    On buying the shares, the ownership of the company will be transferred, but not happens with derivative markets.

    The percentage of profit/ loss is relatively less compared to derivative markets, hence reduces the risk.


    The investment required to buy the stocks is high, since the settlement happens immediately.

    If the analysis shows that the price will go down but if the stocks are not in hand, the opportunity can not be utilized in equity, wherein derivative markets provides contracts to benefit from the scenario.
