Trading Indices


Trading Indices with Valutrades is a great alternative to stock trading and we are happy to announce that you can now trade with a minimum of 0.01 lots giving you much more flexibility in your positions.


Instead of trading individual stocks, you may trade a group of equities at one time within an Index which is based on the stock prices or on the market capitalisation of each company.

Valutrades offers you a variety of Stock Indices including:

the US majors;  the UK FTSE 100; the European Majors; the Asian Majors and the Australia 200.

Each index has its own personality and is affected by a variety of factors including economic news, currency pressures, trade wars and economic sentiment.

Of course, like any instrument, technical analysis can play a big part in your trading decisions.

If you are new to MT4 and MT5 you may check the specification of each symbol, including any Global Stock Index by right-clicking on it in “Market Watch” and selecting “Specification”.

Here we can see that the “Minimum” Position Size, which used to be 1 full Lot,  is now 0.01 lots.

That’s all for now.  We will be back with more soon.  Happy trading with Valutrades.
