DE30 – Trade FDAX Index

Forex trading is a difficult and thorny path to success. Unfortunately, many traders are lost in the possibilities of this market and forget about the main rules of trading. Fortunately, there are other profitable trading tools. For example, the stock market indices like DE30.

  • Spread from: 5;
  • Tick size: 0.10;
  • Swap (pips) Long: -6.00%;
  • Swap (pips) Short: -3.00%.

What is DE30?

DE30 has a lot of names – DAX (Deutscher Aktienindex), GER30, FDAX (Frankfurt DAX), German Stock Index. You can even meet the "DAX index", which is essentially a tautology. But the meaning of all these names is the same – DAX index shows the performance of Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the main powerhouse of German economy.

As the name implies, DAX consists of 30 companies with the largest capitalization on the stock exchange. It is led by electronics giants SAP and Siemens, chemical and pharmacological concerns Bayer and BASF, and Allianz insurance company closes the top five.

It’s interesting: Unlike other indices that review positions once a quarter, DE30 updates the list of participating companies every second. Therefore, you can get on the list and drop out of it at any time.

Recently, the German Stock Index has fluctuated between 10,000 and 12,000 base points. The maximum value was reached in November 2017, when the index was 13,487.

What affects the DE30?

DAX is very much tied to the Eurozone economy and reacts quite sharply to its changes. Moreover, it depends not only on news and events in Germany – many companies from this index work throughout Europe.

In general, if you are trading DE30, you should follow only a few key indicators:
  • Key interest rate of the Bank of Europe;
  • Retail sales in the Eurozone;
  • Eurozone GDP.

All other events that may affect the DE30 are so global that you will hear about them anyway.
