Webinar: The Option Collar

Many investors agree that adequate risk management involves having insurance but buying puts to protect your portfolio can be costly.  What if there was a way to buy protection but mitigate the cost?

On May 13, join OIC for a free webinar to learn about:

  • Protective puts and covered calls
  • Traditional collars, as well as collar varieties
  • Picking staggered expiration dates

Plus, we'll provide examples with profit and loss graphs to improve your understanding. Register today to learn about collars-registering gives you access to the webinar replay any time.

  • The basics of options spreads and why verticals are used
  • How debit and credit spreads differ
  • Strike and expiration selection

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.
