Learn more about OTC Index Futures

OTC Index futures trading offers the opportunity for you as an ICM Capital client to invest in a large division of a national market or an entire market itself and trade the broad movement of a country's share market index. Index trading is not based on one share but on the broader market move therefore traders often enjoy this more than trading individual stocks. With the indices we have at ICM Capital you can trade stocks of over 600 different companies spread around the world.

Indices will move up or down depending on investors' reactions to news updates concerning company financial reporting or economic announcements. Political decisions can also play a big role in stock indices moving higher or lower.

We quote prices on the most popular index futures 24 hours a day; see below for OTC Index futures ICM Capital offers.

Swap Policy

No swaps will be offered on any positions under ICM Standard accounts. ICM Capital reserves the right to discontinue an Islamic/SWAP-free account without warning. ICM Capital will invoke this right in case of suspicion of abuse, in which case ICM Capital may, at its sole discretion, decide to close all open positions in the account and deduct or add swaps for all transactions currently and/or previously made in the account and decline from accepting any further requests from the Client to be exempted from SWAP.

While using higher leverage can significantly increase your profits, it equally can work against you as it involves greater risks to your capital. If the currency underlying one of your trades moves in leverage will greatly amplify your potential losses. It is possible for you to lose more than your initial deposit so please ensure CFD trading meets your investment objectives and seek independence advice and trading style that includes the use of stop and limit orders.
