CMS Prime offers Indices CFDs trading with tight spreads across a diverse number of indices across US, Europe and Asia. Indices CFDs can be offered either as a Cash (Spot) or Future contract and on some instruments, you will have both options. Spot contracts have no expiry and our Future contracts have an auto-roll functionality. This means that you do not have to reopen your trade on the next Future contract and will enjoy continuous charting for your technical analysis.

What is a CFD?

A CFD (Contract for Difference) allows traders and investors the ability to speculate on the direction without having to own the underlying asset. The investor will have the opportunity to profit from price movements in both directions, by going either long or short. CFDs are typically traded using leverage which gives you a greater exposure to the market.
