STEP
1
UNDERSTAND THE BASICS
LEVERAGE AND RISK AND PLAN
FUTURES on Bursa Malaysia allow you to TRADE commodities, equity indices or precious metals with a relatively small deposit, with big leverage and have potentially big gains and/or losses.

Trading futures can help you make money as an investor whether the market goes up or down. We can’t predict the future, so having a Plan when Trading Futures helps to protect your goals even if prices move in the wrong direction.
HOW?
With leverage and risk.
lev-er-age
Control over large cash amounts of Futures contracts with comparatively small levels of capital.
risk
With price changes highly leveraged, there is risk in even a small change in a Futures price which can lead to a big gain or conversely a big loss.
plan
With the right trading plan, you can use leverage to your advantage and help mitigate risk.

CHOOSE A FUTURES PRODUCT
The product:
With the FKLI Futures 1-month contract, you can gain whether the Bursa Malaysia benchmark index goes up or down.
The Trade:
Place an FKLI Long if you expect the market to go up or an FKLI Short if you expect the market to go down. It’s that simple.
The product:
Gold is the most precious of metals and the safe haven when global markets look challenging.
The Trade:
If you think the world economy is in trouble, then you would likely go Long with an FGLD contract. This is because you think gold will be in high demand and thus the price will increase.
The product:
FCPO 3-month contract, as the world’s global benchmark for edible oils, is a highly traded Futures contract that rises and falls based on supply and demand.
The Trade:
If you believe the weather will be exceptional this year for palm oil plantations, there will likely be an abundant supply of palm oil in the market. This will make the price of palm oil go down, so you would likely place a short on the trade.
