Risks of Futures Trading

Futures trading has inherent risks that are not present in equity investment.
Please fully understand the risks involved when trading and do so at your own risk and discretion.

Principal and profit are not guaranteed

Prices of futures transactions fluctuate due to changes in prices of the underlying asset and other factors. Principal and profit are not guaranteed.

Losses can be significant

Depending on market conditions, the margin initially deposited may not be sufficient and trading may not be able to continue unless additional margin is deposited in cash. Even if margin is added, further losses may be incurred and the margin may not be returned, or the losses may become even greater.

You might not be able to trade at the price you expected

Futures prices are determined by supply and demand factors. There is a possibility that there will be fewer orders on the other side, and you will not be able to trade at the price you expected.

You may have to deposit additional margin

If any irregularities in trading are found, measures such as margin increases and restrictions on substitute securities may be implemented. In such cases, it may be necessary to submit additional margin or replace substitute securities with cash.

Information distribution and trading may be delayed, interrupted, or suspended due to a system failure

In the event of a system failure in OSE or market participant, or a failure of the communication lines connecting OSE, market participants and traders, order placement or distribution of information may be delayed, or trading may be interrupted or suspended.

Understand how the product works and conduct transactions

Please fully understand the nature of the product, trading mechanism and other basic matters before starting futures transactions, and do so at your own risk and discretion.
