When we talk about stock market trading, then generally we know so many things like SENSEX, NIFTY and how to buy or sell a particular stock or index. But the problem comes in the derivative market, like “What is future and options”, “What calls or put” etc. The derivative market is like a two-edged sword. It is the best tool to make bigger money, but if not handled properly then it ends up losing big amounts too. So it is very important to be well trained in it before entering the market. Also, it’s a common belief that the derivative market is tough to understand.
SMTA – Stock Market Trading Academy overview Stock market trading academy has a view that with proper knowledge of derivatives along with practical live market training, it’s not difficult to master this market. Since margins used in the future and options are way less than equity trades, so you can work more with limited funds. It gives you a platform to earn big with less capital too. We at SMTA have an extensive module on derivatives. The module explains how options are priced and the way they’re wont to create bull and bear spreads. Also, you will learn about volatility, income, hedging strategies, vertical spread, horizontal spread, diagonal spread, straddle, long straddle, etc. and about how technical analysis can be used as a tool for both options and futures trading.
Even for equity trading, derivative strategies can be used as hedging strategies. We advise our students to always manage their risks by different, foolproof strategies. We believe to safeguard ourselves against losses before thinking of profits. Money saved is money earned.
