Futures trading has high opportunities and risks. If you want to invest in Futures Trading, you must first understand Futures Trading activities and the contents of the Transaction Agreement and Rules.
Futures Contracts, Sharia Derivative Contracts, and/or other Derivative Contracts (Foreign Exchange, Contracts for Difference) with DC Futures are leveraged margin trading products. Therefore they are high risk compared to other investments and thus you can quickly lose more than your initial investment. It has legal force under the supervision of BAPPEBTI.
You should not trade on margin unless you fully understand all the risks involved and that you have sufficient resources. There is, however, the possibility of an adverse movement in price that will result in you meeting the required financial obligations in relation to margin payments and losses.
Margin trading is leveraged trading that allows 'gearing' which means that you can place a large trade by placing only a small amount of money as margin. If the price moves profitably it will quickly increase your profit. But even a small movement in price against your position can result in a sizeable loss and you may be required to deposit additional margin immediately to keep the trade open. You are responsible for this and for any losses that may occur if your position is closed. The potential loss, or gain, for a margin trading product can be limitless and this should always be taken into account by you when making trading decisions.
