ISE Launches Enhanced Options Trading Education Content on Website

4 December 2008

The International Securities Exchange (ISE) announced today that it has launched a new options trading education section on its website, offering a comprehensive suite of enhanced educational tools and content for traders of all levels of options trading experience. New features include access to ISE's webcasts, podcasts and YouTube videos that feature a wide spectrum of seminars on topics ranging from basic options, to FX options and index options, to advanced trading strategies as well as online education classes through the Options Industry Council (OIC). In addition, ISE has created an "Ask the Experts" tool, allowing investors to directly contact ISE's renowned in-house educators, Alex Jacobson and Steve Meizinger, to ask the options trading questions that are most relevant to their individual needs.

"Educating investors about how to use options as an effective tool to hedge risk within a portfolio has never been more important given the uncertainty and turbulence in the current market environment," said Bruce Goldberg, Chief Marketing Officer of ISE. "ISE has been committed to providing investors with timely, high-quality options trading education since its inception, and our enhanced website offers even more efficient access to a broad range of educational tools through an expanded number of convenient mediums."

As a member of the OIC, a non-profit joint venture by the seven U.S. options exchanges and The Options Clearing Corporation that is dedicated to options education, ISE creates and delivers programs designed to reach investors and brokers alike. ISE's suite of educational resources includes live seminars and webinars on a wide range of topics, new trading tools, and current articles from its education experts.
