Lecture Introduction:

SSE 50 Index ETF Option ("50ETF Option") is currently the only exchange traded option in China.  It was introduced in February 2015 by the Shanghai Stock Exchange.  Since then, China's A-share market has gone through several highly volatile periods before gradually settling down over the last six months.  Mr. Yang will discuss various 50ETF option trading opportunities emerged throughout this eventful period and share his thoughts on the behavioral, institutional and regulatory reasons that caused market inefficiencies.
