OIC 2023 Educational Series: Complex Spreads and Volatility Strategies

Throughout the third quarter of 2023, The Options Industry CouncilSM is launching new webinars to help investors learn about the potential benefits and risks of strategies with exchange-listed options. Each month of the quarter will feature two brand new instructor-led live webinars, at no cost to registrants, covering a variety of options investing topics.

In July, OIC will offer a pair of sessions around the theme of condor and butterfly strategies, including a review of the components and how these positions are established. During August, spread strategies will be in focus, with an overview of calendar spreads in the first webinar of the month, followed by a discussion of diagonal spreads. The quarter will conclude in September with two presentations on the theme of volatility strategies, reviewing both long and short straddles and strangles.

All OIC webinars, which are led by instructors with prior options industry experience, require registration. However, signing up is always free, and attendees will get access to the full on-demand learning library of past OIC educational webinars -- that means you can continue learning about options online any time.

Visit the OIC events page on the website to register for a webinar.
