The Options Industry Council (OIC) was created to educate individual investors, financial advisors and institutional investors about the benefits and risks of exchange-traded equity options. In these podcasts, OIC exchange instructors discuss a range of options topics beginning with the fundamentals through more complex trading strategies. Topics include call options, put options, options pricing, LEAPS or long-term options, ETF’s, and covered calls.

Good starting point...

These are a decent starting point if you are learning about options trading. To say that nowhere in here are the risks of trading options covered, as another reviewer has, is overstated. The entire segment on buying calls, for example, discusses the implication of owning a call option at expiration when the strike price is out of the money. If you can't connect the dots on that one, you probably shouldn't be trading options in any case.

OIC Options Strategies

I think these video lessons are reasonably thorough, and are valuable for beginners to intermediate Options traders. Best aspect is emphasis on full discussion of risks and rewards and need for planning ahead for all eventualities. A little weak on explanations of selection of particular strike prices, call dates, and particular strategy choices. Keep in mind that most option 'lessons' available on the Web are slanted towards selling of a particular service, and the OIC videos are decidely neutral, a very rare and positive attribute.

I would like more!!

I am a new option investor and this podcast really helped me out I have listened to all of them! Options still aren't real clear to me! But with more examples I hope options will become more second nature to me. When I first started out I didn't even know what options are but now I can make some simple trades. Thank you for the free advise.
