What is Options Trading and how to use Sensibull for Options trading?

Options is a tool for protecting your position and reducing risk. Like normal trading, there is a buyer and a seller in options trading. Options Contract is a type of deal or contracts between the buyer and the seller that gives the purchaser of the option the right to buy or sell a particular asset at a later date at an agreed price. To enter the options contracts, the buyer of the options contract has to pay a small amount to the seller which is called premium. The stock price listed in the contract is called the strike price.

Options trading can be done by two ways:

Call Options: “The buyer of the call option has theright, but not the obligationto buy an agreed quantity of a particular commodity or financial instrument(the underlying) from the seller of the option at a certain time (the expiration date) for a certain price (the strike price). The seller (or “writer”) is obligated to sell the commodity or financial instrument should the buyer so decide. The buyer pays a fee (called a premium) for this right”.

Put Options: Put options contract gives the buyer of the contract the right to sell the stock at a strike price by a specified date. This means the put option seller, upon expiry will have to buy if the ‘put option buyer’ is selling him. The party agreeing to pay a premium is called the ‘contract buyer’ and the party receiving the premium is called the ‘contract seller’.
