Futures contracts represent large positions in the underlying assets, are highly leveraged, and can be substantially more volatile than other asset classes. This may expose the trader to large gains or losses even from relatively small market price movements. Futures speculative trading is considered high risk and is not suitable for all investors.

What Are The Benefits Of Futures Trading?

Futures Offer More Investment Diversification

Futures provide access to asset classes that can be added to a traditional investment portfolio to improve diversification and provide direct exposure to unconventional investment markets. Speculation in futures offers opportunities beyond the stock and bond markets while hedging strategies can be easily implemented to manage your risk and return profit in times of uncertainty.  Investors can hedge or trade in commodities, energy, metals, grains, indices, interest rates, currencies and more including but not limited to:

Futures Markets are Liquid

Future markets are very liquid, especially in the most commonly traded futures contracts, and the futures markets are typically open longer, up to five days a week, 23 hours a day.

Futures Can be Used for Hedging

Futures can be an effective hedging tool, which you can use to hedge against things such as currency risk, investment risk, commodities risk.  Futures hedging can drive risk out of your investment and/or business.

Cash market participants use futures to manage price risk. Commodity producers can lock in sale prices on their commodities or replace cash sales with futures and options to maintain market exposure without storage risk. End users can take advantage of attractive prices long before physical inventory is required. Importers and exporters use currency futures to manage foreign exchange risk.

Futures hedging can drive risk out of your investment and/or business.

Flexible Tax Treatment

Canadian future investors in general are permitted to choose (one time) whether futures trading profit and losses are treated as income or capital gains for tax reporting.  

Futures Markets are an Efficient Place for Short Selling

Short selling futures is as easy as buying them allowing hedgers to take negative or positive price exposure to their underlying asset or speculators to take a bearish point of view on a commodity or an index such as the S&P500 or Nasdaq. Futures sellers are not subject to borrowing rules, buy-ins, dividend payments or uptick rules.
