2021 Educational Series: The Foundations of Options Investing

 As a brand new year gets under way, The Options Industry Council (OIC) is thrilled to present another round of educational webinars for investors at every level of experience. All throughout the first quarter of 2021, OIC will focus on explaining the core concepts of options investing – by defining key terminology, examining pricing theory and detailing the impact of the option Greeks.

During each of our webinars in January, February and March, OIC instructors will draw on their years of real-world professional trading experience to provide investors with thorough, unbiased presentations about the benefits, and the risks, of exchange-listed equity options. Whether an investor is considering options as part of their financial plan for the first time, or is already using options and wants to learn more about these unique assets, OIC’s new, live webinars will help provide the building blocks for making informed decisions. 

Options are used for numerous purposes, including producing income and managing risk. But regardless of an investor’s goals with options, it’s essential to have a solid foundation. In the first three months of the new year, that’s exactly what OIC will help webinar attendees build. 

If you’re ready to join OIC on your learning journey, register today for our options webinars. And remember, all OIC webinars are free to attend – simply sign up and have an interest in learning about options. In addition, registration provides ongoing access to the OIC archive, so you can review the webinars again any time. Register now, and let OIC help you get ready for a new year of investing.
