Leverage

Only a fraction of asset value in terms of margin is required to establish a position e.g., SGX SiMSCI Futures require an initial margin that is about 5% of the contract value. In other words, it offers about 20 times leverage.

Risks

Highly risky and complex instruments

Losses are not limited to what you have deposited for margin. You can lose more than your initial deposit.


Leverage

High degree of leverage can work for you as well as against you.

While a small change in the underlying asset’s price can translate into 20 times magnification in profits, it could also translate into 20 times magnification in losses if your view turned out to be wrong.


Deposit funds to maintain position

If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to deposit substantial additional funds on short notice in order to maintain your position.

If you fail to comply within the specified time, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account.


Liquidation during extreme market movements

During extreme market movements, your positions may be liquidated if the equity balance falls below 30% of the initial margin requirements of all your positions.

During adverse market conditions, your best efforts in limiting your losses with the use of “stop loss orders” may not be effective because market conditions may make it difficult or impossible to execute such protective orders.
