Indices are statistical measures of an asset class performance in the securities market. They allow traders to understand and track this performance. The main advantage of trading in indices is the access to the variety of assets comprising the index in a single deal.
Trading indices is an easy field to enter, compared to investing in stocks. Indices are less affected by the fluctuation of a single stock, as soon as they are based on the collective performance of a large number of stocks. Indices allow both long and short trading, while individual shares cannot be traded short. It expands trade opportunities of traders who can profit on the rise and fall of stocks. Indices are also liquid and volatile assets with extended trading hours, which makes them even more attractive for investors.
