  6. 6. <ul><li>A derivatives exchange is a market where individuals trade standardized contracts that have been defined by the exchange. </li></ul><ul><li>A derivatives exchange acts as an intermediary to all related transactions, and takes initial margin from both sides of the trade to act as a guarantee. </li></ul>Exchange Traded Derivatives Market

  8. 8. <ul><li>Spot Contract: An agreement to buy or sell an asset today. </li></ul><ul><li>Spot Price: The price at which the asset changes hands on the spot date. </li></ul><ul><li>Spot date: The normal settlement day for a transaction done today. </li></ul><ul><li>Long position: The party agreeing to buy the underlying asset in the future assumes a long position. </li></ul><ul><li>Short position: The party agreeing to sell the asset in the future assumes a short position </li></ul><ul><li>Delivery Price: The price agreed upon at the time the contract is entered into. </li></ul>Basic Terminologies
  9. 9. <ul><li>Forward is a non-standardized contract between two parties to buy or sell an asset at a specified future time at a price agreed today. </li></ul><ul><li>For Example: If A has to buy a share 6 months from now. and B has to sell a share worth Rs.100. So they both agree to enter in a forward contract of Rs. 104. A is at “Long Position” and B is at “Short Position” Suppose after 6 months the price of share is Rs.110. so, A overall gained Rs. 4 but lost Rs. 6 while B made an overall profit of Rs. 6. </li></ul>Forward Contract
  10. 10. <ul><li>The derivative in which counterparties exchange certain benefits of one party's financial instrument for those of the other party's financial instrument. The benefits in question depend on the type of financial instruments involved.

  11. 11. <ul><li>Futures contract is a standardized contract between two parties to exchange a specified asset of standardized quantity and quality for a price agreed today (the futures price or the strike price ) with delivery occurring at a specified future date, the delivery date . </li></ul><ul><li>Since such contract is traded through exchange, the purpose of the futures exchange institution is to act as intermediary and minimize the risk of default by either party. Thus the exchange requires both parties to put up an initial amount of cash, the margin. </li></ul>Futures Contract
  12. 12. <ul><li>Since the futures price will generally change daily, the difference in the prior agreed-upon price and the daily futures price is settled daily also. </li></ul><ul><li>The exchange will draw money out of one party's margin account and put it into the other's so that each party has the appropriate daily loss or profit. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus on the delivery date, the amount exchanged is not the specified price on the contract but the spot value. </li></ul>Concept of Margin
  13. 13. <ul><li>An option is a derivative financial instrument that specifies a contract between two parties for a future transaction on an asset at a reference price. </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer of the option gains the right, but not the obligation, to engage in that transaction, while the seller incurs the corresponding obligation to fulfill the transaction. </li></ul>Options
  14. 14. <ul><li>Call Option: Right but not the obligation to buy </li></ul><ul><li>Put Option: Right but not the obligation to sell </li></ul><ul><li>Option Price: The amount per share that an option buyer pays to the seller </li></ul><ul><li>Expiration Date: The day on which an option is no longer valid </li></ul><ul><li>Strike Price: The reference price at which the underlying may be traded </li></ul><ul><li>Long Position: Buyer of an option assumes long position </li></ul><ul><li>Short Position: Seller of an option assumes short position </li></ul>Some Terminologies
