Description


The derivatives market refers to the financial market where the trade of derivative products takes place. Hedgers, speculators, arbitrageurs and margin traders are major participants in a derivatives market. There are four major forms of financial derivative contracts which include options, futures, forwards and swaps. Options are a type of financial derivatives in which the buyer has the right but not the obligation to buy or sell the principal asset at a specific price called the strike price. There are two types of options, namely, call option and put option. Exchange-traded derivatives and over the counter (OTC) derivatives are the two ways of trading in a derivatives market. Hedging is a form of risk management in which the investors protect shares through the use of derivatives. This book provides significant information of the derivatives market to help develop a good understanding of its valuation and risk management. Some of the diverse topics covered herein address the varied aspects that fall under this category. The book will provide comprehensive knowledge to the readers.
