Buy/Sell Indexes
In this section, we will demonstrate how to buy and sell index tokens as an investor.
First of all, you need to click on the Swap button.
A dialog box will show up. The dialog box will present you the option to input how many tokens you desire to swap. To buy index tokens, you can have WETH in the from field.

Swap is the preferred method since it incurs much less gas fees and is more convenient. But if you already hold all the underlying tokens, you can also issue index tokens using your underlying tokens.
