Video: How to Think About Stock Market IndicesHere’s a useful video on the S&P500, DAX and FTSE 100. It covers how to spread bet on the markets as they currently stand, 28 March 2017.
However, if you find this in 2018 then I think the video will still be a useful guide for how you can approach technical analysis when looking at the stock markets.
And rather than over complicate things, IG analyst, Chris Beauchamp, does a good job in keeping the subject as simple as possible.
Remember: Spread betting, CFDs and forex trading carry a high level of risk. You can lose more than your initial investment. These products are not suitable for all investors. Only speculate with money that you can afford to lose. Make sure you fully understand the risks involved and seek independent financial advice where necessary.
