As part of our Flex Series, this 2 hour live instructor led virtual course provides an introduction to what options are, why they would be used, the common terminology and the key dimensions of option value. This is the third in a series of three courses that makes up our 'Introduction to Futures & Options' pathway. The other two modules in the series are:
- Introduction to Futures & the Clearing Process
- Introduction to Trading & Hedging with Futures
On completion of all three sections, you can take an assessment towards pathway Certification.
