Tips For Successful Stock
Market Index Trading

Stock Market Index Trading can be one of the most profitable...or most costly exercises you will ever undertake. While trading a basket of Stocks has it's advantages, such as removing the risk of any single company you own Stock in going bust and taking all of your money with it, Stock indexes can tend to be highly volatile, especially the smaller ones.

Using technical analysis and a proven trading strategy for timing the entries and exits when you are Stock Market Index trading can vastly improve your results and profits...if you know how to analyze Stock trends and patterns.

The S&P 500 Stock Index is probably one of the worlds best know indexes, and it has a long history of strong trends that have made and lost traders fortunes over the years.

By trading a managed fund that tracks the Index (such as the Vanguard Funds), options over the Index, or Futures Contracts over the Index (such as the S&P Emini Futures contract), we can participate in the movements of the market, either with or without leverage.

Trading The Vanguard 500 Stock Index Fund...

The easiest way to trade a Stock Market Index is to simply buy a managed fund like the Vanguard 500 Index fund. 

This works fine when the trend is up, but what about when the trend is heading in the other direction?

There are several funds that trade inversely to their underlying indexes. One of these can be used to trade the downside when prices are falling, but the problem with many of these funds is you have no leverage. 

Stock Market Index Trading Using Derivatives...

This is why many traders move on to Stock Index Trading through derivatives (such as options and futures contracts) as an alternative to simply buying a Vanguard Fund or other managed funds.

The most important thing you'll need to remember if you want to get the leverage of Options or something like the Emini futures market is that you will have to learn to trade profitably. 

Because leverage magnifies both your profits and your losses, it's critical that you have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of good trading if you are going to make Stock Index trading part of your investment plans. 

An understanding of technical analysis and knowing where to enter and exit trades (and where to place stop losses) will help you to maximize your profits and minimize your losses
