There is a range of potential trading activities with differing levels of risk and reward, and a market which can change very quickly. To make the right choices, you have to consider the market fundamentals, the influencing factors and trade the market for each different scenario. Therefore EDI included the Trading Game. The Trading Game will use simulated screen- based trading on the APX-ENDEX trading platform.

The game is designed to give people a chance to become a trader for a day. It varies in difficulty to suit the delegates understanding of the markets and trading knowledge. This helps people in different departments, who may have links to the trading desk, have a better understanding of how trading works. Also when you are already a trader, the game is of great benefit, because the game includes various difficulty levels.

It seems hard to predict how the gas trading market will develop and at what pace. However, we all face the changes towards a free market.

This training is the perfect opportunity for you to enhance your understanding of market developments and to strengthen your understanding of gas sales and purchasing strategies. Participants sharpen their vision on gas trading and increase their awareness of the consequences of a free market and the direct effects that gas trading may have on their companies. The programme contains a strategic gas trading game, intensive group discussions and lectures from international experts representing a broad range of companies.

The Gas Sales & Purchase Strategies in Liquid Markets (GSPS) Master Class is a 3-day training programme with experts from both the academic world and the gas sales and purchase business, such as APX Endex, Delft University of Technology, Gas Transport Services BV and Societé Générale. These experts will share with you their ideas on and experiences with physical gas trading on liquid markets in the Anglo-Saxon and the European continental area. They will also explore – with you – the way in which the market is, or may be, moving and in which markets it is best to buy and sell natural gas.
