Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], January 30: Alice Blue, a Bangalore-based discount stock broker that offers a platform to trade equities, derivatives, commodities, currencies, mutual funds, and IPOs has set an ambitious goal of reaching 1 million derivative traders by 2025. In the past few years, the financial market system in India is witnessing a huge surge in derivatives’ turnover and trading volume. The surge in turnover of derivatives is unprecedented and meteoric, as it has even surpassed the volumes of the cash segment.

This is where Alice Blue steps in and aims to disrupt the derivative market of India.
What is Derivative Trading and How Alice Blue is making strides in the market?
Derivatives are instruments that derive their value from underlying assets, such as stocks, indices, commodities, and currencies. They are used to hedge against risks, speculate on price movements, or leverage returns. Derivative trading in India is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and can be done through various exchanges, such as the National Stock Exchange (NSE), the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), and the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX).
According to SEBI data, the total turnover of the derivatives market in India was Rs. 1,444 lakh crore in 2020-21, a 58% increase from the previous year. The equity derivatives segment accounted for 88% of the total turnover, followed by the currency derivatives segment with 8%, and the commodity derivatives segment with 4%.
