Commenting on the launch of our new cash indices, Thomas Tsaloupis, Head of Risk Management at easyMarkets, said:
We’re delighted to now offer our clients an even wider selection of indices to trade from. These new cash indices are designed for traders with a short-term outlook as they have tighter spreads than index futures, meaning they can get in and out of positions quickly without incurring too much cost. Our goal at easyMarkets is to continually innovate and provide our traders with the best services, products and platforms, and the introduction of cash indices is a further example of this.
What are the differences between cash indices and index futures?
There are some notable differences between the two types of indices we offer. The below table below outlines these differences:
|Cash Indices||Index Futures|
|Better for traders with a shorter-term market outlook||Better for traders with a longer-term market outlook|
