New: Crude Oil, Natural Gas & Carbon Emissions Options Volatility Trading Masterclass - Simulation Based - Virtual
This interactive options training programme will provide participants with the knowledge to trade volatility in crude oil, natural gas and emissions markets. Market data, pricing models and a unique volatility trading simulator (‘Volcube’) are used extensively throughout the course. Delivered live online by experienced options traders, the course is broken down into 4 half day sessions over 4 days (with a break day in the middle). For those wishing to attend who are completely new to the subjects of options and volatility, a selection of primer training material will be available on the ICE portal in advance of the course commencement. Emphasis is placed on practical skills, risk management, and understanding the nature of volatility in energy (and energy related) contracts. We will examine how to choose the correct strategy to suit market conditions and risk/reward requirements. Complex subjects such as delta-neutrality and gamma trading will be addressed in simple and practical terms, via current real-world examples.
Course participants will undertake live-market exercises on an options pricing model (ICE Connect and ICE Options Analytics). You will also be provided with access to our volatility trading simulator (Volcube) for a period of six weeks during and after the program. participants can improve their skills via self-assessment, feedback and a calibrated ‘Trader Performance Index’. The breakdown of performance metrics (available privately to each delegate) is a key element in the development process.
