You can trade in currency futures on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Futures trading allows you to enter into a contract and take buy/sell positions in a currency of any country. We offers you a simple and convenient way to trade and hedge your currency risk in four pair of currencies- Dollar, Euro, Pound and Japanese Yen against Indian Rupee.
Trading in futures is not as complex as it sounds. If, during the contract period, the price moves as you had anticipated, you make a healthy profit, and vice versa.
An option is a contract between two parties (the seller and the buyer) that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation to buy or sell the security, on or before a particular date. To carry out this transaction, the buyer has to pay certain percentage of order value as margin.
There are two types of options: call and put. The former allows the trader to buy the currency at a certain price, while the latter allows him to sell it at a certain price.
