In week three Graham O’ Brien, Senior Manager of Equity Derivatives for the ASX, joined the panel to outline some fundamentals of trading options on the ASX before taking a dive into the most popular strategies being traded and whether they are long or short volatility. He also shared some of his insights around developments in the options market as well as in the ASX Options Trading Game, which is now open. Graham’s explanations and rationales behind covered calls and bought/sold puts and calls are perfect for those of you who are testing your mettle on the Options Trading Game.

For week four of the Trading 360 Summit we’ll be joined by Rob Risk, from Susquehanna International Group, who will discuss the factors that impact pricing for market makers from the ASX perspective, high volatility events and spread trading.

This session is the best way to hear directly from the exchange and a market maker – where you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions on options pricing and the factors that may impact the fills you get on your trades.
