Q1: What are Derivatives?

Derivatives are financial instruments used to manage one’s exposure in today’s volatile markets. A derivative product’s value depends upon and is derived from an underlying instrument, such as commodities, interest rates, indices or stocks.

In other words, a derivative is a financial contract with a value linked to the expected future price movements of an underlying asset.

It is used as a tool for price discovery, hedging, speculating and arbitraging.

Futures and options are derivative products mostly traded on exchanges. A futures contract is an agreement between two parties to buy or sell the underlying instrument at a specific time in the future at a specific price determined today.
