Why trade DAX

Haven’t tried trading DAX before? See what you’re missing out on. New name, more benefits:

- The DAX index is one of the most volatile trading instruments which explains its popularity. Traders can see movements such as 1,000 pips per month, or around 50 pips per day. So tracking DAX, whether it’s going up or down, is rather beneficial.

- One point in the DAX index represents €1 for one full contract. You can trade more than 1 contract and multiply your results accordingly. So many chances for profitable trading!

- The minimum lot for trading DAX is 0.1 at MTrading. It makes you flexible in choosing your trading strategy. No matter what minimum lot you choose, you’ll be able to benefit from price movements. 

- MTraders can profit from the leverage rate up to 1:500 and a typical spread of 0.8 pips. 

Remember when trading with leverage you multiply the possibilities of your profits and losses as well. However, if anything goes just not as expected, stop loss orders will prevent you from losing funds. Great news is that MTrading has no minimum stop distance so you can tailor stop loss orders to your expectations and put them as near as you like to feel safe.

If you trade DAX, note the following:

The index rebalancing procedure will be used to add new constituent companies to DAX. That means there will be no technical impact on the DAX prices and the actual index level will stay the same.
