Daily Leverage Certificates – A Whole New World (Guest Post)

Daily Leverage Certificates – A Whole New World (Guest Post)

First introduced in July 2017, I felt that DLC hasn’t been well understood by the market for its use and purpose other than being perceived as yet another leveraged product to stay away from. Leveraged products need not be risky when controlled properly and used appropriately. It’s actually an opportunity for retail investors to act and benefit like a hedge fund.

Let’s look at 3 Hong Kong stocks that have caught the public’s eye:

According to Reuters, on  27th June Shares in Hong Kong rose on Thursday, extending the previous day’s cautious gains, as investors’ hopes of a trade truce between the United States and China rose ahead of a highly anticipated meeting between the countries’ leaders. At the close of trade, the Hang Seng index was up 399.44 points or 1.42% at 28,621.42, adding to the previous day’s 0.1% gain.

The top gainer on the Hang Seng was Sunny Optical (2382 HK)-mainland China’s largest manufacturer of smartphone camera modules and lenses which gained 4.03%. Sunny Optical is also up by at least 20% within a month. If you have a 5x leverage, it would be more than 100% gain!


Besides Sunny Optical Technology Group Co Ltd, AAC Technologies (2018 HK)-acoustic components supplier to Apple Inc also rose 7.1 per cent to HK$47.50 as reported by South China Morning Post. It has also risen more than 10% within a month. If you have a 5x leverage, it amounts to more than 50% gain!

What Is A DLC? Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Trade A Daily Leverage Certificate

What Is A DLC? Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Trade A Daily Leverage Certificate

Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC) are exchange-traded financial products that enable investors to take a leveraged exposure to an underlying asset, such as a blue chip stock or an equity index.


DLCs replicate the performance of an underlying asset versus its previous day closing level, with a fixed leverage factor.

There are new DLCs with 20 regional blue chip stocks ranging from DBS to Tencent, as the underlying asset! Check out the full list of DLCs here.

For investors who want to maximise their short term exposure to market movements, DLCs can provide the opportunity to increase the exposure by a fixed factor, up to 5 times.

For DLCs with blue chip stocks as the underlying, the returns are magnified by 5x! For indexes, you can select a leverage from 3x, 5x or 7x!

Also, it doesn’t matter if the market is bearish as well – you can buy a short DLC to capitalise on a bearish situation.

For the 5x DLC with Venture as the underlying asset, it actually yielded a return of more than 70% in a week, just back in February!

The following is a detailed infographic by SGX on the Top 5 characteristics of DLCs.
