|TTC 102||Equity and Index Options Trading||Mr Neil Mckenzie||Confirmed on Booking|
The objective of the Equity and Index Options Programme is to provide theoretical knowledge and a practical understanding of exchange traded options. The course offers a mix of classroom based instruction, case study and practical trading exercises where students will trade on a simulated market using Sol-3 software in a trading lab/trading room environment.
Participants will be expected to have a basic understanding of options, although a review of basic options terminology will be provided. The course does not delve into the mathematics behind various options pricing models. Participants will leave the course having achieved a thorough understanding of option Greeks, the importance of Volatility and Skew, and various options trading strategies. During the Module, attendees will be able to apply the knowledge gained in the previous sessions and get a sense of how options trade in an electronic trading environment.
Participants will build their own volatility and skew curves so as to obtain theoretical values from which they will be better able to determine entry and exit points for various options strategies that they may wish to implement based upon their own views on direction and volatility.
Through the risk management software embedded in Sol3, students will also be able to see how risk/reward profiles change under dynamic market conditions. Attendees will be taken through a rigorous Programme of theoretical and practical education in Energy Futures trading and Energy markets.
