Index CFDs

Index CFDs (Contracts for Difference) are derivatives that allow investors to speculate on the performance of an index without having to buy the index itself. 

An Index CFD is usually traded on the basis of a reference index, such as the S&P 500, Dow Jones, Nasdaq or the DAX. The price of the index CFD is affected by the price of the reference index, and the investor can speculate on price movements of the index in either direction.

Unlike direct purchase of the index, index CFDs allow participation in the price movement, with a smaller capital investment.
