FTSE 100: your guide to the top companies

If you want to trade on the stock market, the FTSE 100 provides a useful index of the top 100 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. This is calculated by…[Read More Below]

[continued] looking at which companies have the greatest market capitalisation. The FTSE 100 is by far the most popular and widely used representation of the UK stock market. The index is published every 15 seconds, meaning it is constantly up to date with the state of the market. Trading hours run from 08:00 until 16:30, with closing values taken at 16:35.

The FTSE 100 has been used since the start of 1984 and incorporates around 81 per cent of the market capitalisation of the entire London Stock Exchange market. Every quarter of a year the companies listed on the FTSE 100 are reviewed and updated to reflect the latest market capitalisation statistics. The FTSE Group, originally a joint venture between the London Stock Exchange and the Financial Times, is the independent company that maintains the FTSE 100. There is also a FTSE 250 (the next 250 largest companies after the FTSE 100) and the FTSE 350 (the top 350 companies combined)

If you want to get started with your trading on the FTSE 100 or want to use a new platform to trade from, we at Accendo Markets offer different options to suit your requirements. One way you can benefit from the FTSE 100 is via spread betting. Our spread betting accounts allow you to trade on whether a stock will rise or fall in value on the FTSE 100. You chose what amount of money you wish to trade on a per point basis. For example, if you traded on a £20 per point basis that the stock will rise in value, each point the market moves in your favour you would gain £20. However, if the value fell, you would lose £20 per point the market moved against you. To help you perfect your spread betting strategies we have a free spread betting demo and spread betting guide. On opening an account, you would also be assigned a dedicated personal trader who will provide advice and tuition in using our services to make the most from your trading experience.

Another way that you can trade on the FTSE 100 with our help is through contracts for difference trading, or CFD trading. We offer a free CFD trading platform trial to give you a chance to practice your trading or alternatively you can open one of our CFD accounts to start trading on contracts for an underlying asset. The difference between the opening and closing trade on the underlying asset is paid as a profit or a loss.

The risk of making a loss with CFD trading means that even investing a small amount of capital can yield very large rewards. You have different options for trading on the FTSE 100 but we at Accendo Markets can help you work out the best plan for your needs and act as your broker to help ensure successful trading.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
