Answer / tanzeem

A derivative can be defined as something which
derives its value from an underlying product being a stock,

price.
The market price of a product is subject to
fluctuations due to various factors effecting its demand &

Derivative is divided into two i.e. Derive + native =
Derivative. Derive is to obtained or generated and native
is the source i.e. the real asset on which its Value can be

A Derivative is a document the vale of which depends on the
prevailing market price of the underlying assets which it
consists.Example: A Single Derivative may contain 50 Shares

contains Commodities such as Gold, Grains, Oils, Sugar,
Rice, Wheat etc.as its underlying assets.
