    Individual Assignment – P ART  II
    D ERIVATIVE  T RADING  S IMULATION
    Due: Friday, March 10 th , 2017
    FIN 4315 features a derivative trading simulation, which provides experiential learning of
    derivatives trading process and practical applications of different theories, tools, and techniques
    of financial derivatives. Individual research assignment Part II is based on your original
    analyses, strategies, findings, and learning outcomes of this simulation. This assignment will
    provide experiential learning and applications of derivatives.
    Each student will participate in a derivative trading simulation game using the StockTrak
    simulation. The main learning objectives of derivative trading simulation include the following
    experiential learning opportunities: (i) design, implement, and practice derivative trading
    strategies with real-time financial market data and information; (ii) acquire new knowledge in
    derivatives markets and apply derivatives theories, tools, and techniques covered in this course;
    and (iii) financial decision making and skills in trading and applying derivatives.
    This assignment and simulation will provide experiential learning and applications of
    derivatives to achieve the following learning outcomes and objectives (see course syllabus): 1.
    Derivatives Theories and Applications; 2. Financial Decision Making and Skills; 3. Creating,
    Capturing and Reinforcing Important Values Using Derivatives; and 4. S.T.E.M. Learning
    Outcomes.
    A. INSTRUCTIONS ON THE REPORT AND PRESENTATION:
    Prepare a 4-page minimum (1½-spaced paragraphs) report based on the derivative trading
    simulation with your original analyses, trading strategies, findings, and applications of
    theories and tools. Your discussions should be based on your original insights, your own
    research findings, and your creative strategies based on derivatives theories and tools that are
    covered in this course. Your report should be organized with the following interrelated steps:
    (I) Statement of Objectives
    (II) Investment Plan and Derivatives Portfolio
    (III) Derivatives Trading Strategies and Analyses
    (IV) Performance Evaluation
    (V) Conclusion and Learning Outcomes
    Your report should contain a systematic (step-by-step) approach to derivatives trading and
    analyses, address ALL of the following steps, and answer ALL of the following questions:
    4
    Step (1) Statement of Objectives
    ?  State your objectives of derivatives trading and investment. Discuss your investment
    plan to achieve these objectives.
    ?  State clearly all assumptions, sources of information, your own investment
    philosophy, original insights, constraints, and proposed trading strategies.
    Step (2) Investment Plan and Derivatives Portfolio
    ?  Design and construct your portfolios of derivatives and other investments. Outline
    the steps and strategies of your derivatives trading. In order to achieve your
    investment objectives in Step (1), what investments and derivatives trading
    strategies did you propose, apply, and implement in the simulation? Importantly,
    apply derivatives theories and tools to support your investments and trading
    strategies.
    ?  Discuss any unique features of your derivatives trading strategies and overall
    investment portfolio. Be original, specific, rigorous, and creative.
    ?  Importantly, provide theoretical arguments and analytical framework that support
    your derivatives trading strategies and investment portfolio.
    ?  Important Instruction #1: In the StockTrak simulation game, your portfolios should
    contain different types of instruments, including futures (on different underlying
    assets), options (on different underlying assets), options on futures, and others such as
    equities, indices, ETFs, commodities, bonds, etc. Important Note: Derivatives
    (futures and options) should be the primary trading strategies in your portfolio.
    In the StockTrak simulation game, you can trade assets from different global financial
    markets, futures (on different underlying assets), options (on different underlying
    assets), futures on options, equities, indices (ETFs), commodities, interest rates, VIX,
    among others. 1
    ?  Important Instruction #2: During the simulation game this quarter, you should have
    performed at least 20 different trades to experiment and demonstrate different trading
    strategies.
    ?  Important Instruction #3: Your trading strategies should be backed by theoretical
    concepts, data, analyses, and analytical tools learned from this course.
    1 For example, you may also include trading (long/short) positions in equities and indices (ETFs) in
    your portfolio, but make sure that your trading positions in the spot markets should be related to the
    derivatives counterparts. For example, you may use information obtained from derivatives markets to
    formulate trading positions in the spot markets.
