Just head to any broking firms(OSK,CIMB,HWANG,APEX etc etc)that offers futures trading.

Opening an futures account is pretty standard stuff, they just need a copy of your IC.

Futures account requires a minimum deposit for trading, ie a margin. So lets say you're interested in trading the KLCI futures contract, the current margin for 1 contract is rm2500; they will probably ask for a minimum deposit of at least rm3500 for a new account. So please prepare sufficient funds if you plan to open a futures trading account.

My advice is 'don't get involved'. Not easy to trade in futures. When you 'think' it's going down, it will go up and vise versa.

Avoid if you can.

It's not easy because you "think". You trade the markets, you don't "think" about the markets.

Though my advice to the original poster is to get yourself educated in some simple technical analysis knowledge. Its much more reliable than say, your gut or the cash index hahaha.

I've been trading futures for the past 5 years. I'll admit its not sunny every day, but for the amount of risk I put in, I'm pretty satisfied with the reward. :)

Good for you, BUT how many are experts like you? Maybe you could guide us to be better future traders and even tell us here whether to buy or sell or abstain.

I am sure we will appreciate it very much.

One thing I learn when I first started trading is never call yourself an expert. I learn from the markets, from my mistakes, and I'm still learning.

Everyone can tell you where to enter your trades, but at the end of the day, you can only really learn if you yourself are the one who draws the chart and makes the last decision.

PS: If FKLI can break and hold 1485 convincingly, I'll expect it to reach 1510-1512. As for cash index, I don't really care where it would go. I would pay more attention to selective stocks/sectors rather than the overall index(30 component stocks isn't exactly very reflective)

can u recommend some reading stuffs or books regarding how to trade futures?hahaha!thx.
reply
If you want books just solely on futures, I say you'll save more $$$ by google it haha. There's plenty of free info on how futures contract works.

As for how to trade by using TA, just start with the books that introduce the basics. Candlesticks, MACD, Stochastics, Moving Averages and move your way up. Try to attend previews/seminars for T.A., that way you can at least get a feel how TA works in trading.
