We see success more than failures. NSE despite being a leading exchange in overall equity and derivatives segment had very few success in terms of newer categories of markets.There weekly options have become super-hit product and is also taking away attention from monthly options. Few more products that are successful in the west but aren’t working in India are – Debt markets,Volatility products,ETFs. A lot of investment and time is put by government machinery and private players too,but they haven’t meet the expected success.Commodities was a success but few bad intentions killed that space completely,and revival looks far.
