Debt instrument represents a contract whereby one party lends money to another on pre-determined terms with regards to rate and periodicity of interest, repayment of principal amount by the borrower to the lender. In the Indian securities markets, the term ‘bond’ is used for debt instruments issued by the Central and State governments and public sector organizations and the term ‘debenture’ is used for instruments issued by the private corporate sector.


Derivative:- Derivative is a product whose value is derived from the value of one or more basic variables, called underlying. The underlying asset can be equity, index, foreign exchange (forex), commodity or any other asset. Derivative products initially emerged as hedging devices against fluctuations in commodity prices and commodity-linked derivatives remained the sole form of such products for almost three hundred years. The financial derivatives came into the spotlight in the post-1970 period due to growing instability in the financial markets. However, since their emergence, these products have become very popular and by the 1990s, they accounted for about two-thirds of total transactions in derivative products.

An Index An Index shows how a specified portfolio of share prices are moving in order to give an indication of market trends. It is a basket of securities and the average price movement of the basket of securities indicates the index movement, whether upwards or downwards.

Dematerialization: It is the process by which physical certificates of an investor are converted to an equivalent number of securities in electronic form and credited to the investor’s account with his Depository Participant (DP).


                  functions of Securities Market


 Securities Markets is a place where buyers and sellers of securities can enter into transactions to purchase and sell shares, bonds, debentures, etc. Further, it performs an important role in enabling corporates, entrepreneurs to raise resources for their companies and business ventures through public issues. Transfer of resources from those having idle resources (investors) to others who have a need for them (corporate) is most efficiently achieved through the securities market. Stated formally, securities markets provide channels for reallocation of savings to investments and entrepreneurship. Savings are linked to investments by a variety of intermediaries, through a range of financial products, called ‘Securities’.

Which are the securities one can invest in? Shares Government Securities Derivative products Units of Mutual Funds etc. , are some of the securities investors in the securities market can invest in.


                      Role of the ‘Primary Market

The primary market provides the channel for the sale of new securities. The primary market provides an opportunity to issuers of securities; Government as well as corporates, to raise resources to meet their requirements of investment and/or discharge some obligation. They may issue the securities at face value, or at a discount/premium and these securities may take a variety of forms such as equity, debt, etc. They may issue the securities in the domestic market and/or international market.


Need to issue shares to the public:- Most companies are usually started privately by their promoter(s). However, the promoters’ capital and the borrowings from banks and financial institutions may not be sufficient for setting up or running the business over the long term. So companies invite the public to contribute towards the equity and issue shares to individual investors. The way to invite share capital from the public is through a ‘Public Issue’. Simply stated, a public issue is an offer to the public to subscribe to the share capital of a company. Once this is done, the company allots shares to the applicants as per the prescribed rules and regulations laid down by SEBI.


Meant by Market Capitalization:--- The market value of a quoted company, which is calculated by multiplying its current share price (market price) by the number of shares in issue is called market capitalization. E.g. Company A has 120 million shares in issue. The current market price is Rs. 100. The market capitalization of company A is Rs. 12000 million.


What is a Prospectus:--- A large number of new companies float public issues. While a large number of these companies are genuine, quite a few may want to exploit the investors. Therefore, it is very important that an investor before applying for any issue identifies the future potential of a company. A part of the guidelines issued by SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) is the disclosure of 23 information to the public. This disclosure includes information like the reason for raising the money, the way money is proposed to be spent, the return expected on the money, etc. This information is in the form of ‘Prospectus’ which also includes information regarding the size of the issue, the current status of the company, its equity capital, its current and past performance, the promoters, the project, cost of the project, means of financing, product and capacity, etc. It also contains a lot of mandatory information regarding underwriting and statutory compliances. This helps investors to evaluate short term and long term prospects of the company.


Meant by Secondary market:--- Secondary market refers to a market where securities are traded after being initially offered to the public in the primary market and/or listed on the Stock Exchange. The majority of the trading is done in the secondary market. The secondary market comprises of equity markets and the debt markets.


