    We offer competitive futures spreads on more than 30 sectors including banks, miners, real estate, pharmaceuticals and more. Our sector markets are open to trade from 8.15am and our spreads start from just 0.4%.

    Sectors trading enables you to take a position on the performance of a basket of stocks within a particular sector, for example technology, real estate or banks, without risking your portfolio by taking a position on individual companies within that sector.

    For example, if you believe that the recovering UK economy will have a positive impact on banks, but are hesitant to speculate on individual bank stocks (which could be prone to other factors such as mergers and acquisitions), you could take a position on banking sector with City Index.

    Our price on the UK banking sector is derived from the price of Lloyds Bank shares, Barclays shares, RBS shares and more. Similarly, by taking a position on the technology sector, you would be speculating of the performance of companies within that sector, such as Apple shares and Google shares, without speculating on the performance of individual companies.
