An Example of Indices CFD Trading

Suppose you want to trade CFDs, where the underlying asset is the US30, known as ‘’Dow Jones Industrial Average Index ” Let us suppose that the US30 is trading at:

You decide to buy 5 contracts of US30 because you think that the US30 price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 1%. This means that you need to deposit 1% of the total position value into your margin account.

In the next hour, if the price moves to 22100.00/22112.00, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current (bid) price of US30 which is 22100.00.

In this case, the price moved in your favor. But, had the price declined instead, moving against your prediction, you could have made a loss. This continuous evaluation of price movements and resultant profit/loss happens daily. Accordingly, it leads to a net return (positive/negative) on your initial margin. In the loss scenario where your Free equity, (account balance + Profit/Loss) falls below the margin requirements (1105), the broker will issue a margin call. If you fail to deposit the money, and the market moves further against you, when your free equity reach the 50% of your initial margin the contract will be closed at the current market price, known as "stop out".

Notice how a small difference in price can offer opportunities to trade? This small difference is known as "pip" or "percentage in point". For Indices trading, 1 pip is equal to a price increment of 1.0 which is also called an Index point.
