Derivatives Advanced


This course builds on what we learned in the Derivatives Fundamentals course and takes your knowledge to new depths. With a focus on the valuation and risk management aspects of derivative positions, we explore both the trading and investment side of the derivatives market. We first discuss the pricing of forwards and futures through arbitrage concepts. Building on this knowledge, we delve into option models to uncover the value and risks of  option. We then use this expertise to analyze more sophisticated option strategies.
