Learn more about Options Trading

Options trading is a strategic investment tool that uses a contract to buy or sell a specified financial asset, without any obligation to do so. Option trading occurs extensively in market trade, because it is lower risk than other investment tools, and has the potential to yield significant returns. Options trading training on Udemy can teach you the principles and strategies of this widely popular investment tool.

Frequently asked questions
Options are contracts that give the owner the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an asset at a certain price, either before or on a specific date and time. The price at which the option's owner can buy or sell the asset is called the "strike price." Traders and investors use options to generate income, to hedge against risk, or to speculate. An option is a derivative because it derives its value from the asset that underlies it. The underlying asset can be stocks, bonds, commodities, or currencies. An option to buy an asset is called a "call option," and an option to sell an asset is referred to as a "put option." For example, suppose you bought a call option for 100 shares of Company A's stock at US$10.00 per share with an expiration date of March 31. You would have purchased the option to buy 100 shares of Company A on or before March 31.
