Change of Assessment Year for CFP Examination

Posted by Prashant Shah on December 24, 2011

As per the latest circular of FPSB the assessment year is changing to AY 2012-13 from 24th of Jan, 2012.

For the candidates of Tax planning and AFP this change is critical because this time the changes have taken place a week earlier.

As I said earlier, changes in smaller savings are also taking place on the same date.

See the circular: http://www.fpsb.co.in/Upload/Notifications/CHANGE%20OF%20ASSESSMENT%20YEAR%2012-13.pdf

Relevance of futures market:

  • Quick and low cost transactions
  • Price discovery function (fair idea of future demand and supply)
  • Advantage to informed individuals (Impart efficiency to the price)
  • Hedging advantage

 Futures trading

Advantages Disadvantages
1. Leverage : Smaller cash outlay i.e. Only margin amount 1. Risk : Trading loss more than initialinvestment
2. Ease of Short Selling: It is possible to sell futures without possessing the underlying 2. No stockholder privileges : No voting rights and no rights to dividends

Payoff for a buyer of Nifty futures:

The investor bought futures when the index was at 2220. If the index goes up, his futures position starts making profit. If the index falls, his futures position starts showing losses.

Payoff for a seller of Nifty futures:
