What are derivatives?

Derivatives are a common term for all types of securities that depend on the development of another security, for example an index, a share or a commodity. The most common derivatives are purchase and sales options, as well as futures. Derivatives can be used for positioning for either price increases or declines in a market, often as a hedge against large price fluctuations for dependencies on raw materials.

At DNB Markets, we offer derivatives trading for professionals.

Trading derivatives requires special conditions

In DNB Markets, we do not allow retail customers to trade in derivatives. This is due to both complexity and risk.

If you want to trade derivatives such as options, warrants, forwards or futures, you must fill in a declaration form to become classified as a professional (MiFID).

If you are classified as a professional or as a corporate customer, you also need an LEI number to trade derivatives.

Oil rig

As a private individual, you can invest in commodities through exchange traded funds (ETFs). These are sold in our equity trading service.

Can non-professionals invest in commodities in any way?

As a retail customer, you cannot trade in derivatives, but you can use one of the many Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) we offer in our online equity trading. Here you’ll find both geared and ungeared ETFs.* If you have faith in either a rise or a decline in the price of a raw material and want to take a position, these are good options.

Depending on which products you choose, the risk can be very high. In DNB Markets, we assume no responsibility, either for direct or indirect losses, as a result of the content of this website being the basis for investment decisions.
