Course description

Options are a growing part of energy hedging and speculating.  Understanding how they work allows any trader to make better choices in using them. Once you have a thorough understanding of the basic elements of options, you can learn how to take advantage of fast-changing markets to get the most out of your option positions with this course. Delegates learn how to apply complex combinations of calls and puts to hedge specific risks and take advantage of market expectations.

This two-day workshop not only extends your understanding of option dynamics, but also allows you to practice these skills through our unique trading simulations. In these simulations you will master directional and market-neutral trading strategies, as well as the application of complex strategies. You will also learn to match specific risk exposures and market expectations with complex strategies.
