Advantages and benefits of trading KLCI futures
If you own shares, or trade actively in shares, the CI futures contract (FKLI) provides multi faceted alternative trading and hedging strategies
1 Can short to hedge existing portfolio
2 Ability to short to take advantage of down movement. Note there is no short selling allowed for Malaysian equities
3 Likewise if your view is for a bull market, buying one futures contract is the same as buying a portfolio of the top 100 shares of the Composite Index, equivalent to Index value X RM50 value. For example if the index value is 850, then the value will be RM42,500. And the RM42,500 does not have to be paid up in full. A performance bond, known as margin of RM2,500-4,000 will have to be paid to the clearing house. This illustrates the advantage of leverage that futures affords.
