Introduction to Call Options

Welcome to the world of Options. The Call Option is the most basic of Options, and therefore the best to study first. Buying a Call Option is just like buying a stock – you expect the price to go up, and sell it for a profit. But what exactly is an Option, and how is it different from a stock. Most newcomers to Options have difficulty in understanding Options because training material jumps right into Options jargon. Not here. This course uses a real-world example in real estate to explain how a Call Option can be constructed for a situation. We also introduce what an At-The-Money, Out-of-the-Money and In-The-Money Option is, using our real estate example.
