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. SEBI, the markets regulator, has directed brokers to run disclosures explaining the risks of F&O trading on their websites — but that doesn't seem to deter investors. Trading volumes in derivatives hit a record in August, while average daily turnovers have surged 34.5 times from FY19. Zero-day trading options, that have cash settlements and are cheaper than monthly options, have led the charge. So what are futures and options?
