Maybe in March 2018.

Anyone knows if i have to restudy the last part of the FM exam (before the changes), for the new MFE syllabus? because i have an ASM manual from 2011 haha and the introduction to derivatives is very summarized

The new syllabus does include some things that were not on the previous syllabus, for example, the "calculation" of greeks. The introductory derivatives material from FM was previously assumed, but I will still need to review it in depth.

PCP is reviewed in MFE manual but you will be missing on some stuffs like combining options (butterfly spread, bull spread, etc), etc. So definitely get something to review FM topics.

Cool

Welcome everyone to the party.



I'm a day away from finishing the ASM 10th edition and have to say that this material is soooooooo.....ooooooo much easier than MLC in my opinion. (Just passed MLC in April.) Yes I'm ahead of schedule, but I'm also trying to fit in VEE Applied Statistics in August.
