PART-III Analyzing Average Daily Turnover At NSE

(Graph 4c.1)Business Growth in Derivatives segment Since 2000-2010


Main factor that led to growth of derivatives are higher return. Stock Futures are most preferred for investing in derivatives.

Derivatives carry high risk factor and amongst that commodity derivatives are the most risky to trade due to high fluctuations. Money invested in real estate would fetch higher return compared to derivatives and would carry less risk.

Maximum people Hedging tool.




People already investing money through derivatives would like to increase their investments because they find it highly profitable.
Some people would prefer to invest their money through derivatives if they are provided with knowledge and a reliable broker.


People with low investment and less knowledge should not enter derivatives market. SEBI should be more vigilant to check the volatility triggered by operators.

One should invest for long term and that too only in blue chip companies.
One should always invest their money and should not speculate because speculation can cause heavy losses. If one wants to make money in stock market he should invest gradually in cash segment.


According to responses given by brokers and investors a conclusion can be attained that there is great market ahead for derivatives in future. As fifty percent of people are ready to take knowledge and invest their money in derivatives, existing investors are ready to increase their investments which is healthy sign for the markets. Even average turnover at NSE has increased over last 10 years which shows us trend that in future there will be rise in derivatives trading.
