9.1 – Different Types of Contracts

By now, you should have a working understanding of futures contracts and how to trade them. But so far, we’ve mainly discussed futures with equity futures examples. But there are other contracts for other asset classes like currencies and commodities. We will look into them in this video.

And with this, we would like to conclude this video series on Futures Trading. We hope you enjoyed watching and learning from this module as much as we enjoyed curating it!

In the next series, we will discuss options.

  7. Rachit says:

    Hi Karthik, If I do not square my futures position till the end of the expiry day, will the net profit be credited to my account or I lose the profit. Because I know that the loss is adjusted against the margin money. And is it true for the options position also?

    • Karthik Rangappa says:

      Yes, thats right. But this is true only for Index derivatives as they are cash-settled. For stocks, these are physically settled i.e. stocks come and go to your demat account.

  8. Madhur Sharma says:

    Really Interesting content.. loving this series. all concepts are explained so well..

  9. SK says:

    Can it be possible we don’t get any buyers in a falling market and we cannot exit the future contract and have to physically settle?

    • Karthik Rangappa says:

      Yes, that is possible. Its called the liquidity risk. The contract will, however, get settled upon expiry.

  10. Krishna says:

    Is levrege should be high or low

  11. Amit Kumar Sarkar says:

    Whether shorting of derivative contract i.e. sell contract of F&0 segment require square off in the day itself as done for equities( i.e. shorting of equities need to be done in the day itself around 3:20 PM of the trading day called it intraday trading) or can wait up to expiry day. Request your comments at the earliest. Thanks & Regards.

    • Karthik Rangappa says:

      Amit, when you short stocks in the cash market, the short position has to be closed within the same day before the market closes. In derivatives market, the short positions can be carried forwarded.

  12. Amit Kumar Sarkar says:

    Dear Sir – Extremely grateful for your reply. Thanks & Regards. Amit

  13. Niraj says:

    Sir after understanding future contrat it really feel disapointed.
    The one lesson i learn from future is to invest whatever we have .
    Ex:delivery is best.

    • Karthik Rangappa says:

      Each instrument has its own pros ad cons; you need to figure how to use these instruments to match your risk and reward appetite perspective.

  14. Niraj says:

    But i got your point πŸ‘
