Every stock exchange publishes an index that measures the average value of its major stocks, an indication of how well that exchange – and correspondingly the national economy – is doing. Different indexes are calculated differently using different forms of averaging, using different share-selecting techniques, and so forth. However, one thing remains constant: an index is a mere mathematical construct, not an asset in itself. And so, to trade on its value, you need to invest in a derivative that tracks its value – a derivative such as a CFD, an ETF or an ETF CFD. Learn More
