1 How derivative exchanges and markets are structured (p. 1-2) This chapter deals with the following questions: 1. How have derivatives e changes developed historically? 2. What are derivatives? 3. Why are most derivatives contracts currently traded standardized? 4. What functions do derivative e changes fulfill? 5. Who are the market participants at derivative e changes? 6. How are derivative e changes organized? 7. What other basic definitions are needed to understand derivative e - changes and markets? 8. "Bursa Mater et Magistra" – or: What is a sensible trading approach at the derivatives e change? 1.1 A history of derivative exchanges The financial derivative transactions we know today originated in commodity futures trading at derivative exchanges. These instruments were created as a safeguard against price risks. As early as two-thousand years B.C., the first forms of derivatives markets emerged in India. Faced with unertainty in regards to situations in different world regions and economic change, people transacted rudimentary futures contracts to lock in the prices of goods delivered by sea. From the Middle Ages we know of futures contracts in England and France. These were mainly commodity futures on goods to be delivered from Asia several months later. Again, the motive for these transactions was to lock in prices. Around 1630, the Netherlands experienced intense trading of options on tulip bulbs (later known as the Tulip Mania). Similar to the New Economy we faced at the turn of the century, it led to the forming of bubbles: due to excessive demand, tulip bulbs became increasingly expensive, resulting in an upward price spiral. When investors began to reap their profits and get rid of their investments, it instigated a selling surge causing the price of tulip bulbs to collapse. Most investors suffered losses of more than 90 percent. In Asia, a brisk trade in rice and silk was going on at the same time. The futures exchange there was called "Dojima Rice Market". Today, it is considered the very first futures market worldwide, located in Osaka, Japan. The triumphant rise of the Chicago Board of Trade as the "mother of all futures exchanges" set in after 1848 (it was founded on April 3 of that year). This was the first time in history that standardized futures contracts were listed and traded. In 1989, the Chicago Butter and Egg Board was established. Originally, only butter and eggs could be traded at this exchange. As the range of products widened over the years, the board was renamed Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in 1919. In 2007, CME announced its intention to acquire the Chicago Board of Trade (CBoT). The question that remains now concerns the causes in the rising popularity of futures contracts. The rapid increase of US-American public debt, along with the abolishment of fixed exchange rates (with contracts introduced on May 16, 1972 on the International Monetary Market IMM), resulted in a new economic environment accompanied by greater volatility. In response to the volatility concern, the first financial futures contract – an interest future – was introduced in Chicago in the 1970s. This marked the birth of financial futures trading. In 1972, the first foreign-currency futures on the seven major global currencies were traded. The first contracts on the S&,P 500 were introduced on the CME in 1982. In 1988, the German Futures Exchange DTB ("Deutsche Terminbörse") was founded, merging in 1998 with the Swiss SOFFEX, to consolidate into what today is known as Eurex. In 1992, the CME's GLOBEX Trading System (a computer-based trading platform) was put into service.
