This webinar offers an introduction to the futures market and mini SXM futures contracts. It covers the main contract specifications including its multiplier, the minimum price fluctuations, trading hours, expiration months and settlement procedure. You will also learn how to use the SXM to trade a directional view on the overall market, to protect your portfolio against adverse movements in the market and to benefit from arbitrage opportunities.
This webinar will focus on two advanced options strategies: butterfly and condor. You will learn how and when these strategies should be established, when you can expect a profit or loss, and the role of volatility, a key factor in determining the success of these strategies.
This webinar will cover adjustments to the terms of options contracts as a result of corporate actions (e.g., a stock split, a special cash dividend or a merger, acquisition or corporate reorganization). You will learn the impact of these changes on the stock price, the strike price, the contract size and the option premium.
