Indices & Share Trading
Why Trade Shares and Indices
Adding shares and indices to your portfolio is a great way of diversifying your investments by having a portion of them linked to the performance of a particular company or benchmark index. FxPro offers CFD trading on over 150 shares and 10 major indices with no commissions and reduced margin requirements.
Investing in shares allows you to back a company that you feel is currently undervalued, or to short one that you believe is overvalued. This allows you to directly apply your knowledge of a particular sector or industry to your trading while broadening your potential investments.
Indices are particularly useful for diversification purposes, as well as being an attractive passive investment for many risk-averse traders. Each index is a benchmark value of either the performance of an entire asset class or the performance of a segment of an asset class. The France 120 Spot Index, for example, measures the 120 most actively traded shares that are listed in Paris, while the U.S. Dollar Index measures the value of the U.S. dollar in relation to a number of other foreign currencies.
At FxPro we do not charge commission fees for trading shares and indices. A small mark-up is applied to the spreads we receive from our liquidity providers and we keep our prices extremely competitive.
As our shares also reflect corporate actions, traders are entitled to dividend payments when going long and incur dividend charges when going short.
