Futures and Options are basically tools for Hedging in Capital Markets. However, these are frequently used for trading with the intent of making huge profits with little investment. What people fail to understand is that Huge Gains are associated with Huge Risk as well. To compound the problem, most traders and courses on the subject project this profession as a money-making machine which no one should mis. Nothing can be far from truth than this belief.
The subject of Futures and Options is generally not thought in colleges and universities and if at all it is a part of curriculum, it is thought as a pure academic subject and not from the perspective of trading in stock market. The problem is further compounded when people interested in making trading their profession often take to learning from persons who are not qualified to teach this subject. There is a clear void in availability of structured courses and conceptual knowledge in this field.
