang predicted that the S & P 500 index had signs of going up in the future, so she bought 20 Lots of S & P 500 index contracts at the price of 3039.42 and sold the 20 contract at 3042.57 to close the position.
    Profit/Loss=(Ask price - Bid price)x Lots x Contract Value ± Overnight interest - Commission
    = (3042.57-3039.42)x 20 Lots x 1USD / Pip ± 0 - 0
    = 3.15Pip x 20Lots x 1USD/Point
    = USD $63

    note:
    [1] Floating spreads may change in response to market changes, the actual spreads are subject to platform display
    [2] Fluctuations in market conditions may lead to gaps, and the freezing level and trading limit / stop-loss orders will also be adjusted at any time depending on market fluctuations. We strive to execute all orders at the price required by the limit order when market conditions permit.
    [3] The numbers in parentheses refer to the spread when the relevant spot market is closed.
    [4] Trading hours may be adjusted in response to market holidays. If you need the latest transaction time data, please contact us through "Live Chat".
    Note: Stock Divident
    Dividend payment is applicable to most cash indicators. As the position of the client changes, the adjustment of the payment / payment of dividends is made in the form of withdrawal / deposit. When a stock is ex-dividend, the price of such stock will theoretically decrease as the amount of dividends decreases. In fact, this situation is uncommon because there are many market forces that are forcibly affecting stock prices.
    The extent to which index cash CFDs fall depends on the weight of stocks in the index. If more than one index CFD is ex-dividend on the same day, then the pip of each equity will theoretically cause the price of index to fall. HAU also has the opportunity to collect or pay dividends to customers with CFD positions.
