OIC 2022 Educational Series: Reviewing Volatility and Exploring Index Options

The Options Industry Council (OIC)SM is excited to present three brand new, live webinars in the third quarter of 2022, with the first two sessions focused on volatility strategies and the last centered around helping investors understand index options.

In August, the volatility theme continues, this time with an event called Using Implied Volatility to Implement Strategies. Finally, the quarter concludes in September with The Unique Characteristics of Index Options, featuring a review of how these products differ from equity and ETF options.

Leading each webinar will be our experienced instructors, all of whom worked as options industry professionals prior to joining the Investor Education team at OCC.
