Spread betting on indices

When you spread bet on a stock index you’re backing the average share price of the companies it represents to either rise or fall

For example, the FTSE 100 represents the largest 100 companies traded on the London Stock Exchange. So, if the average share price of these companies goes up, the FTSE 100 will rise with them. If these companies fall, it will drop.

Most indices are calculated using a capitalisation-weighted average, meaning that the size of each company is taken into account. The more a particular company is worth, the more its share price will move the index as a whole. However, the Dow Jones and Nikkei are price-weighted indices, where shares with higher prices have more influence. This means a stock trading at $100 is given ten times more weight than one at $10.

With IG you can spread bet on over 30 international indices with tight spreads and low margins. We also offer seamless dealing across desktop, mobile, tablet and our Apple Watch app, so you can stay on top of the markets, wherever you are.

Charts analysis | IG Indices

Spread bet on Sunday from 8am until 10.40pm (London time) and offset traditional weekday positions to reduce your risk and margin, if important news breaks.

Existing weekday positions will not be affected by our Sunday offering.1

1Any position still open at 10.40pm will automatically roll into our existing weekday contracts for no charge.

Your weekday positions will NOT be affected by our offering of Sunday indices unless you hold an existing Sunday contract at 10.40pm, in which case this position will net off against any weekday contract held in the opposite direction.

If you have a traditional weekday position on the FTSE, Germany 30 or Wall Street when IG closes on Friday night the valuations of these positions will not change during Sunday trading. Stops and limits on these weekday positions can’t be processed during Sunday trading and we’re unable to accept orders to open positions and trailing stops. 

Please note the FTSE and Germany 30 will open for trading two minutes later than normal, at 11.02pm (London time).
