BTIL Certificate Program on Commodity and Currency Markets
The currency and commodity markets are worth trillions and are the pivot of the financial markets, providing funding, investment opportunities and the conduit between all other financial markets.
In recent years, the importance of the money markets has become even greater as financial institutions focus more closely on the management and diversification of their sources of liquidity, apply greater discipline to their funding and examine the attractions of short-term investment and trading strategies.
Although the commodity market is one of the oldest markets in the world, it is still in a nascent phase in India compared to the stock and currency market. One of the reasons for this being the limited knowledge of the market. Globally one will find that a market exists for almost all the commodities known. In developed markets the volumes on the exchange-based commodity derivates markets are about five times more than that of the equity markets.
India, being an agro-based economy, has markets for most of the agro-based commodities. India is the largest consumer of gold in the world, which implies a huge market for the yellow metal and it has a huge spot market for all commodities.
This program provides a firm grounding in the instruments and activities of the international currency and commodity markets, sweeping away the confusion that can be created by the scale, speed and apparent diversity of the markets.
The program focuses on the current profile of the markets and offers up-to-date insights. It also emphasizes the integrated nature of the market - in particular, the opportunities this provides for arbitrage and hedging. This program would also help participants to understand qualitative & quantitative aspects of both the markets & their products and function along with the regulatory framework. There is a particular focus on the pricing, risk measurement principles & trading strategies which are globally applicable in these markets.
At the end of this program, participants will receive a certificate titled “BTIL Certificate Program on Commodity and Currency Markets.”
