Webinar: The Directional Butterfly

If you’ve got a good grasp on the vertical spread strategy and are looking for something a bit more challenging, maybe it’s time to look at a butterfly strategy. Directional butterflies are built with multiple positions, and that means they require close attention. The good news? OIC can help guide you through how they work. Join OIC Instructor Ken Keating on June 17th for a free in-depth webinar where Ken will discuss:

  • A recap of vertical spreads
  • Traditional butterflies
  • Directional butterflies – bullish and bearish
  • Strike selection and managing positions at expiration

We'll also provide examples with profit and loss calculations so you can see more about how the directional butterfly strategy works. Sign up today. Plus, when you register, you'll get access to the replay any time.
