Canada Trading and Investing Summit 2012. Trump International, April 5, 2012, Toronto, ON


 

Join Markets Media on Thursday June 14th at the W Chicago City Center for our second annual Chicago Trading: The Professionals; bringing together traders from all corners of Chicago finance to talk shop under one roof.

 

The conference features a high-profile keynote address followed by two interactive panel sessions that will drill down into the topics of both floor and upstairs trading and derivatives. After the formal content, there will be a two-hour networking and cocktail reception — always a highlight of Markets Media events.

KEY TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Examining the decline in equity volumes and concurrent rise in options volumes
  • Block trading in options: sourcing liquidity and best price
  • Demand for weeklys and the outlook for daily options contracts
  • Which asset class is best when trading single names?
  • Having the front three months available to trade in all options issue-able equities
