Why trade DLCs?

  • Leverage – Simple trading instrument to get leveraged returns of up to 7x on popular Singapore and Hong Kong stocks and indices
  • No account opening process required; trade it like a stock – simply go to your stock broker account to trade DLCs (subject to SIP qualification)
  • Long DLC and Short DLC – two types of DLCs, allowing you the flexibility to trade both rising and falling markets
  • Lower barrier of entry – one lot of DLC is 100 shares, and the unit price is usually much lower than the underlying share, allowing lower barrier of entry and more flexible allocation of your investment capital
