WHAT ARE OPTIONS?
Options are contracts between two parties to exchange an underlying asset at a specific price by a certain expiration date.
By combining long and short options with put and call options, a variety of strategies can be utilized across different market environments.
While you can use options to speculate on the directional price movements of a financial instrument, options are non-linear. So, the probability of profit is also affected by factors such as implied volatility (IV), time to expiration, and location of the strike price in relation to the underlying price.
