Unit One examines physical trading economics in depth. Delegates will learn how to negotiate and cost deals, calculate profitability, charter a ship and examine the contractual aspects of trading.

Those attending Unit Two will build a sound understanding of the markets, gain practical experience in selecting and using a variety of risk management instruments, and learn strategies for their use in hedging and price management. This course will also cover the value of optionality, management control, and risk measures. As part of a trading team, delegates will identify and manage the price risks of their trading book. They will trade the full range of derivative markets, most of them in real-time, using prevailing market prices from Reuters, Platts, and Petroleum Argus.
