OIC Announces Three-Part Seminar Series Returns for Fall Season


Chicago, IL — September 4, 2014

The Options Industry Council (OIC) announced today its equity options seminar schedule for the fall season. The fall schedule will feature OIC’s three-part seminar series which debuted to great success this past spring. The fall lineup will also include OIC’s popular Advanced Strategies seminar and interactive Options Workshop.

The three-part seminar series will be held in 6 different cities this fall with back-to-back sessions covering options fundamentals and some intermediate level trading topics. The seminars are spaced one week apart to give attendees more time to review and learn the material from the previous week. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion when completing all three sessions in the series. OIC is continuing with this new seminar format following its success and popularity in the spring season.

OIC’s equity options seminars are part of the Options Education Program and are taught by experienced exchange and OIC professionals. Investors and financial advisors are invited to attend these in-person events to increase their knowledge on the responsible use of exchange-listed equity options. All seminars are free to attend and take place weekdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fall seminars will be offered from September 16 through November 13 in the following cities: Atlanta, GA; Arlington, VA; Boca Raton, FL; Chicago, IL; Edison, NJ; Los Angeles, CA; Metro Detroit, MI; New York Midtown, NY; Pasadena, CA; Phoenix, AZ; The Villages, FL.

In addition to in-person events, OIC will host live webinars this fall on a variety of options topics. The next webinar in the series, “Diagonal Equity Call Spreads: Risk and Reward” will be held on Tuesday, September 9, at 4:30 ET / 3:30 CT.
