Trading of complex financial products, such as Stocks, Futures, Foreign Exchange (‘Forex’), Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’), Indices, Options, or other financial derivatives, on ‘margin’ carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and, therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or doubts.

The UK Financial Times Stock Exchange 100, commonly known as FTSE 100 or 'Footsie,' is comprised of 100 top performing companies in the UK by market capitalization. It represents 81% of the entire market capitalization of the London Stock Exchange. It is considered as one of the most widely used indexes of share prices to trade a basket of UK stocks. Started on January 3, 1984, the UK 100 index is calculated by the British provider of stock market indices, the FTSE Group.
Although the FTSE 100 index is considered to be an indicator of the health of the UK economy, it has many international companies on the list such as Burberry or Glencore which produce the majority of their profits outside of the UK. As a result of this, the FTSE 250, which has a smaller proportion of multinationals in its listing has recently been considered as the best indicator of the UK economy.
