Atlantic Trading accelerates training with Volcube
v2.5 release introducing moving spot
The team at Atlantic Trading are seeing some significant benefits from Volcube. Rohan Wilson, Volatility Trader and Training Manager said,
“Volcube is a win for everyone involved. It enables our senior traders to focus on trading, and our trainees to accelerate their learning. It also embeds risk management principles into the trainees’ mindset much earlier, and takes traditional mock trading techniques to the next level”. Learn more about how they are using Volcube here.
CEO Simon Gleadall said, “The option to use a tradable, moving underlying brings unprecedented training opportunities. Now your mock trading sessions can teach the skills of manually hedging deltas, gamma scalping and the handling of live risk orders. Volcube v2.5 helps trainers escape the traditional limitations of a fixed spot price, as and when their trainees have mastered trading volatility against a static underlying”.
