Indices

Indices are baskets of stocks which represent the performance and measure the value of the particular stock market sector to which they belong. Each index is determined by the weighted average of the price of the stocks that comprise it and can be used to indicate the performance of a particular sector or even the health of the economy of a country.

* The average spreads indicated here are calculated throughout the day. They tend to be narrower under normal market conditions. However, spreads may widen as a result of important news announcements, during political uncertainty, because of unexpected events that can lead to volatile market conditions, or at the close of the business day, or at the weekends when liquidity is lower. When you trade at our company, GFMarkets is your counter-party. Your trades are matched and any next exposure above the predefined thresholds is hedged with our liquidity providers at the current market spread. However, during volatile and illiquid market conditions our liquidity providers quote spreads larger than normal. At such times, GFMarkets is forced to pass on some of the spread increases to its clients.

** If you leave an open position for the next trading day, you pay or you obtain the certain amount, calculated on the basis of interest rates difference of two currencies in currency pair. This operation is called “swap.” In the trading terminal, “swap” is automatically converted into the deposit currency. The operation is conducted at 00.00 (GMT+2 time zone) and can take several minutes. On Wednesday swap is charged for three days.
