EXcoin China Market Option Trading Investment Specialist (OTIS) Admission Guide

release time:2019-06-15

(1) Background

Option trading is an indispensable derivative in the global market. On February 9, 2015, China launched its first option trading product, 50ETF, a major breakthrough. With the increasing demand for derivatives, and option trading for individual stocks taking place, the option market foresees a prosperous growth. Option trading promotes the healthy development of spot market and tangible economy. Over the past two years, stock market has undergone volatile changes. A mature option market can catalyze market economy, and option derivative will be a crucial component in the future.

Since 2018, China’s domestic option market experiences tremendous growth. On March 31 and April 19, 2018, the option trading of soybean meal and white sugar options were listed, marking the debut of domestic derivative market. However, in contrast with the mature capital markets overseas, China is still seeing a big gap. For instance, in United States, Chicago Mercantile Exchange Group by itself has more than 2,000 future or option products, covering more than 200 active varieties. In addition to commodities, stock market options products have also been brought to the agenda. The China SSE 50 ETF option was officially listed for trading in February 2015. As of December 1, the end-of-the-day position of the SSE 50 ETF option was about 1.87 million, and the nominal market value about 53.2 billion yuan. At present, the total market capitalization of Shanghai and Shenzhen stock markets approaches 57 trillion yuan, of which, only 0.09% is accounted for by stock option trading, a very disproportionate size compared to the total A-share spot market. After the opening of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, A-share institutional investors have been increasing in number, and the demand for risk management becomes increasingly urgent.

In the multi-level capital markets, China's derivative futures market has entered a new stage of growth, and option investment plays an important role in risk management. Driven by regulatory authorities, the development of option products in both commodity and stock markets will enter an accelerating stage.

However, out of the many capable investment professionals, few are recognized by authorities. This affected their career advancement. Because Chinese option market developed relatively late, there is an urgent need to equip investors with practical knowledge and competency. To answer the call of market, and cultivate more experts in option trading, Beijing Zhongjinyu Investment Consulting Co., Ltd established the “Option Trading Investment Specialist Project Office” under the guidance of China Staff Education and Vocational Training Association of the Chinese Ministry of Social Affairs, and starting April 2018, it set forth the Option Trading Investment Specialist (OTIS) exam certification requirement.
