What are Indices?
Stock Indices are representations of the top shares from a specific exchange. You can trade major financial indices with Trade GC on European, US as well as Japanese stock exchanges.
An index is a statistical measure of the changes in a portfolio of stocks representing a portion of the overall market. It would be too difficult to track every single stock trading in the country. To get around this, we take a smaller sample of the market that is representative of the whole. Thus, just as pollsters use political surveys to gauge the sentiment of the population, investors use indexes to track the performance of the stock market. Ideally, a change in the price of an index represents an exactly proportional change in the stocks included in the index.
A commodity market is a market that trades in the primary economic sector rather than manufactured products. Soft commodities are agricultural products such as wheat, coffee, cocoa, and sugar. Hard commodities are mined, such as gold and oil. Investors access to the major commodity markets worldwide with purely financial transactions increasingly outnumbering physical trades in which goods are delivered. Futures contracts are the oldest way of investing in commodities. Futures are secured by physical assets. Commodity markets can include physical trading and derivatives trading using spot prices, forwards, futures, and options on futures. Farmers have used a simple form of derivative trading in the commodity market for centuries for price risk management.
