Why Trade Global Indices with GO

Indices offer a diversified way to trade the movements of the global equity markets without the need to identify, trade or directly own any specific stocks or group of stocks.

For many traders, it means you can focus your efforts on a few index CFDs as opposed to having to analyse hundreds of stocks in order to make a trading decision.

Trading indices with GO allows you to get access to the Cash CFD, which means you're simply trading on the movement of the index's prices rather than purchasing the underlying futures contract. This allows you to trade in small contract sizes, which is perfect for those who are just starting out.

If you are looking to test an Index CFD trading system live on MT4, you can do so using a live trading account and test your system from as little as $0.10 per point movement.


Trade Your Preferred Index CFDs both Long and Short

Another great advantage of trading Index CFDs is the ability to go both long and short. When you are looking to benefit from the index moving higher it means you will be trading long and when you are looking to benefit from the index falling, it means you will be trading short.

Full Range of Indices to Trade

Below is the full list of the global indices you get access to via our MetaTrader 4 trading platform. Please note that all indices offered are provided as a CFD.

GO Markets will automatically roll any open positions in Futures CFD contracts which will result in paying the spread (value of ASK – BID price) upon the roll. The rollover arises when the underlying instrument associated with a CFD is due for expiry and GO Markets begins to price the CFD from the next available futures contract. As the next dated futures contract trades at either a discount or a premium to the expiring futures contract, your trading account will be credited or debited the difference between the closing price of the expiring contract and the opening price of the new contract, depending on your net exposure of the rolled instrument. GO Markets will generally roll futures contracts within 72 business hours of the current contract expiry date in order to avoid low liquidity and larger spreads as the current futures contract approaches expiry.

Trading Forex and Derivatives carries a high level of risk, including the risk of losing substantially more than your initial expenditure. Also, you do not own or have any rights to the underlying assets. The effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. You should only trade Forex if you can afford to carry these risks.

GO Markets Pty Ltd does not guarantee the performance or return of capital. You should only trade in risk capital (that is, capital you can afford to lose). Please note that the historical financial performance of any underlying instrument/market is no guarantee or indicator of future performance.

Trading Derivatives may not be suitable for all investors, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved, and seek independent advice if necessary.
