Key Risks

The key risks associated with Futures include the following. It is important to note that the list of risks is not exhaustive.
Transactions in Futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract so that the transaction is highly ‘leveraged’ or ‘geared’. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit; this may work against you. The amount you lose may be greater than your initial investment.
If the market moves against you, the losses will be debited from your account. This is done on an ongoing basis. If your funds in the account fall below the maintenance margin, a margin call will be initiated which requires a top-up or reduction of open positions. Failing which, we may force-liquidate your positions.
