25 May 12:15

Q: What is a CBBC?

A: CBBC, or callable bull/bear contract, is a kind of financial derivative with established conditions (mandatory call, strike price, expiration date, etc.), which can track the trend of the target assets. It has the nature of leverage and is essentially an option.

Q: What do "Bull" and "Bear" mean?

Q: What is the difference between CBBC and warrant?

Q: what happens when the CBBC reaches the trigger point?
A: When the price of the underlying asset reaches a call price before expiry, it will trigger a mandatory call. the CBBC will stop trading and be forced to be called by the issuer to wait for settlement. After a mandatory call, CBBC enters an “observation period” to observe whether the price of the CBBC rises or falls below the strike price during two complete trading sessions.

Q: What are the funding costs of a CBBC?
A: Funding costs are the financial cost of creating a CBBC for the issuer, which is reflected in its price and will decrease from day to day. As the CBBC gets closer to its expiration date, the financial cost becomes smaller.

Q: I Am a novice, warrant, or CBBC, which one is more suitable for me?
A: The CBBC is not affected by the time value and implied volatility. It focuses more on the call price and is closer to the price of the target asset, so the structure of the CBBC is relatively more "Simple and rough". But the mechanism of mandatory call means the CBBC can only be recalled once the strike price is triggered, even reversed trends are helpless. Warrants have a time value, the closer they are to the expiration date, the higher the value, and it is also affected by the implied volatility. But there is no risk of mandatory calls, so it can be "turned over" if the market recovers. So warrants have a relatively smaller risk.

In fact, for both market conditions and different rules, there are different risks and benefits. For a novice, the most important part is to understand the characteristics of the two products, conduct flexible operations so as to win benefits.
