Being one of the biggest markets in the world representing one-sixth of global economy, Europe offers many opportunities to investors.
Join us for this seminar in which we bring you closer to Europe; hear from our experts about the European markets, the sources of risks and opportunities, and key indices and indicators that one can leverage in making investment and trading decisions.
This seminar will consist of two presentations:
1. From Pandemic’s Pox to Pandora’s Box – Navigating the Unknown Unknowns
Qontigo will focus on an analysis of the key drivers of equity returns year-to-date. By decomposing the sources of risk that affected markets in the previous two quarters, Qontigo present insights on their impact on investor portfolios, and discuss ways investors can use this information in their investment process. They will also use Qontigo’s ROOF Scores to provide an update on the state of investor sentiment going into the next quarter and assess the likelihood of near-term market movements.
2. Why and How to View Europe as a Core Part of Your Global Strategy
The Eurozone remains the world’s second largest developed market, behind only the US and ahead of Japan, with a weight in the FTSE Global All-Cap Index still 3x that of China. The continent’s economic diversity, low, but rising interest rates, and exposure to world events are just some of the reasons European derivatives markets have seen increased interest from foreign investors in 2022. In this informative presentation, experienced trader Tariq Dennison explains how he looks at opportunities in Europe, starting with important information from Europe’s bond markets, followed by a deeper look into two of the most liquid equity index benchmarks: the EURO STOXX 50 and the DAX 40. Finally, Tariq shows practical strategies you can implement in your Interactive Brokers account using futures and options, including micro-sized futures.
