Benefits of Trading with KBOFX

Leveraged gain and loss: When trading futures, the percentage return on your initial investment may be far higher than the movement in the underlying index, whether it is rising or falling. In contrast to options, where a buyer's losses may be limited to the premium paid, losses on a futures contract could be limitless for both the buyer and the seller.

Hedging: By establishing a contrary position in a comparable asset, investors can use the risk management technique of hedging to offset losses on their investments. Potential gains are often reduced as a result of the risk reduction offered by hedging. Hedging is paying a premium in exchange for the security it offers.

Margin calls: A margin call happens when the value of the securities in a brokerage account drops below the maintenance margin, necessitating the deposit of extra funds or securities by the account holder to satisfy the margin obligations.

Complexity: Trading methods for options and futures can be sophisticated. Prior to trading, make sure you are completely informed of the risks and, if necessary, seek advice from a competent professional.
