Even though derivative goods have been used since the dawn of time, the recent financial turmoil has sped up this field's advancement. Products that fluctuate in value in response to changes in the value of an underlying product are known as derivative products. Derivatives may now be used to manage risk, profit from arbitrage opportunities, and engage in speculation. Depending on how they are traded over the counter and on the stock market, derivative instruments can be categorized. The transactions that are employed the most frequently include forward, swap, interest swap, and option trades.

This course has been created to enlighten participants on the fundamental characteristics, pricing, and analysis of derivative products, including future exchange rates, indices, stocks, interest rates, and commodities, as well as how to use derivatives to manage risk. The forms and techniques of speculation, risk management, and arbitrage transactions will be demonstrated in practice using the examples presented during the training. All the characteristics of local and international futures contracts, actual trading portfolios, and investment methods will be thoroughly studied.
