What is Futures Trading?

Futures trading is a type of contract-based trading in which two parties, such as a buyer and a seller, make a deal. Both sides can agree on a price at which they will buy and sell the underlying assets. Stocks or other financial securities can be the underlying asset. Futures end on a certain date. Before the futures contract’s end date, both parties need to make their trade. Stock exchanges keep an eye on every contract.

A futures contract is for traders who know what they’re doing. You can use futures to protect your portfolio and take advantage of opportunities. Open an F&O account with Share India to start trading futures. Share India will give you live updates and good insights.

When you trade futures, take note of the expiry date and the contract size. In India, the expiration date for derivative investments like futures is the last Thursday of expiry month. It’s also worth noting in futures trading you can trade futures contracts having a near month expiry, the next month expiry, or far month expiry. In derivative trading, one must also be aware of the contract size or lot size. A single futures lot may contain multiple units of the underlying assets. The number of units per lot depends on the underlying asset.

Since derivative trading in the share market involves trading lots containing multiple units of the underlying assets, unlike the cash market where you can trade individual units of the assets, futures trading has a higher entry barrier. However, that said as a futures trader, you take a future position by paying only a portion of the entire transaction called margin. You pay the remaining amount when you settle the contract during expiry.

If you wish to become a practitioner of derivatives trading in India, it is also essential that you know how futures contracts are settled. In the case of index futures (Nifty or Bank futures), the difference is settled in cash. However, in the case of stock futures, the contract is settled by delivering or accepting the delivery of the stock.

Futures trading can be a great way to create wealth if you understand the derivative trading and trade responsibly.

Why Should You Trade in Futures?

High Liquidity

High liquidity in the futures markets allows you to easily buy and sell futures contracts.


Futures trading can be a viable approach to diversify your investment portfolio.

Hedge Your Investment Portfolio

Trade futures to hedge large long positions in specific stocks if you foresee a potential decline in the stock’s price.


Use leverage responsibly and take larger positions by deploying smaller chunks of capital.

How Futures Trading Works?

  1. Predetermined Price & Expiry

    When you trade a futures contract, you are obliged to transact the underlying asset on the fixed date and price.

  2. Deposit the required margin

    Trading futures requires you to deposit a margin with the broker, which is a portion of the total transaction amount, regardless of whether you are buying or selling.

  3. Take a long or short position

    Take a long position or buy the futures contract if you believe the price of the underlying asset will see an appreciation. Derivatives in the stock market work on the research & decisions of buying and selling contracts, so if you sell the contract you believe the price of the underlying asset will decline.

  4. Settle the contract or close the position before expiry

    On the expiry date, you settle the contract by buying or selling the underlying asset, in the case of stock futures, or settling it in cash in the case of index futures. Or, if you are satisfied with your profits, you can close your position before the expiry. Derivatives investment can be risky if you are a beginner or unaware about the risk of derivative trading.
