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.
