The origin of Options Trading dates back hundreds of years to about 330 BC when a man named Thales secured his right to buy olives before harvesting time. Years later, in 1636 tulips were traded with options in Amsterdam. The array of options contracts to trade has grown over time, covering for example precious metals, stock indices, energy sources such as oil and natural gas, currencies or interest rates.

An option is a contract giving the holder the right but not the obligation, to buy (Call), or sell (Put) the underlying asset at a pre-arranged price on or before a fixed date in the future.

The buyer of a Call Option acquires the right, but not the obligation, to buy the underlying asset at a fixed price. The buyer of a Put Option acquires the right, but not the obligation to sell the underlying asset at a fixed price. Options can also be sold or written. While this opens up a wide range of possibilities for market participants, it does not come without a high degree of risk and therefore requires a high level of product knowledge.

The Marketplace
Options are so called derivatives. "Derivatives" markets consist primarily of two types of participants, hedgers and speculators.

Hedgers
The purpose of hedging is to reduce the risk of loss or to lock in profits on any existing position. This is achieved by taking positions in Options (or Futures) markets that are equal in size and opposite to the current cash positions.

Speculators
Speculating involves trades that involve a certain element of high-risk and is designed to profit from a rise or fall in a particular market.