    5
    Step (3) Derivatives Trading Strategies and Analyses
    Construct and implement derivatives trading strategies based on your original insights, your
    own analyses, and your applications of theories and concepts. Your report should address the
    following questions and steps:
    ? ?  (i) Demonstrate at least 10 different types of futures or options trading strategies;
    examples of derivative trading strategies include (but are not limited to) the following:
    long futures, short futures, long call, long put, bull spread, bear spread, straddle,
    strangle, butterfly spread, covered call, covered put, etc. Also, the underlying assets of
    derivative contracts may include stocks, indices, VIX, commodities, interest rates,
    currencies, among others.
    ? ?  (ii) Your derivatives trading strategies should be supported by quantitative analyses,
    finance theories, and derivatives models (e.g., cost-of-carry models for futures, option
    pricing models for options, implied volatilities, dynamic hedging (Greek Letters), etc.).
    ? ?  (iii) Provide real data, detailed quantitative analyses, and derivatives models (e.g.,
    cost-of-carry models for futures, option pricing models for options, implied volatilities,
    dynamic hedging (Greek Letters), etc.) to support your derivatives trading strategies.
    Your report should include applications of option pricing models (such as the binomial
    option pricing models or the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model), implied
    volatility model, etc. Important Note: Provide explicit discussions of all of your
    assumptions as clear as possible.
    ? ?  (iv) Explain the strategic timing of your trading strategies. Your trading strategies
    should incorporate your knowledge and findings of recent news/events/developments
    in the U.S. and global financial markets and institutions. Considerations include the
    following: recent events/news/developments in various markets such as equities, oil,
    commodities, emerging derivatives markets, financial innovations, changes in financial
    market regulations, among others.
    Step (4) Performance Evaluation
    Present critical performance evaluations of your trading strategies and outcomes. Your report
    should address the following questions and steps:
    ?  (i) Provide critical performance evaluations of: (a) the trading outcomes of your
    derivatives trades and strategies; and (b) the overall performance of your investment
    and derivatives portfolio. Assess and evaluate the outcomes of your trading strategies.
    ?  (ii) Provide summary tables that contain important information and statistics of: (a)
    your trading positions; (b) trading outcomes and performance (including
    profits/losses from trading futures/options and profits from exercising options (if
    any)); and (c) overall performance of your portfolios (such as overall profits/losses,
    FIN 4315 D ERIVATIVES  M ARKETS 代寫
     
    rate of returns, Sharpe ratio, alpha, etc.). Important Note: It is important to show
    detailed calculations and results of profits from trading or exercising options.
    ?  (iii) Evaluate the effectiveness of your investment and trading strategies in the
    simulation. Highlight your “3 best” (most effective) trades and your “3 worst” (most
    unsuccessful) trades during the simulation. Discuss whether your trading strategies
    can generate (if any) superior performance or arbitrage opportunity. Discuss whether
    your strategies and outcomes are consistent with any derivatives theories / models.
    Step (5) Conclusion and Learning Outcomes
    Provide a concluding section, which summarizes your new insights, original findings, and
    learning outcomes of this project. In the concluding section, discuss all of the following:
    ?  (i) Key findings of your report; and
    ?  (ii) Major lessons and learning outcomes from this simulation game (such as new
    ideas, concepts, implications, and other important lessons from this derivatives
    trading simulation) and important skills you have acquired from this assignment
    and simulation.
    Your conclusion should cover all of the following: What are the major learning outcomes and
    lessons from this derivative trading simulation? How do you incorporate your new knowledge
    of finance and derivatives into your trading strategies? Do you become a better investor? Do
    the theories apply well to your simulation? What other factors should be considered in real
    world derivatives trading and investment management?

    Checklist and Important Instructions: Options Trading Simulation
    (I) The followings provide useful research materials for your derivatives trading simulation -
    see: (http://www.cboe.com/);(http://www.cboe.com/data/AnnualMarketStatistics.aspx)
    (II) Make sure that you keep regular records all of your trading positions in your portfolio
    (important suggestion: keep regular records of all your trading positions at least once a week).
