Derivative Trading is becoming increasingly popular.  It allows investors to benefit significantly without large capital expenditures. Start your journey in Derivative Trading in this simplified course.

What will you learn?

To begin this course, students are taught about foreign exchange, or Forex, as they learn about what forex is, how it works and how exchange rates are calculated. Additionally, this course explores why companies use and engage in foreign exchange while identifying some of the major markets where this practice occurs.

Then, to further solidify the concept of forex for students in this program, this course discusses and differentiates between three types of forex markets: spot, futures, and forwards. To finish giving students a base understanding of forex, this program then continues by providing a glimpse into the realities of a forex trader and forex contracts.

Subsequently, learners are then introduced to the concept of Derivatives, as they are guided on a journey to understand what derivatives are, and why people use them - including some examples to help students grasp the concept firmly.

Furthermore, students will learn about the concepts of hedging and arbitrage in this chapter as well before returning back to the general subject of derivatives and being exposed to more about the different types of derivatives - such as futures and commodity derivatives.

Students will gather an appreciation for the concept of swaps, including details about particular types of swaps like currency swaps and interest rate swaps.
