Why Trade Indices with FXCM?
NO MINIMUM STOP DISTANCE
FXCM's Enhanced CFD Execution means you trade without minimum stop distances on most products, including US30, NAS100 and the GER30. All strategies welcome.
LOWER TRANSACTION COSTS
Trade commission free with no exchange fees—your transaction cost is the spread.
TRADE ON MARGIN
Set aside a fraction of the total trade size for global indices—up to 200:1 leverage.2
TRADE SIZES – MICRO CFDs
Micro-contract sizes give you the flexibility to risk less per trade.
With FXCM's index products, you can also trade in bear markets more easily than in the stock market. Think a market will fall? Sell it just as easily as you can buy rising markets.
Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: charging fixed lot-based commissions at the open and close of a trade, adding a markup to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers for certain account types, and adding a markup to rollover. Under the Dealing Desk execution model, FXCM may act as a dealer and may receive additional compensation from trading.
Leverage: Leverage is a double-edged sword and can dramatically amplify your profits. It can also just as dramatically amplify your losses. Trading foreign exchange with any level of leverage may not be suitable for all investors.
Risk Warning: Our service includes products that are traded on margin and carry a risk of losses in excess of your deposited funds. The products may not be suitable for all investors. Please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
