Derivatives market

The derivatives market for standardized stock options is a market where parties can issue and then buy, call or put options on a secondary market. Non-standardized derivatives instruments, so called naked warrants issued directly by financial institutions to a secondary market, also exist.

A derivative is also a commonly used term for an Interest Rate Swap.
