  • Thales ancient Greek philosopherLOW STRIKEOLIVE SEASON HIGH

  • EXAMPLE Supposedly the first option buyer in the world was the ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher Thales of Miletus. On a certain occasion, it was predicted that the season's olive harvest would be larger than usual, and during the off-season he acquired the right to use a number of olive presses the following spring. When spring came and the olive harvest was larger than expected he exercised his options and then rented the presses out at much higher price than he paid for his 'option'.

  • OPTION TERMINOLOGYOption Seller - One who gives/writes the option. He has an obligation to perform, in case option buyer desires to exercise his option. Option Buyer - One who buys the option. He has the right to exercise the option but no obligation. Call Option - Option to buy. Put Option - Option to sell.

  • OPTION TERMINOLOGYAmerican Option - An option which can be exercised anytime on or before the expiry date. Strike Price/ Exercise Price - Price at which the option is to be exercised. Expiration Date - Date on which the option expires. European Option - An option which can be exercised only on expiry date. Exercise Date - Date on which the option gets exercised by the option holder/buyer. Option Premium - The price paid by the option buyer to the option seller for granting the option.

  • CALL OPTIONSA call option gives you the right to buy within a specified time period at a specified price

    The owner of the option pays a cash premium to the option seller in exchange for the right to buy


  • CALL OPTIONS - ILLUSTRATIONAn investor buys one European Call option on one share of Neyveli Lignite at a premium of Rs.2 per share on 31 July. The strike price is Rs.60 and the contract matures on 30 September. It may be clear form the graph that even in the worst case scenario, the investor would only lose a maximum of Rs.2 per share which he/she had paid for the premium. The upside to it has an unlimited profits opportunity. On the other hand the seller of the call option has a payoff chart completely reverse of the call options buyer. The maximum loss that he can have is unlimited though a profit of Rs.2 per share would be made on the premium payment by the buyer.

  • PUT OPTIONSA put option gives you the right to sell within a specified time period at a specified price

    It is not necessary to own the asset before acquiring the right to sell it

  • An investor buys one European Put Option on one share of Neyveli Lignite at a premium of Rs. 2 per share on 31 July. The strike price is Rs.60 and the contract matures on 30 September. The adjoining graph shows the fluctuations of net profit with a change in the spot price.


  • All exchange-traded options have standardized expiration datesThe Saturday following the third Friday of designated months for most options

    Investors typically view the third Friday of the month as the expiration date

    The striking price of an option is the predetermined transaction price In multiples of $2.50 (for stocks priced $25.00 or below) or $5.00 (for stocks priced higher than $25.00)

    There is usually at least one striking price above and one below the current stock price


  • Puts and calls are based on 100 shares of the underlying security

    The underlying security is the security that the option gives you the right to buy or sell

    It is not possible to buy or sell odd lots of options

  • A financial future is a futures contract on a short term interest rate (STIR). Contracts vary, but are often defined on an interest rate index such as 3-month sterling or US dollar LIBOR.

    They are traded across a wide range of currencies, including the G12 country currencies and many others.

    The assets often traded in futures contracts include commodities, stocks, and bonds. Grain, precious metals, electricity, oil, beef, orange juice, and natural gas are traditional examples of commodities, but foreign currencies, emissions credits, bandwidth, and certain financial instruments are also part of today's commodity markets.