    (III) Important information and instructions regarding option trading in simulation: note that
    there are two possibilities to make profits: Profits from option trading OR Profits from
    option exercising (BUT NOT BOTH). You may choose either:
    OPTION (1) Profits from trading options “before expiration”. In this simulation, you can
    create profits from trading (buying/selling) options. Before expiration of the option contracts,
    you may make profits from selling existing option contracts that you already had.
    OR
    OPTION (2) Profits from options “at expiration”. Alternatively, you can hold your option
    contracts until expiration; the StockTrak simulation system will settle the contracts in cash. 2
    OR
    OPTION (3) Profits from early exercising options “before expiration”. You can create
    profits from early exercise of options. In this case, you will need to take the following steps:
    ? First, contact StockTrak using the form at the bottom of the “FAQ” page with your
    username, the option code and number of contracts you would like exercised (note that
    position limit rules and buying power limitations come into play when exercising
    options). See http://content.stocktrak.com/student-faq-technical-support/ and choose “Q:
    HOW DO I EXERCISE OPTIONS?”
    ? Second, to help your decision on early exercise of options, you will need to compute any
    profits of early exercising options by yourself. To calculate any profits from early
    exercising options, you can use the Excel model provided in Blackboard. 3
    ? Third, when exercising any options in your portfolio before expiration (if you decide to
    have “early exercise” of options as in OPTION (3) above), please send me an email
    reminder to (mba.finance.sfung@gmail.com), which provides a record of the date/time
    and other information related to your option exercise. The information should include:
    ? (A) The date/time of option exercise;
    ? (B) The information of option contracts you exercised (e.g., options on “SPY”
    with information of the strike price, maturity date, etc.);
    ? (C) The number of contracts in your trading transaction (you can obtain this
    information from your trading record in StockTrak);
    ? (D) Estimated profits from early exercising the options (important note: use the
    Excel model at Blackboard to calculate profits from option exercise).
    ? (E) Any other relevant information related to your option exercising strategy.
    You should send me this email (“notice of early exercise of options”) as soon as you has
    decided to exercise the options before expiration.
    2 If you have an in-the-money option at expiration, your profitable option contracts will be
    automatically closed out at expiration. This is similar to a procedure in practice known as “exercise by
    exception”.
    3 As mentioned, there are two possibilities to make profits: Profits from option trading (OPTION
    (1)) OR Profits from option exercising (OPTION (2) (BUT NOT BOTH OPTIONS) – e.g., if you
    choose OPTION (2) to have early exercise of an option contract, you should not include any additional
    profits from trading (selling) the same option contract (as in OPTION (1)) after exercising the option.

    explicit spreadsheet analyses) should be explicitly included in your report.
    ? ? References and appendices that include additional data and information should be
    included in your report.
    D. Important Note and Evaluation Criteria:
    All analyses and discussions must be original, well-organized, well-written, and integrated
    with analytical frameworks and summary tables/figures of results. Explain all your
    assumptions, calculations, and ideas as clear as possible. Construct and simulate derivatives
    trading strategies based on your original insights and understanding of derivatives markets.
    Apply different trading strategies and make sure your portfolio includes trading positions in
    futures, options, equities, and other investment assets. Original findings, rigorous analyses,
    critical thinking, innovative methods, and insightful discussions are highly valued. Summary
    tables of statistics, financial-quantitative analyses and qualitative discussions should be
    included in your report.
    Your individual research assignment will be critically evaluated based on: (I)
    Originality, rigor, and completeness of your original analyses and original findings; (II)
    Theoretical applications, qualitative insights, practical implications, and creativity of
    your trading strategies; (III) In-depth understanding of the derivatives markets, insights
    of the important concepts and frameworks of derivatives, and incorporations of the
    recent trends and developments in the derivatives markets; and (IV) Your learning
