Introduction to Bond Futures Trading 2013

This course introduces students to the practical and theoretical aspects of bond futures trading. As China has recently allowed domestic treasury futures trading, we can draw from the ample experience that the U.S. traders have been doing for decades. We will cover the fundamentals of the bond futures market, pricing as well as trading with bond futures contracts. We highlight that our speaker is a very renowned trader who has built a very successful career in the capital market. This is a rare opportunity to meet this senior “insider” from Wall Street.
