The new VIX futures CFD is designed to provide clients with valuable opportunities to gain exposure to the expected volatility of the S&P 500 Index or incorporate as part of a broader portfolio hedging strategy. The new CFD product will be made available for trading via API from 26 Degrees Global Markets trading servers as part of a broader Index offering encompassing both data and execution.
