derivative instruments
/dɪˌrɪvətɪv 'ɪnstrυmənts/, derivatives /dɪ'rɪvətɪvz/ plural noun
any forms of traded security, such as option contracts, which are derived from ordinary bonds and shares, exchange rates or stock market indices
COMMENT: Derivatives traded on stock exchanges or futures exchanges include options on futures or exchange rates or interest rate. While they can be seen as a way of hedging against possible swings in exchange rates or commodity prices, they can also produce huge losses if the market goes against the trader.
