C. FAQ

  • What is Index futures?

In finance, a futures contract (more colloquially, futures) is a standardized contract between two parties to buy or sell a specified asset of standardized quantity and quality for a price agreed upon today (the futures price) with delivery and payment occurring at a specified future date, the delivery date, making it a type of derivative instrument. The contracts are negotiated at a futures exchange, which acts as an intermediary between the two parties. The party agreeing to buy the underlying asset in the future, the “buyer” of the contract, is said to be “long”, and the party agreeing to sell the asset in the future, the “seller” of the contract, is said to be “short”.

  • Is it necessary to make a foreign currency deposit before buying and selling foreign futures?

It is not necessary.  Customers can choose to deposit foreign currency, RMB or HKD, and then exchange the currency on the App to convert it into the relative futures deposit.

  • Can Mini S&P 500 futures and S&P 500 futures be margin offset or position offset?

Cannot, suppose Investor A holds a long position of 5 nos. mini S&P 500 futures contracts and a short position of 1 no. S&P 500 futures contract, he still needs to maintain sufficient margin, that is, 5 nos. mini S&P 500 futures margin and 1 no. S&P 500 futures deposit, which cannot be offset. When closing the positions, they must also be closed separately, and the positions cannot be offset.

  • I hold an open Hang Seng Index futures contract with a floating profit of HK$10,000, and also hold an open Nikkei 225 futures contract with a floating loss of HK$10,000, do I still need to fulfil the deposit?

It still need to maintain the individual margin requriment. The floating profit/loss of Hong Kong futures contracts and foreign futures contracts cannot be used to offset each other. However, the floating profit and loss of different futures contracts in foreign futures accounts can be offset against each other.
