If you are concerned that the market is headed for a downturn, don't worry – you have options. The Options Industry Council will guide you on how investors can use options to hedge against risk. We'll explore the basics that investors should know before building up to more complex hedging strategies. Be sure to attend one of our upcoming webinars and sign up for our half-day live Chicago seminar in March.
This January, we are laying the foundation of how investors can use options for risk management. We'll be reviewing core concepts including:
- What you need to know about risk management
- Benefits of buying put options for portfolio protection
- Understanding the rights of option buyers and the obligations of option sellers
- Setting up protective puts and collars
- Stock repair strategies
Whether you are new to options or a seasoned pro, this will be a good month to learn about options as a hedging tool. If you want to get a head start, you can explore our available videos on hedging stock or one of the more common hedging strategies of trading protective put options.
We're looking forward to another year of providing unbiased, trustworthy options education, and we hope you'll join us.
