The National Stock Exchange (NSE) on Thursday, April 18, announced it had received approval from market regulator SEBI for trading in the monthly futures and options (F&O) contracts on the Nifty Next 50 index which will start from Wednesday, April 24.

"...approval received from SEBI, Futures and Options contracts on Nifty Next 50 Index shall be made available for trading in Future & Options segment with effect from April 24, 2024," NSE said on April 18.

F&O are a particular kind of trading instrument falling in the category of derivatives. They have gained prominence in stock markets in recent years. In trading, a derivative is a contract that derives its value from an underlying financial asset. Under F&O trading, the investor doesn’t necessarily have to buy the underlying asset but can gain from its price fluctuations in the market.
