FX OPTIONS WORKSHOP
Novotel Clarke Quay, Singapore
March 18th – 21st 2013
About our Premier Master Class
Vanilla and exotic FX options trade in large volume in global over-the-counter markets. Because of this, there is a plethora of training courses on the subject, however, these courses focus almost exclusively on the financial engineering of products: building mathematical models to price options; and / or building option based structured products for franchise flows.
Courses of that type do not readily translate into generating trading profits. In contrast, this course uniquely and specifically focuses on generating trading profits from price-making and book-running, as it is this activity that underpins price discovery in reality. Price-making is not just essential for price-makers, it is also essential for price-takers such as salespeople, investors and treasurers, who want to know if prices are fair. Book-running is critical because, in order to be profitable, prices must be a function of hedging costs and the trader’s risk profile, which is fundamental in market reality and misunderstood and mis-applied in financial engineering models.
This course provides a roadmap for exploiting the gap between abstract financial engineering and how the market actually trades in practice, giving delegates new trading insights and risk management perspectives.
This course is specially structured in two Syllabuses
