Derivatives & Futures Workshop
Over the last couple of years the markets have introduced many new vehicles for short term traders to invest their money in. These instruments allow the man on the street to have access to vehicles previously only traded by institutions and large portfolio managers. This type of investment allows the private investor to determine his/her own gearing that is acceptable to the investor’s own personal risk profile, needless to say the rewards being much greater than normal equity investment’s.
The time span, in most instances, is also much shorter allowing the investor to let his/her money work at a much faster pace. It is a whole new world out there with highly geared instruments where you the private investor, with the necessary knowledge, can gain control over your short term portfolio.
Always taking pride in being the leaders in investor education and proud to present a workshop covering all the different derivative instruments available, some being brand new to the private investor and others that have been around for a while.
The course will cover the following instruments:
- Agricultural Futures
- Futures on Commodities
- Individual Equity Futures
- Spread Trading
- Yield X
The ins and outs of each of these instruments will be covered extensively, studying the following:
- How the instrument was put together.
- The functionality behind trading the instrument.
- The risk factors involved.
- How the instruments gearing is structured.
- The rules and regulations regarding trading in these instruments.
- Money management when trading shorter periods.
Because these instruments are traded on three different markets (JSE, Safex, Besa) some involving more than one market at a time and is highly geared thus increasing the risk factor, it is important to first obtain the necessary knowledge before attempting to trade these derivative instruments successfully.
A comprehensive set of notes is included with the course for your perusal before attending the seminar and also to use as a reference should you need to brush up on some of the information.

- Individual Equity Futures- will be covered in detail during the course. Investors who wish to maximize their returns should use IEF’s, which prove to be the most effective cost efficient mechanism to leverage either trading portfolios or hedge investment portfolios
- Simulation whilst Attending the Course
As techniques are learnt so each trader will apply them in practice on a live simulation. This is done to facilitate the individual needs of each trader according to his/her own objectives.
- 4 Week Mentorship …Focused on Individual Equity Futures!!!
The 4 Week Mentorship side of the course is achieved by issuing each delegate with an account matching his/her financial preference. The delegate then trades from this fictitious account through the simulation department.
All transactions are recorded and on request the delegate will receive broker’s notes, portfolio reports and/or transaction summary reports. The obvious benefits of simulated trading are that no money is at risk during the “learning curve ”.
- Technical Indicators
Different Indicators are discussed with practical exercises so that maximum understanding is achieved. The difference between Trending, Trading, Leading and Lagging indicators is discussed. Indicators are also applied to live trading strategies for those who would like to maximize their returns in a geared, short-term strategy.
- Trading Plan
Successful trading revolves around discipline and having a simple strategy that is accurate most of the time. Strategies are individual and based on the traders’ needs and expectations. A lot of time is dedicated to this.
- Correct Trading Mistakes
This workshop is designed to run during the week so that traders experience real examples. Hindsight is often very easy with Technical Analysis and needs to be eliminated during this workshop.
- Better Time Allocation
Many traders are of the opinion that short-term trading requires an 8-hour day glued to the trading screens.
This is not the case, depending on your objectives and expectations. Very often it is better to keep a position for a couple of days .
