equity refers to the share that an investor owns in a company. This allows the investor to reap the same benefits and success as the owner.
Your shares, which are equity securities can be used as underlying assets to lend value to financial instruments called derivatives. Also assets are bonds, commodities and securities. Their value is affected by the price movements in Indian stocks and company profits. The share price is what determines the value of a share.
A derivative is an agreement between two or more entities that allows them to purchase or sell future assets. This contract is also known as a contract. Investors can make profits by anticipating its future value.
1. Risk management:
To transfer or transform risks associated with assets, investors trade equity derivatives. This shifts risk from individuals who are cautious to those who take high risks in the stock market. It allows the former to increase their safety.
2. Physical settlement
While many investors want to retain their shares over the long-term, they also wish to take advantage of price fluctuations in the near term. Physical settlement allows you to make money from shares that are not being used.
3. Protection against fluctuations:
Hedging is the act of investing in securities that are related to an asset in order to lower the chance of an asset's price falling. This will allow you to hedge against a fall in share prices and protect you from rising shares prices.
4. Arbitrage trading:
Arbitrage trading is the simultaneous sale of assets in two share markets and purchase in another to make a profit on the difference in price. These two markets in India are the National Stock Exchange NSE and Bombay Stock Exchange . Profit is made when a share is more valuable in one market than it is in the other.
5. Margin trading
You only pay a margin when trading on a contract. This can sometimes lead to large amounts. This will allow for you to keep a high outstanding and ensure that your profit from accurate predictions leads to an exponentially higher growth.
