INDEX STOCK ASIA TIME CONTRACT

Stock index futures are futures contracts on a stock or financial index. PT. Prima Tangguharta Futures offers futures contracts in major Asian indices such as Kospi, Hang Seng and Nikkei 225; and US indices such as NASDAQ, Dow Jones and S&P 500. Stock indices consist of shares of several selected companies and therefore cannot be traded directly (there is no ownership of share index certificates). One way investors can trade stock indexes directly is through futures contracts.

Main Advantages of Stock Index Futures Trading :

  • Stock Index Futures give investors the opportunity to invest in the stock market without buying shares directly
  • Stock Index Futures give investors the opportunity to invest in the stock market without buying shares directly

  • Potential two-way benefits. When trading stock index futures, profit potential exists in both price increases and decreases because there is no limit to directional trading.
  • The stock index futures market is more efficient and fair than direct stock trading because it is difficult to trade on inside information on the futures market.
