Traders at Trademote are able to trade on indices in the form of futures. Indices measure the value of a specific section of a stock exchange and are calculated based on the average pricing of certain stocks that belong to those indices, showing the general direction of a specific market (NASDAQ for technology) or the general economy of a country (ex. DAX). Index Futures are future contracts on financial indices, said to be mainly used for either speculation and position hedging. With more transparent pricing, futures are more accessible to a wide spectrum of traders. Futures trading is the current trend in the Financial Industry, with professionals characterising them as a mature product.
