De Giro Leveraged Products

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to figure out how the hell to use the 'Leveraged Products' category on De Giro.

    I don't think I'm a fool when it comes to do this: I know options, shorts, calls, warrants, etc. I even work in banking.

    I'm attracted to the Vontobel products, and I'm interested to see if I can use them. But I just can't figure out how the hell they work in De Giro. Let me explain:

    I click in to one, read the KID and it tells me the underlying asset. It tells me what the position on it is.

    But I don't know when I should buy it - the morning? and if I should sell in the evening. Or even what the trading hours are. In short I have no idea how to strategise with these.

    If you don't understand the product/security don't go near it

    But that's precisely why I'm asking

    So how good is your math and how many weeks have you got available to figure them out????

    This is not something that can be explained in a couple of posts. These products are designed by math, finance and computer specialists and they are designed to ensure that Vontobel wins pretty much every time from what I recall.

    So unless you have lots of time on your hands to figure this stuff out, stay well away from it.
