Nifty futures are index futures where the underlying is the S&P CNX Nifty index. In India, index futures trading commenced in 2000 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).
For Nifty futures contracts, the permitted lot size is 50, and in multiples of 50. Like other futures contracts, Nifty futures contracts also have a three-month trading cycle - the near-month, the next month and the far-month. After the expiry of the near-month contract, a new contract of a three-month duration would be introduced on the next trading day. Investors can trade in Nifty futures by having a margin amount in their account. This margin is a percentage of the contract value. It is usually about 10-12 per cent.
