Continuous CFDs on Stock Indices and Commodities
We offer trading stock index and commodity continuous CFDs (with no expiration dates), calculated with unique algorithms and based on the nearby liquid futures contracts. As the expiration date of the current basic futures falls due, the price of our continuous CFD doesn’t make any sharp fluctuations or gaps. The algorithm implements two schemes for calculating new instruments: the first one is for stock indices; the second one is for commodities.
Continuous Stock Index CFD is formed on the basis of two instruments - the stock index and the nearest futures contract on this stock index. Let us examine the formation of a Continuous CFD on S&P 500 example.
A continuous commodity CFD (to be more specific, a continuous CFD on commodity futures) is based on two instruments: the nearby futures and the next commodity futures contract. Let us examine the scheme of constructing a continuous CFD using the example of BRENT crude futures.
