Indices naming confusion

Recommended Posts

Hi Forum, noob here.

I use another large trading platform to monitor indices in a short list, but would like to use IG instead.

I am confused by the naming conventions from one platform to the other. The indices I follow are:

DJI (Dow Jones Industrial Average)

SPX (S&P500)

IXIC (Nasdaq ?)

XAO (All ords (ASX))

May I ask what the equiv markets are in IG and can they all be viewed in a list?

Many thanks,

DJI = Wall Street

S&P500 = US500

Nasdaq = US Tech 100

ASX = Australia 200


They are ETFs tracking those indexes. They look at the index during market hours and at the futures outside market hours. They run 24/7 from Sunday night to Friday night. GMT timezone

    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
    • Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.
