The Financial Market is becoming more globalized and diversified. Traditional Stock Market can no longer fulfill a large proportion of investors needs. Thus, derivative products over various exchanges are growing vigorously these years. As many investors in Hong Kong are not familiar with the mechanism and risk of trading derivative products, they refuse to undergo trading derivative products. In fact, trading Foreign Futures Products is not that complicated. If you manage your risk control, trading Foreign Futures Products is even more flexible than investing in stock.

To provide better investment opportunities, Foreign Futures Department of Phillip Commodities (HK) Ltd. offers clients with 24-hour trading services and an advanced online trading platform.
