Webinar: Understanding the Iron Condor

Options provide investors with a variety of ways they may meet their investment needs, including times when they have a neutral outlook. One strategy for these situations is the iron condor. On Oct. 13th, join former market maker and current OIC instructor Ed Modla for a free, live overview of the iron condor strategy, which will discuss:

  • Vertical spreads
  • Strike and expiration selection
  • The risk/reward profile of the strategy
  • Variations including staggering quantity and strike selection
  • Implied volatility skew

For any investor ready to have their options questions answered in real time, OIC is planning a unique event to do just that. On Nov. 10, former pit broker and current OIC instructor Mark Benzaquen will lead a free, live presentation to answer frequently asked questions on topics such as listing requirements, assignment risk and implied volatility. But there's a creative twist: OIC will poll attendees on key topics, then discuss the answers provided by the audience - it's interactive learning. Sample questions may include:

  • How is the decision made to list options on a particular security?
  • What determines the price of an option?
  • When does the ability to exercise an option end?
  • Are there times a stock price may increase, but a call option on the stock does not?

Investors of all levels are welcome to attend the event and learn in an engaging format with OIC. Sign up today - plus, registration provides access to our on-demand library where OIC events can be watched again any time.
