You can now trade spot indices with SMFX, allowing a trader to trade the current value instead of the future value. This means you no longer need to worry about contracts expiring and deciding whether to roll your position to the next contract.
Investors generally trade indices to either speculate on a particular economy or to protect against the shares in their portfolio losing their value. For example, a trader thinking the UK stock market will rise would buy the FTSE 100 instead of buying all the underlying shares in the FTSE and vice versa should he or she think the market would depreciate.
