Options Beginner Module

Options have a learning curve. The theory and foundation is critical. Every Pro started here

Introduction to Put Options


The Put Option is the exact opposite of a Call Option. Put Options increase in value when the value of a stock or index drops in price. We define what a Put Option, and just like we did in the Call Option, we consider a real-world example of a Put Option. Fortunately, we have excellent examples of Put Options in real life – when we buy Insurance for our car or home, we are actually buying a Put Option. This example should make it absolutely clear what a Put Option is. The course looks at buyer and seller perspectives in a Put Option transaction, and analyzes the breakeven, and profit and loss profiles, all using the real world example first. Finally, we look at expiry and settlement procedures for Put Options.
