The advantage of trading indices is that they have multiple components. We offer indices like the DAX that has 30 constituents, which measures the top performing German stocks, or much broader indices like the S&P 500. Multiple components not only diversify risk to an extent, but they offer the opportunity for greater volatility due to the fact that there are simply more moving parts.
