What is equity?

When you buy an equity share of a company, you are buying into the ownership in the business. As an equity investor, you are a partial owner of a company. When the new shares are issued by the company to the investors directly,it is called as "primary market", where the transaction happens directly between the company and the investor.

The investors, who have bought the shares from the primary market, cannot sell back the shares to the company whose shares they are holding. In such casethey will have to look for a suitable buyer to sell the shares of the holding company. A virtual market place is created for the benefit of such buyers and sellers called as "Stock Exchanges", where equity shares are bought and sold. The stock exchanges are called as "Secondary Markets"

The main difference between derivatives and equity is that equity derives its value on market conditions such as demand and supply and company related, economic, political, or other events. Derivatives derive their value from other financial instruments such as bonds, commodities, currencies, etc.
