Derivative (Futures & Options) trading involves buying or selling derivative products. The idea is to hedge portfolio risks and make substantial gains from price volatility by paying nominal margins. They are called derivatives because they derive their value from underlying assets like equity, bonds, currency or commodities. To trade in derivatives, you will need an options or futures trading account.
