The Derivatives Boom

Everyone wants to be a millionaire. While trading in equities seems to be a popular way of doing that, investors these days have taken to derivatives trading to get rich quickly. But with all such ‘get-rich-quick’ schemes, there's a huge caveat: only ten percent of investors in the futures and options trading segment make any money.
