What is a DLC?

A Daily Leverage Certificate (DLC)  is a form of structured financial instrument issued by banks and traded on the securities market. DLCs offer investors fixed leverage of 3 to 7 times the daily performance of an underlying index, be it a rising or falling market. The basic principle is simple – if the underlying index moves by 1% from its closing price of the previous trading day, the value of the 3x DLC will move by 3%.

SGX is Asia’s first venue to offer trading in DLCs, allowing investors to gain fixed leveraged exposure to developed Asian market indices and single stocks. This comes without the features impacting pricing for options such as implied volatility, time decay or margin calls.

DLCs were first introduced in Europe in 2012, where they are also called constant leverage products or factor certificates. They received wide interest from investors in Europe shortly after their launch.

How do you trade DLCs?

Daily Long and Short

DLCs are designed to be traded over short periods of time, predominantly on an intra-day basis. DLCs offer the flexibility to trade both rising and falling markets. For each underlying and leverage level, there is a long and short DLC available. A bullish investor who anticipates that the underlying index is set to rise over the trading day can select, for example, a 3x Long DLC, which will rise in value by 3% for each 1% rise in the underlying index (before costs & fees). Conversely, a bearish investor who anticipates the underlying index to fall can select, for example, the 3x Short DLC, which will rise in value by 3% for every 1% fall in the underlying index (before costs & fees).

Compounding Effect

If an investor’s trading horizon extends beyond a few days, it’s important to note that the performance of the DLC may vary from the leverage factor of the DLC. This is due to the performance of both the underlying index and the reset of DLC at the end of each trading day. When markets open the following day, the performance of the underlying index and the DLC will be measured from the closing levels recorded on the previous trading day. This means that any subsequent performance of the DLC is calculated based on the performance achieved the day before. This same process is repeated on each trading day. Over the period of more than one day, the profits or losses are thus compounded.

Airbag Mechanism

An airbag mechanism is built into each DLC to slow the rate of loss in the DLC during extreme market conditions. Each DLC listed has a pre-set trigger for the airbag mechanism, which is typically activated upon a 10% movement in the underlying index for a 5x DLC and a 20% movement for a 3x DLC (based on the closing price of the underlying index in the previous trading day). The airbag mechanism will only be triggered upon movements of the underlying index that goes against the direction of the product. For example, if the underlying index falls by 20%, (a) the airbag mechanism for a 3x Long DLC will be triggered, as the value of the DLC would decline with the drop in the underlying index. However, (b) the airbag mechanism for a 3x Short DLC would not be triggered because with the fall in the underlying index; This DLC’s value would increase in value by 60% (3 x 20%).

As a leverage product, Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC) give investors  increased exposure to an underlying asset with the potential for higher returns. The leverage of a DLC can be 3, 5 or 7 times. Based on 5x leverage, if the underlying asset, typically a single stock or index, moves 2% in favour from its previous closing price, you earn a 10% gain on the DLC (2% * 5 = 10%). However, if the underlying asset moves in the direction against your position, you could experience a -10% loss.
