Implementing Volatility Trades in the Athens Derivatives Exchange
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how investors can benefit from volatility by constructing portfolios of options and futures based on the FTSE/ASE-20 ADEX listed derivatives. Furthermore, this paper provides an insight into the risks associated with such trades as well as addresses the question of whether such a trade can be profitable when transaction costs and margin requirements are taken into account. Its purpose is to serve as a practical guide to trading volatility using data from the Athens Derivative Exchange. The design of an infoormation systems prototype based on selected trades to measure the expected return on each given trade is also demonstrated. You can use Access or SQL to build the prototype.(In this case I used MSAccess)
