About Options trading
An Options contract offers the buyer (the owner or holder of the option) the opportunity to buy the underlying asset or not. With Options, the buyer is able to buy the underlying asset at the strike price to make a profit and can simultaneously choose to not buy the asset to reduce losses. However, for the seller who has sold the Option and received the premium from the Options buyer, there is an obligation to sell the underlying asset as stated in the Options contract. Unlike traditional financial instruments such as spots and futures, Options are contracts which grant rights, but incur no obligations.
