**This is the session we had to reschedule from March 21.** The Options Industry Council (OIC) was created to educate investors and their financial advisors about the benefits and risks of exchange-traded equity options. Options are a versatile but complex product and that is why OIC conducts hundreds of seminars and webcasts throughout the year, distributes thousands of interactive DVDs and brochures, and maintains a Web site and Investor Services focused on options education.
Joe Burgoyne, Director, Institutional and Retail Marketing, for The Options Industry Council, created a three-part webinar series exclusively for TheStreet's premium subscribers. In addition to basic, intermediate and volatility presentations, we will include content on fundamentals and volatility history.
During the intermediate course, you will see how flexible options are, and how limited risk spreads might fit into even the most conservative portfolios. Find out about straddles and strangles, and the nature of volatility. Learn about ways to repair an existing stock position that's moved against you. An understanding of the basics, as well as limited experience trading options, will help you make the most of this webinar.
