The Options Industry Council was created to educate investors and their financial advisors about the benefits and risks of exchange-traded equity options. This podcast series will feature discussions with industry experts and exchange professionals about the latest topics that are impacting the options industry.
Host Joe Burgoyne will answer an options question from an investor: Will he receive a dividend if he is long an in-the-money call and has instructed his broker to exercise the call the day prior to it going ex-dividend? Next, Joe will explain why an investor can't close her position until expiration on an index put option that is "European" exercise style.
Targeted to individuals who would like to learn and understand the fundamentals of the options markets.
