From then on volumes of contracts traded on exchanges, which now numbered hundreds and were worldwide, grew at a fantastic rate. By the end of 2001 volumes were over 3 billion and rising. It is important to recognize that derivatives are not just traded on exchanges. In fact prior to 1848 ‘derivatives’ were traded in the form of forward contracts and options. They were deals made between two parties and were transacted off-exchange, in other words there were no rules or regulations governing the deal and the terms were simply negotiated to suit both parties.

Shares, like bonds, are first issued in the primary market and subsequently traded in the secondary market. In terms of the primary market, the company will seek a listing on a stock exchange, publish a prospectus setting out the aims and expectations of the business and the terms for subscribing for the shares and, if all goes well, will receive sufficient applications for the shares to raise the capital they need. Once completed the issued shares can then be traded on the exchange. In reality it is not quite so simple.

What it did do was generate enormous interest and demand in the shares when they started trading in the secondary markets as the unsuccessful applicants tried to purchase additional shares for their portfolios. In some cases large and small applications may, in the case of an oversubscription, simply go into a ballot to be drawn until the offered amount is completed and will therefore be successful or unsuccessful. In some cases an IPO is cancelled when the market conditions make it unlikely to be successful and the cost of underwriting the offer is too prohibitive.
