Learn how to use leverage to take advantage of trading index CFDs


iFOREX makes it possible for clients who were once excluded from market access, to invest in major market indices, a popular mode of investment for almost a century. Powered by highly innovative technology, our trading platform allows you to choose from a wide array of tradeable financial instruments in the form of CFDs, including some of the market’s most important indices.

Trading Contracts for Difference (CFDs for short) is a way for investors to invest in the price movement of various financial instruments including indices, commodities, shares, and more, without owning the underlying asset. CFD instruments follow the price movements of tradeable products, such as futures contracts, and give investors the ability to take advantage of market trends using tools and trading strategies such as fundamental analysis, technical analysis, and many others.
