    Key Risks

    The key risks associated with Futures include the following. It is important to note that the list of risks is not exhaustive.
    Transactions in Futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract so that the transaction is highly ‘leveraged’ or ‘geared’. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit; this may work against you. The amount you lose may be greater than your initial investment.