Contract Note:-- Contract Note is a confirmation of trades done on a particular day on behalf of the client by a trading member. It imposes a legally enforceable relationship between the client and the trading member with respect to purchase/sale and settlement of trades. It also helps to settle disputes/claims between the investor and the trading member. It is a prerequisite for filing a complaint or arbitration proceeding against the trading member in case of a dispute. A valid contract note should be in the prescribed form, contain the details of trades, stamped with requisite value and duly signed by the authorized signatory. Contract notes are kept in duplicate, the trading member and the client should keep one copy each. After verifying the details contained therein, the client keeps one copy and returns the second copy to the trading member duly acknowledged by him.


Precautions सावधानीय़ाँ:- must one take before investing in the stock marketsछ- Here are some useful pointers to bear in mind before you invest in the markets: Make sure your broker is registered with SEBI and the exchanges and do not deal with unregistered intermediaries. Ensure that you receive contract notes for all your transactions from your broker within one working day of execution of the trades. All investments carry the risk of some kind. Investors should always know the risk that they are taking and invest in a manner that matches their risk tolerance. Do not be misled by market rumors, luring advertisement or ‘hot tips’ of the day. Make informed decisions by studying the fundamentals of the company. Find out the business the company is into, its future prospects, quality of management, past track record, etc Sources of knowing about a company are through annual reports, economic magazines, databases available with vendors or your financial adviser. If your financial adviser or broker advises you to invest in a company you have never heard of, be cautious. Spend some time checking out about the company before investing. Do not be attracted by announcements of fantastic results/news reports, about a company. Do your own research before investing in any stock. Do not be attracted to stocks based on what an internet website promotes unless you have done an adequate study of the company. Investing in very low priced stocks or what are known as penny stocks does not guarantee high returns. Be cautious about stocks that show a sudden spurt in price or trading activity. Any advice or tip that claims that there are huge returns expected, especially for acting quickly, may be risky and may lead to losing some, most, or all of your money.

 Mutual Fund Unit:- जब बहुत से निवेशक मिल कर एक फण्ड में निवेश करते हैं तो फण्ड को बराबर बराबर हिस्सों में बाँट दिया जाता है जिसे इकाई या यूनिट Unit कहते हैं.


EPS क्या है और कैसे गिनें प्रति शेयर आय ---- कंपनी की कुल शुद्ध लाभ से हर शेयर के हिस्से में कितनी रकम आयेगी उसे ही Earning per Share प्रति शेयर आय यानि EPS कहते हैं। इसे गिनेंगे शुद्ध लाभ / कुल शेयरों की संख्या यदि 10 करोड़ रु की पूंजी वाली कंपनी जिसके 10 रु की कीमत वाले 1 करोड़ शेयर हों और वह कंपनी 20 करोड़ रुपये का शुद्ध लाभ कमाती है तो उसकी प्रति शेयर आय 20 रुपये होगी: 20 करोड़ / 1 करोड़ = 20 यदि कोई कंपनी केवल तिमाही नतीजे ही घोषित करती है तो उन नतीजों के आधार पर कंपनी के पूरे साल के प्रति शेयर आय की भी गणना की जा सकती है।


PE Ratio पी ई रेश्यो क्या :- PE Ratio यह जानने का तरीका है कि कंपनी की आय का जो हिस्सा प्रति शेयर को प्राप्त होगा उसके अनुपात में शेयर की बाजार में कीमत क्या है. PE Ratio जानने के लिए सबसे पहले गिनते हैं EPS यानि प्रति शेयर आय. उसके बाद एक शेयर की कीमत से EPS को विभाजित करके PE Ratio निकाल सकते हैं. पी ई रेश्यो =शेयर की बाजार में कीमत/प्रति शेयर आय PE Ratio = Merket Price / EPS अब इसे एक उदहारण से समझते हैं. मान लीजिये अबस कंपनी के दस रुपये मूल्य के 100000 शेयर हैं. कंपनी की वार्षिक आय है रुपये 2,00,000. अब शेयर का EPS होगा 2,00,000/100000 = रु 2. अब यदि शेयर का बाजार में मूल्य रु 18 है तो शेयर का PE Ratio होगा: PE Ratio = 18/2 =9.


