Options Education Days

The Montréal Exchange, together with The Options Industry Council (OIC), offers Options Education Days, full-day trainings designed to provide retail investors with the knowledge needed to successfully navigate the options market.

Options Education Days offer two different packages that are tailored to an individual's level of investment knowledge. One is geared towards beginners and provides attendees with an introduction to options trading, terminology, essential concepts and an overview of basic options strategies. The other package is tailored for investors with greater investment knowledge, and covers topics including advanced options strategies and concepts, such as the Greeks and volatility.

The workshops are designed for retail investors who possess knowledge and trading experience in equity markets. Options Education Days are also useful for investment advisors who are interested in learning new strategies to assist their clients, and can be especially helpful within a competitive market.
