This two-day course provides a practical introduction to options trading. Our specialist tutor has decades of options trading experience and this will enable students to gain the maximum benefit from the academic and practical sessions.

The course provides students with an understanding of the derivatives markets (futures and options) and how they are traded. It also explains the construction and applications of payoff diagrams, and introduces a number of options trading strategies.

Day 1: Introduction to the basics of options (puts, calls, spreads, straddles and strangles), using practical examples to illustrate academic concepts.

Day 2: Practical trading sessions will enable delegates to apply what they have learnt to create options trading strategies, with help and guidance from the tutor. Day 1 academic themes will also be developed further, introducing the Greeks and further options trading strategies.

Course Delivery: This course takes place at our central London campus (subject to lock-down restrictions). Students will have access to an options trading platform to support their learning, and will actively participate in trading sessions to gain an understanding of how what they have learnt is applicable in real-life scenarios. A 2-week online course is currently under development, and is due for launch in September 2020.

By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the concepts of options trading
  • Recognise different option payoff profiles
  • Develop options trading strategies in real-time markets
