The second “Train-the-trainer” Program kick-started on 21 April and completed on 27 April. This series of webinars gives a comprehensive introduction of the Singapore capital market, focusing in particular on the listed securities and derivatives market and explaining the key instruments used in the markets. In the upcoming sessions, we look at ETFs, Structured Warrants and Stocks and how these are used for investment and trading. This webinar also provides an overview of products from these asset classes listed on the Singapore Exchange, the economic significance of these products as well as their key drivers and statistics.

Yong Chin Hiong
Yong Chin Hiong started trading structured warrants when he was a Remisier at Phillip Securities. Through his 8 years of trading and experience in the volatile market for index warrants, he developed a systematic trading method called Low Risk Matrix Model (LRMM). Rather than looking for one big trade, the LRMM looks for small profits throughout the day and focuses on Risk Management, which never lets losses accumulate. And with this model, he eventually set up a team of proprietary traders that focus on structured warrants scalping using LRMM with much success. Apart from running his proprietary trading desk, Chin Hiong is also currently conducting a structured warrants trading course together with SGX Academy and provides a live virtual trading environment for his course participants at his office.
