What is options?

Options is a derivative product like derivative futures, where the buyer holds a right to execute option of either buying or selling of shares or another underlying at a certain pre-determined price (also known as the strike price) during a pre-determined time period.

There are two types of Options:

  1. Call Options i.e. the Right to Buy

A Call option gives buyer an option to “BUY” underlying asset at an agreed upon price with a expiry date on this contract.

  1. Put Options i.e. the Right to Sell.

Put Option gives buyer an option to “SELL” at agree upon price with a expiry date on this contract. Hence, Call buyer would want prices of the underlying to go up and put buyers would like to see prices of underlying falling.
