Why should I learn Derivatives, especially, Options?

Research worldwide shows that 90% of the people in the stock markets don't really know what they are doing there. They mainly rely on Hope to make money and don't look at the essential education that can make them much better investors & traders. Of the 10% left, perhaps 10% of those really understand Derivatives (Futures & Options) completely. (I am talking about that "Inner Understanding", not just bookish knowledge). So you have perhaps 1% (probably less) of the market players who truly understand Options.

Now they are the Kings & Queens of Investing / Trading who have an inner feel of the market by virtue of their superior knowledge & understanding. And they are ones who make the big money, the big returns. How Big returns? Well, lets say 25 - 50% per month (yes, per month!) is a "Normal" returns for these folks.

Even if you don't trade Futures & Options, the inner knowledge you get by tracking them gives you a far superior understanding of the markets and allows you to have significantly better results in trading and investing in the spot (delivery) markets.

IF you wish to be in this elite group of people who have this superior knowledge, you MUST have an inner understanding of Options. Participating in this course will provide that big impetus to you in achieving your goal of superior knowledge and understanding. Welcome - to  the world of Derivatives.


  FAQ: What if I miss a class?

The Integrated Course Derivatives Course is a 4month course and it is quite possible that you may miss a class or two. And the question many have is "How will I make up if I miss a class?"

1.  Learning Options is a slow and steady process. In each class, there will revision of the previous session, presentation, discussion and Q&A by participants and a new concept that will be introduced gradually. Therefore, it should not be an issue to catch up.

2.  Further, the class will be divided into smaller teams of 2-3 people who will need to interact with each other for the homework and support each other in absorbing the concepts. Your team members are also there to support you to quickly learn and catch up anything that you may have missed.

3. The Course material will be quite detailed and will support you in revising and learning new concepts.

4. Most importantly the BIC F&O Group is an excellent support structure. They will be more than happy to support any of the Derivatives Course participants with any difficulties they may have during the course. 

The above aspects should sufficiently support you in quickly catching up with anything you may have missed.
