Due to the increased effects of globalisation, the Indian financial stock Market is being increasingly exposed to global market factors and by rising levels of complexity of risks.

The last two decades have witnessed many-fold increase in the volume of international trade and business due to the wave of globalisation and liberalisation sweeping across the world. This has led to rapid and unpredictable variations in financial assets prices, interest rates and exchange rates, and subsequently, exposing the corporate world to an unwieldy financial risk. In India, the emergence and growth of derivatives market is relatively a recent phenomenon. Since its inception in June 2000, derivatives market has exhibited exponential growth both in terms of volume and number of traded contracts. The market turnover has grown from Rs.2365 crore in 2000–2001 to Rs. 29248221.09 crore in 2010–2011.
