A derivative is a security whose price is dependent upon or derived from one or more underlying assets.. Equity derivatives such as: Forex, Binary Options and CFDs offer retail investors another way to participate in the price action of an underlying security Trading. Volatility is always of concern to investors, and the long-only approach has shown weaknesses.Retail investor interest in derivatives continues to grow as investors learn more about the instruments and see them as an attractive way to hedge against risk and generate income. An influx of day traders in the derivatives market is driving new online trading platforms and specially Binary Options trading platforms.A good example for this type of platform is eToro. Originally launched as a Forex and Binary Options trading platform in 2007, eToro has already become one of the pioneers of social trading – by allowing users to chat, follow and copy each other, as on Twitter and Facebook.
