Swissquote Launches Three New CFDs on Asian Indices

Swiss banking group and brokerage Swissquote announced the addition of three new contracts for difference, also known as CFDs, based on Asian equities indices in its trading platforms.

According to a press release published by the company, Swissquote now supports #NIK225, which represents Spot Japan 225, #China50, which accounts for Spot China 50, and #China50M, which is Forward China 50.

The report says:

Swissquote's FX platforms also allow you to trade on the movements of all the main European and American stock indices, as well as Japan's. Most of these CFDs are available both as Forward (with an expiration date) or Spot/Synthetic (no expiration date, overnight rollover/swap interest applies).

With the decision, one of the most important online trading banks in Switzerland is expanding its trading print in Asia and offering more CFDs and stock access to its customers.

Previously, Swissquote added a CFD on WTI crude oil in May. The OIL100 was designed to cover the most traded commodity in the world with a contract for difference that tracks the price variation of the US OIL benchmark.