The net asset value (NAV) :--- of a mutual fund indicates the price at which the units of that mutual fund are bought or sold. It represents the fund's market value after subtracting the liabilities. Net Asset Value, या NAV का अर्थ है कुल संपत्ति का मूल्य. किसी भी Mutual Fund म्यूचुअल फण्ड में नेट एसेट वैल्यू , या एनएवी का मतलब नकदी सहित पोर्टफोलियो के सभी शेयरों के बाजार मूल्य के कुल योग में से देनदारियों को घटाने के बाद बकाया जो भी बचे उसे इकाइयों की कुल संख्या से विभाजित करके प्राप्त किया जाता है.

 Reverse Split:- रिवर्स Split कभी-कभी कोई कंपनी रिवर्स स्प्लिट जारी करेगी। जब ऐसा होता है तो शेयरधारक के पास अधिक मूल्य पर कम शेयर होंगे। उदाहरण के लिए, एक विशिष्ट रिवर्स विभाजन 1 विभाजन के लिए 1 है। उदाहरण के लिए, यदि कोई कंपनी rs 1 शेयर पर ट्रेडिंग कर रहा है और आपके पास 100 शेयर हैं, तो 10 स्प्लिट के लिए 1 के बाद, आपके पास rs 10 शेयर पर 10 शेयर होंगे। एक कंपनी एक रिवर्स विभाजन का प्रदर्शन कर सकती है, जब उनकी शेयर की कीमत बहुत कम स्तर पर आ गई है और वे संभावित निवेशकों के लिए और अधिक सम्मानजनक दिखाई देने के लिए शेयर की कीमत में वृद्धि करना चाहते हैं। इसके अलावा, कुछ एक्सचेंज एक स्टॉक को सूचीबद्ध नहीं करेंगे, जब कीमत 30 दिनों के लिए एक निश्चित स्तर से कम हो जाएगी।

ETF यानी Exchange Traded Fund एक्सचेंज ट्रेडेड फण्ड वास्तव में इंडेक्स फण्ड होते हैं जो कि स्टॉक एक्सचेंज में शेयरों की तरह ही ख़रीदे और बेचे जाते हैं. विश्व भर में ETF यानी Exchange Traded Fund एक्सचेंज ट्रेडेड फण्ड रिटेल निवेशकों और संस्थागत निवेशकों में बहुत ही लोकप्रिय निवेश का साधन है. हम यह कह सकते हैं कि यह एक सस्ता निवेश का साधन है क्योंकि इस फण्ड में चार्जेज आम तौर पर दुसरे फंड्स के मुकाबले कम होते हैं. आप इन्हें अपने ब्रोकर से अथवा सीधे फण्ड हाउस से भी खरीद सकते हैं. जहां म्यूच्यूअल फण्ड दिन के आखिर में NAV पर लिए जाते हैं, ETF ट्रेडिंग के घंटों में ही उस समय के ट्रेडिंग के वास्तविक कीमतों पर ख़रीदे और बेचे जा सकते हैं. यानि ETF में डे ट्रेडिंग भी संभव है.


Exchange-Traded Funds are essentially Index Funds that are listed and traded on exchanges like stocks. An ETF is a basket of stocks that reflects the composition of an Index, like Nifty 50. The ETFs trading value is based on the net asset value of the underlying stocks that it represents.

Future & Options                                                                   Future & Options

Future and Options are Derivatives.


(A) Future

 Future:- A futures contract is an agreement to buy or sell an asset at a future date at an agreed-upon price.

 How do futures work?

