Derivatives Listing

From Open Risk Manual

Definition

Derivatives Listing. A listing of an instrument on a derivatives exchange. The listing is a product of the individual exchange.

An exchange traded derivative is a product offered by the exchange, whereby the investor chooses to invest in that option and it then becomes a contract between them and the exchange. In this sense this is not the same as an Equity listing, and the facts about equities ot other exchange traded products listings do not apply to a derivatives listing. Update 24 Nov 2010: Later reviews (see notes elsewhere) don't support this description. In fact the contract is between investors (participants in the exchange).
