Invest in Currency Derivatives

How Do I Qualify To Invest In Currency Derivatives?

  • Trading in the derivatives market is very similar to trading in the cash segment of the stock markets.

  • You need to fulfil 3 key requisites:

    a. Demat account:

    Your Demat account stores your securities in electronic format. It is unique to every investor and trader.

    b. Trading account:

    You need this account to conduct trades. The account number is your identity in the markets. This makes the trade unique to you. It is linked to the demat account, and thus ensures that YOUR shares go to your demat account.

    c. Margin maintenance:

    This pre-requisite is unique to derivatives trading. While many in the cash segment too use margins to conduct trades, this is predominantly used in the derivatives segment.

Q. What is the required deposit before trading in Derivatives?

A. Unlike purchasing stocks from the cash market, when you purchase futures contracts you are required to deposit only a percentage of the value of your outstanding position with the stock exchange, irrespective of whether you buy or sell futures. This mandatory deposit, which is called margin money, covers an initial margin and an exposure margin. These margins act as a risk containment measure for the exchanges and serve to preserve the integrity of the market. You are expected to deposit the initial margin upfront. How much you have to deposit is decided by the stock exchange. It is prescribed as a percentage of the total value of your outstanding position. It varies for different positions as it takes into account the average volatility of a stock over a specified time period and the interest cost. This initial margin is adjusted daily depending upon the market value of your open positions. The exposure margin is used to control volatility and excessive speculation in the derivatives markets. This margin is also stipulated by the exchanged and levied on the value of the contract that you buy or sell. Besides the initial and exposure margins, you also have to maintain Mark-to-Market (MTM) margins. This covers the daily difference between the cost of the contract and its closing price on the day of purchase. Thereafter, the MTM margin covers the differences in closing price from day to day.
