Exchange Trading & Regulatory Fundamentals for Electronic Traders

an FIA Training course

This course covers a broad range of topics critical to traders accessing the listed derivatives markets and those who oversee them.

Topics covered include trader identification, contract specifications, order types, pre-trade risk controls, recordkeeping requirements, and how the central limit order book works. It also covers exchange rules most likely to impact traders such as pre-execution communications, cross trades, self-match trades, test trades, position limits and order-to-trade ratios. The final section discusses certain types of transactions that are permitted outside the central limit order book including exchange-for-related positions (EFRPs) and block trades. This course may help meet Direct Electronic Access (DEA) training requirements in certain jurisdictions. By the end of this course you will have a better understanding of:
