Watch the introduction video to IFF's Mastering Foreign Exchange and Money Markets.
Petros Geroulanos, the course director, was a former trader in spot, forwards and currency options. He spent most of his career in financial markets on different trading desks.
The course is structured over two days. On the first day you will cover the basics, the maths and the market conventions. This is followed by looking at the money markets, where you will learn about how they develop and how central banks manage liquidity. The course then covers the current market rates and ends the first day by covering spot FX. On the second day, you will look at the basic derivative instruments, forward forwards, FX swaps, options, option pricing, how the market moves and how we trade foreign exchange.
The course pays particular attention tor pricing, risk management and trading.
Currently, the money markets are anticipating an interest rate rise and are guessing when this is likely to happen. This will have a major impact on all short term deposits. In the currency markets, managing and hedging risks is becoming increasingly important, even for those who weren't affected in the past.
On the course you will be doing hands on calculations and not using any external systems. You will use current data so that numbers can be verified in the market. You will interpret how the market moves and how to trade based on the current market conditions. Finally, the course moves on to cover how static trading moves into dynamic trading and the strategies needed to do so.
The course will give you detailed building blocks of each instrument and get a complete overview on a general and specific level.