Futures contracts allow players to secure a specific price and protect against the possibility of wild price swings (up or down) ahead. To illustrate how futures work, consider jet fuel:

An airline company wanting to lock in jet fuel prices to avoid an unexpected the increase could buy a futures contract agreeing to buy a set amount of jet fuel for delivery in the future at a specified price.

A fuel distributor may sell a futures contract to ensure it has a steady market for fuel and to protect against an unexpected decline in prices.

Both sides agree on specific terms: To buy (or sell) 1 million gallons of fuel, delivering it in 90 days, at a price of $45 per gallon.


(B) Option:- Options are contracts that give the bearer the right, but not the obligation, to either buy or sell an amount of some underlying asset at a pre-determined price at or before the contract expires.

An option is a contract giving the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy (in the case of a call) or sell (in the case of a put) the underlying asset at a specific price on or before a certain date.

Options trading allows you to buy or sell stocks, ETFs, etc. at a specific price within a specific date. This type of trading also gives buyers the flexibility to not buy the security at the specified price or date.

While it is a little more complex than stock trading, options can help you make relatively larger profits if the price of the security goes up. That’s because you don’t have to pay the full price for the security in an options contract. In the same way, options trading can restrict your losses if the price of the security goes down, which is known as hedging.

The right to buy a security is known as ‘Call’, while the right to sell is called ‘Put’.

Key Factors 

Options are used as:-

Leverage: Options help you profit from changes in share prices without putting down the full price of the share. You get control over the shares without buying them outright.

Hedging : They can also be used to protect yourself from fluctuations in the price of a share and letting you buy or sell the shares at a pre-determined price for a specified period of time.

One of the integral parts of hedging yourself against market fluctuations are to do financial planning.

Just as futures contracts minimize risks for buyers by setting a pre-determined future price for an underlying asset, options contracts do the same, however, without the obligation to buy that exists in a futures contract.

The seller of an options contract is called the ‘options writer’. Unlike the buyer in an options contract, the seller has no rights and must sell the assets at the agreed price if the buyer chooses to execute the options contract on or before the agreed date, in exchange for an upfront payment from the buyer.

There is no physical exchange of documents at the time of entering into an options contract. The transactions are recorded in respective exchanges.

Open interest:- It is the total number of outstanding derivative contracts, such as options or futures that have not been settled. It's important to note that open interest equals the total number of contracts, not the total of each transaction by every buyer and seller. 

An increase in open interest along with an increase in price mostly indicates long positions being built up, except for very weak stocks where some traders may short the stock on a rally.

VIX Futures

Volatility is the most basic quality of the stock markets. This is reflected in the fluctuation of stock prices. Traders often speculate about the short-term movement of stock prices, and accordingly buy or sell. Gauging volatility is a constant task for participants as it directly impacts their exposure and profitability. However, today, not only can you quantify the volatility, but also trade on the same. This can be done using the VIX futures which are being introduced on the NSE soon.


Here’s all you need to know:

    VIX and VIX futures:

India VIX is an index to measure expected volatility using prices of Nifty Index Options – a derivative instrument. It thus helps quantify the sentiment on the market.

Futures are contracts obligating the buyer to purchase an asset (or the seller to sell an asset), such as a physical commodity or a financial instrument, at a predetermined future date and price. These contracts are traded in the F&O market. These contracts have a fixed lot size, meaning, one contract will have a fixed number of shares.

    How to trade:

“VIX futures will be traded in the derivative segment of the National Stock Exchange (NSE). There will be three contracts available at any point in time. Every Tuesday, a contract will expire. These contracts will be priced by multiplying the India VIX value with 100. For example, if the value of India VIX is 23, the price of that contract will be quoted as 2300. NSE has not announced the lot size of the contracts.

     VIX and Nifty:

Higher the VIX level, greater is the nervousness in the Street. This is often followed by a market slump. Similarly, a fall in the VIX is followed by a rise in the markets. Investors can thus use the VIX futures to bet on volatility. For example, if they expect the market to fall in the short term, they can short the Nifty and Long the VIX futures contract.
