STA Monthly Meeting – October 2013
Richard’s talk will give an introduction to hedge ratio analysis for index options and futures with charts detailing the subsequent dynamic delta hedging and how it affects the leading benchmark indices.
Richard started his career in the City in 1983 gaining a lot of knowledge and experience through very turbulent and evolutionary economic times. In the early days he was one of the main participants in the traditional option market, and the then nascent traded option market going on to become one of the principal LIFFE traders in index options. In 2002 Richard left the City and founded a technical and trading system development company and has since gone on to hold several other directorships.

The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats. To overcome this challenge and construct sustainable, scalable and reproducible strategies in a quantitative manner, the Smart Money Framework was developed by the quants in the 1960s. With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
