The Investor´s Guidebook to Derivatives: Stuart R. Veale
Investors Behaviour in Equity Derivative Market: Radhakrishnan Narmadha, Mohan Sumathy
Learn about derivatives with iMinds Money´s insightful fast-knowledge series. In economics, a derivative is defined as a financial instrument or an ´´agreement” between two parties that is based on an ´´underlying” and generally tangible asset, such as a stock or a commodity. For example, during the process of purchase there is a financial exchange for what is essentially a material benefit or instrument. Therefore, a derivative merely ´´derives” its value from this underlying asset which is of true material value. Financial investors use derivatives as a means of leverage in what is known as the derivative market. An example of a common form of derivative is that of a customer who walks into a store and purchases a cigar in exchange for money. In this case, the exchange is complete and both parties hold tangible items. However, if the customer had phoned the dealer in advance, requesting the cigar be held for two hours until he/ she arrived and the retailer agrees, then a derivative is created. The agreement is simply derived from a proposed exchange, that they will trade money for cigar in two hours, not now. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance... whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds unique fast-learning modules as seen in the Financial Times, Wired, Vogue, Robb Report, Sky News, LA Times, Mashable and many others... the future of general knowledge acquisition. 1.

CFDs (Contracts for Difference) sind neuartige derivative Anlageinstrumente. Mit ihnen handeln Privatanleger fast so wie institutionelle Investoren. Mit CFDs können Investoren an Bewegungen von Aktien, Indizes, Anleihen, Rohstoffen und Währungen partizipieren ohne den jeweiligen Basiswert besitzen zu müssen. Der besondere Reiz von CFDs liegt in ihrer Hebelwirkung: Mit einem vergleichsweise geringem Einsatz (Margin) lassen sich erheblich größere Gegenwerte an der Börse bewegen. Außerdem erlauben sie es Anlegern, nicht nur auf steigende, sondern auch auf fallende Kurse zu spekulieren.
In 2006, hedge-fund manager John Paulson realized something few others suspected: that the housing market and the value of subprime mortgages were grossly inflated and headed for a major fall. Paulson´s background was in mergers and acquisitions, however, and he knew little about real estate or how to wager against housing. He had spent his career as an also-ran on Wall Street. But Paulson was convinced this was his chance to make his mark. He just wasn´t sure how to do it. Colleagues at investment banks scoffed at him, and investors dismissed him. Even pros skeptical about housing shied away from the complicated derivative investments that Paulson was just learning about. But Paulson and a handful of renegade investors, such as Jeffrey Greene and Michael Burry, began to bet heavily against risky mortgages and precarious financial companies. Timing is everything, though. Initially, Paulson and the others lost tens of millions of dollars as real estate and stocks continued to soar. Rather than back down, however, Paulson redoubled his bets, putting his hedge fund and his reputation on the line. In the summer of 2007, the markets began to implode, bringing Paulson early profits, but also sparking efforts to rescue real estate and derail him. By year´s end, though, John Paulson had pulled off the greatest trade in financial history, earning more than $15 billion for his firm - a figure that dwarfed George Soros´s billion-dollar currency trade in 1992. Paulson made billions more in 2008 by transforming his gutsy move. Some of the underdog investors who attempted the daring trade also reaped fortunes. But others who got the timing wrong met devastating failure, discovering that being early and right wasn´t nearly enough. Written by the prize-winning reporter who broke the story in The Wall Street Journal, The Greatest Trade Ever is a superbly written, fast-paced, behind-the-scenes narrative of how a contrarian foresaw an escalating f 1.
