Futures are the contract that one enter with another party to buy or sell the specified shares at agreed rate on a agreed date.

For example, you Enter a contract with x to sale 1000 shares of Infosys on next month same date at a price of 2000 per share.

This is a future contract, if the price of shares on that date are less than 2000 you make the profit and if the price is more on that then you make loss.

Suppose price on the date of execution of contract is RS. 1750 per share, you can buy shares at 1750 and sale at 2000 to X. You make a profit of 250 for each share.

Most of the future contracts are placed at National Stock Exchange.
