CHICAGO (March 6, 2014) - The Options Industry Council (OIC) today announced that its first Investor Education Day (IED) for 2014 is taking place in Boca Raton, FL on March 22.

Options are an ideal tool for a variety of investors and market conditions. The popular, and free, all day options education program is taught by experienced instructors from the various options exchanges and OIC professionals.
