What are the different instruments available in India under the derivative segment?

There are two kinds of derivatives which are currently available for trading on NSE and BSE - Futures and Options. Futures Contract is a standardized contract between two participants to buy or sell an underlying asset at a particular future date and a specific price.

On the other hand, an option is a contract which gives the right to the buyer, but does not impose obligation, to either buy or sell an underlying asset at a particular future date and a specific price.

You can trade in Future and Options under the F&O tab on ICICIdirect.com by logging into your account.
