+-Input factors and key performance indicators

Based on the detailed post transaction valuation of certificates and leveraged products, EDG offers a wide range of indicators for derivatives. They include price sensitivities (“Greeks”), valuation input parameters (e.g. implicit volatilities) as well as comparative indicators (sideways yield, distance from the barrier for bonus certificates, etc.) and event risk (knock-out probability, expected yield, etc.).
