What is Options Trading?

Options are the right to buy or sell a financial asset at a predetermined price, and this right is exercised (or not) at a future date. The trading of these contracts, which are also called derivatives, takes place on the options market.

These contracts always have an underlying asset, which can be a stock, a currency or an interest rate. The amount paid for the option is called a premium. Every option has an specific month of maturity, which is when the acquired right can be exercised. It also has an exercise price that will be crucial when deciding whether or not to exercise that vested right.

What is Options Trading for?

The primary function of options is the hedge (or protection) of an investment portfolio, because options guarantee a minimum sale value of the assets of a portfolio. These derivatives are also used for speculation, in an attempt to obtain quick profits from the sudden price fluctuations of these contracts.

Since options are much cheaper than their underlying assets, they are also used to delay the decision to buy or sell these assets in a relatively inexpensive manner.
