The Options Industry Council (OIC) has announced that its first Investor Education Day (IED) for 2014 will take place on March 22 in Boca Raton, FL.?

This popular and free all day OIC options education program is taught by experienced instructors from the various options exchanges and OIC professionals. This event is the first of two IED?s hosted by OIC this spring to help investors develop their knowledge and ability to responsibly trade options.

The IED offers two different tracks for attendees based on their investment experience and skill level: Options Basics or Advanced Strategies. Options Basics will examine fundamentals, such as basic strategies and the risks and rewards of using options, while Advanced Strategies will focus on more complicated concepts such as credit spreads and the Greeks.
