By trading Indices, you can potentially profit whether a market moves up or down.
If you believe an asset’s price is going to rise, you open a buy position (known as ‘going long’). If you think the asset’s price is going to fall, you open a sell position (known as ‘going short’). The performance of the market governs not just whether you make a profit or loss, but also how much.
So let’s say you think a particular market will rise, and you buy a Indices to trade it. Your profit will be greater the further the market rises, and your losses greater the further it declines. The same rule applies if you back a market to fall: you’ll make more the further the market drops, and lose more the further the market rises.
