INDEX FUTURES

For clients who have foreign exchange dealings, we are able to offer significant savings and a bespoke service. 

CURRENCY SERVICES

An Equity Index is a calculated average of selected share prices, representing a particular market or sector. 

Similar to Single Stock Futures (SSF), an Index Future contract gives investors the ability to buy or sell an underlying listed financial instrument (in this case an Index) at a fixed price on a future date

BENEFITS OF TRADING EQUITY INDEX FUTURES


RISKS OF TRADING EQUITY INDEX FUTURES

It’s important to highlight that the risk of loss from trading in index futures can be substantial.


Gearing refers to the ratio between the portfolio value (initial margin and free cash) at any point in time relative to the exposure of the underlying equity index.

As a result of gearing, the profit and losses on a position can be more than the initial margin posted. If a margin call cannot be met (client is short of funds), the broker may close the position.


With this being said, it is important that investors understand that gearing works in both directions. At Intrepid Capital we protect our clients through a highly effective risk management tool on the DMA (Direct Market Access) platform that clients use to get access to the market.
