Futures Trading Notice Board

         Terms of Service, Risk Disclosure Statement and Disclaimer for Futures Trading                     

                

Risk Disclosure and Disclaimer

Futures is a financial contract in which buyers and sellers promise to buy or sell a certain related asset,                such as stocks, market indices, currencies or commodities, at a predetermined price on a specified date in the                future. Investors can buy and sell various futures contracts of relevant assets on the Hong Kong Stock                Exchange. They only need to pay a part of the total contract value as a deposit to buy or sell futures                contracts. This leverage feature can magnify investors' returns and losses. When the trend of the price of                the relevant asset is contrary to the investor's opinion, the risk of being called for margin (“margin                call”) may be faced due to a drop in the margin level, and the loss may exceed the margin deposited. Futures                contracts are generally settled in cash, and our company does not provide physical delivery of relevant                assets.

The risk of loss in trading futures contracts or options can be substantial. In some cases, your losses may                exceed the initial margin deposit amount. Even if you may have set contingent instructions, such as "stop                loss" or "limit price" instructions, it still may not be able to avoid losses. Market                conditions may make it impossible to execute such instructions. You may be required to deposit additional                margin at short notice. If the required margin amount is not satisfied within the specified time, your open                positions may be liquidated. However, you remain responsible for any resulting shortfall in your account.                Therefore, you should research and understand futures contracts and options before trading, and carefully                consider whether such trading is suitable for you based on your own financial situation and investment goals.                If you trade options, you should familiarize yourself with the rules and procedures, as well as your rights                and responsibilities in relation to the exercise and expiration of option contracts.

Therefore, before you trade futures contracts or options, you must have a thorough understanding of the                contract terms and trading rules of the relevant products, and you should refer to the relevant information                published on the website of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and/or consult your professional advisors, as well                as carefully consider whether this type of transaction is suitable for you according to your own financial                situation and investment objectives.

         Last Trading Day and Settlement Day for Futures Contracts                     

For the Last trading day/expiration date and Settlement date and holiday schedule of Hong Kong futures, please              refer to the website of the Hong Kong Exchange:

               https://www.hkex.com.hk/Services/Trading/Derivatives/Overview/Trading-Calendar-and-Holiday-Schedule?sc_lang=en                         

Given the spot month Hang Seng Index Futures contracts stop trading at 4:00 p.m. on the settlement day, when              would the system's Hang Seng Index Futures "Main Link" be switched to the next contract month?

The contract month for the Hang Seng Index Futures "Main Link" takes into account of the market data              received from the Exchange, by evaluating the number of open contracts and the trading volume of the relevant              futures market before determining which contract month would be linked for the next trading session. The              calculation (Open Interest Quantity x 0.9 + Market Volume x 0.1) takes place after the market closes and              customers only need to reconnect to the APP’s market date to reflect the update.

         Margin Requirements on Futures Contracts                     

Futures Margin (Open Position) Requirements (also known as “Initial Margin”)

Before opening a new position, the client must first make the necessary initial deposit as Initial Margin, for            which the required amount may be adjusted from time to time according to the Exchange’s requirements, otherwise            opening a new position is prohibited (except for clients whom have been approved as “Established Client”). The            buying power available within the clients’ futures trading account must meet the above-mentioned requirements when            opening a new position, those clients whom are on margin call are not allowed to open new position.

Maintenance Margin Requirements

Futures Margin Requirements is divided into "Initial Margin" and "Maintenance Margin",              whereas the Maintenance Margin is 80% of the Initial Margin. The amount required for the Initial Margin will be              adjusted from time to time according to the requirements of the Exchange, at least adjusting monthly, and it              will also be adjusted upward in response to market fluctuations or prior to local long holidays. Before clients              open a new position, their futures trading account must have sufficient Initial Margin deposited, while after              opening a new position must have sufficient Maintenance Margin in place. All futures margin security deposits              must be in cash.

Margin Requirements for Unilateral and Spread Futures Contracts of the Hang Seng Index Series Futures

I. Margin for Unilateral Futures Contract
           For details, please refer to the Exchange website:

               https://www.hkex.com.hk/Services/Clearing/Listed-Derivatives/Risk-Management/Margin/Margin-Tables/HKCC?sc_lang=en                         

II. Margin for Spread Futures Contracts
             Spread Futures Contract trading is a single futures contract of the same category or the same trading product in              different contract months, trading in opposite directions simultaneously.

【NOTICE】

At present, Well Link Securities Limited’s margin policy for each pair of the Spread Futures Contracts traded by              any client will be treated as two independent (Unilateral) futures contracts in terms of margin security              deposits requirements.

【NOTICE】

At time of volatile market conditions, the margin security deposits required from the client may be raised to a              level higher than the Exchange's Initial Margin requirement, which in turn triggers a margin call. As such,              the client may be called for margin and demanded for additional fund deposits in a short period of time, in              order to maintain the Initial Margin level of their positions.              If the additional margin requirement is not satisfied within the specified time, the client may be forced to              close the position at a loss, and all losses arising therefrom, including any amount owed after closing the              position, must be borne by the customer.

         Futures Margin Call and Forced Liquidation                     

Margin Call Notifications【Total Initial Margin/Total Net Asset Value】and Force Liquidation

When the net position value or asset valuey of the client’s futures account falls below the Maintenance Margin              level, the client will be called for margin security deposits, and the request for margin will usually be              triggered according to the risk ratio of the client’s position. When the client is being called for margin, the              client should quickly replenish their margin level to the Initial Margin level, or implement adequate risk              management in a timely manner by closing their open position(s). Unless the margin call requirement is              satisfied, the client will not be allowed for fund withdrawal from their account or opening new positions.

I. When the【Initial Margin】ratio in the client's futures account falls to 80% or below, a margin call              notification will be issued, and the client should make the necessary margin deposit as soon as possible or              voluntarily close the position until the net asset value returns to the【Initial Margin】requirement level above.

II. When the【Initial Margin】ratio in the client’s futures account falls to 60% or below, further margin call              notification will be issued, and the client should immediately make the necessary margin deposit or voluntarily              close the position until the net asset value returns to the【Initial Margin】requirement level above.

III. When the【Initial Margin】ratio in the client's futures account falls to 50% or below, forced liquidation              may be executed at any time without prior notice or warning until the net position value or asset value of the              client’s futures account returns to the【Initial Margin】requirement level.


                

If the client fails to make the margin call amount within the specified time limit, Well Link Securities Limited              has the right to exercise risk management protocol by forcefully closing the position for the client (“force              liquidation”) after the specified time limit, without further notice.

I. If the client’s futures trading account is called for margin securities deposits during the Day Trading              session (T), the client must ensure the latest margin call amount in full is available within their futures              trading account by 04:00 p.m. on that day.
             II. If the client’s futures trading account is called for margin securities deposits during the After-Hour              Trading session (T+1), the client must ensure the latest margin call amount in full is available within their              futures trading account by 09:00 a.m. in the morning of the next trading day.。

         Futures Position Closeout and Settlement Mechanism
