1 Day Workshop on Currency Derivatives Market


Since inception of FOREX market in India in year 1978, steady rise in India’s foreign trade along with liberalization in foreign exchange regime has led to large inflow of foreign currency into the system in the form of FDI and FII investments. To provide a liquid, transparent and vibrant market for foreign exchange rate risk management, Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) have allowed trading in currency futures on stock exchanges like NSE, MCX-SX in 2008 and recently on USEI in India, initially based on the USDINR exchange rate and subsequently on three other currency pairs – EURINR, GBPINR and JPYINR. Recently option trading of currency pair USDINR is also introduced on NSE in October 2010.

As on Nov. 11, 2011 total turnover in currency derivatives segment stands at Rs. 129,164.50 million for MCX-SX, Rs. 104,687.8 million for NSE, and Rs. 193, 73.7 million of USE India. Of total volume on all exchanges, currency pair USDINR, is the most traded contract with 96.5% of total volume, EURINR stands second at 2.5% and 1% by JPYINR and GBPINR. The total turnover for USDINR option on NSE stands at Rs. 353, 71.8 million for the same date.

This fast paced growth of currency derivatives market also created the dearth of practically trained and certified currency derivatives trading professionals and hence emerged the excellent career opportunities for budding professionals in the area of jobbing, trading, research and analysis and other related domains. There is a huge demand for skilled and certified professionals not only having conceptual understanding of the segment, but involved in exploring opportunities for profitable trade using leverage provided by various currency derivatives instruments. This high-end requirement of the industry has led us to evolve the training module that inculcates this required skill sets and professional approach into the aspiring market players.

It was by far the best workshop, rather than a lecture that we are used to. I could not understand share market and its working before this. You were good. Though I was not too excited about the finance before. But it was a transformation.
