Derivatives Trading

Derivative is an instrument, such as Futures and Options contracts, which derives their values from an underlying security, or an index. Contract is a legal bonding between two or more parties, where the reason for the contract, time period and the amount is specified. The minimum value of a contract is 2 lacs. No contract value would be less than 2 lacs.

Derivatives are basically classified into the following:


Future is a contract to buy or sell specific quantities of a commodity or financial instrument at a specified price with delivery set at a specified time in the future.


An option is a contract, which gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation to buy or sell shares of the underlying security at a specific price on or before a specific date. "Option" as word says, the buyer has the right to decide whether he will conclude the deal at a future date or not. For this privilege, the buyer pays an additional amount called Premium.
