Understanding Markets, Derivatives, Risk-Management Controls SM (Cont.)

Day One: The program begins with an overview of how and why the trader takes positions, the products used, the risk-management techniques imbedded in the products, cash markets, and how derivatives evolved from them. Attendees have continually commented on the programs use of simple language and examples to clarify the most complicated of issues, providing a clear understanding of:

  • Links between cash markets and their derivative counterparts

  • Negotiable fixed-income instruments

  • Interest rate risk management

  • Interest Rate Swaps

  • Futures

  • Options

  • Forward Rate Agreements

  • Foreign Exchange Spot and Forward Markets


Day Two: Building on the previous day, the program moves on to issues involving controls, the types and nature of the risks associated with operating a trading room, the red flags signaling control flaws and potential danger, and the steps necessary to prevent a damaging event. An analysis of the more celebrated disasters is performed with particular attention to the warning signs that were evident early on. TRCI's experience as litigation support specialists in trading abuse cases confronts the listener with the reality and the potential dangers of being involved in such a situation.


Shifting gears, the group is then paired into teams in preparation for two intense trading sessions, the purpose of which is to vividly illustrate the issues that have been presented in the classroom. Complete with reporters asking questions, rumors, central bank action, auditors, news events and commercial customers, the trading sessions are packed with excitement and lessons. TRCI has found that presentations and workshops, while necessary and valuable, simply can't convey the issues in quite the same way as experiencing them. Attendees surveyed have all reported that the trading sessions served to drive home many of the lessons that were acknowledged and understood in the classroom, but simply not absorbed.


Day Three: With the experience and lessons of the first trading session under their belts, the final trading session takes place. Once complete, a luncheon takes place where a course review ties together the lessons discussed in the classroom to those experienced in the trading room. Individual and group performance is recognized and the course ends.
