Forwards & Futures – Introduction, Pricing & Trading


This e-training programme comprises 3 topics/tutorials.  Answer all quiz questions at the end of each tutorial in order to complete the training.

A) Forwards & Futures – An Introduction
(Estimated Completion Time: 60 Minutes)

In this tutorial you learn about the most basic derivative building block – the forward transaction – which can take the form of OTC forwards or and exchange-traded futures contracts. The similarities and the differences between these two product types are examined. You will discover how it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between the two. Finally the trends in the markets for both of these derivatives are discussed.

B) Forwards & Futures – Pricing
(Estimated Completion Time: 75 Minutes)

At the heart of derivative pricing lies the concept of a forward price. Forward markets exist for nearly all financial, and many non-financial, assets. This tutorial shows how a ‘fair’, but essentially unique, forward price can be calculated for most investment assets. It also examines how the assumptions differ when dealing with the forward prices of consumption assets rather than investment assets.

C) Forwards & Futures – Trading
(Estimated Completion Time: 75 Minutes)

The practice of hedging is the foundation of futures and forward markets, but in this tutorial we examine the various non-hedging trading strategies used by practitioners. Futures contracts have always been popular with traders who have no particular hedging interests. Close attention in this tutorial is paid in particular to bond and money market futures trading strategies, such as bond basis trading, as these are probably the most widespread.
