Buying Selling Options Puts Calls _HOT_

Arbitrage is the process of simultaneous buying and selling of an asset from different platforms, exchanges or locations to cash in on the price difference (usually small in percentage terms). While getting into an arbitrage trade, the quantity of the underlying asset bought and sold should be the same. Only the price difference is captured as the net pay-off from the trade. The pay-off should be

Many F&O traders normally are confused between buying a put option versus selling a call option. A call vs. put may be a source of much doubt in the minds of traders and novice investors. Broadly both are bearish strategies, and the difference between a call and put option is that while the former is a right to buy the latter is a right to sell. Obviously when you buy an option your risk is limited to the premium you pay. That is because your loss is limited to the premium paid while your profits can be unlimited. On the other hand, when selling an option, your income is limited to the option premium received, but the losses can be technically unlimited. Let us understand the difference between a call and a put option with an example. Let us also understand how to trade in call and put options, both on the buy side and the sell side.

Before you understand the difference between a call and a put with an example, you should note that call and put options are bought and sold with a contract. If you purchase an options contract, the contract gives you the right (but not the obligation) to purchase or sell any underlying asset. Moreover, the buying and selling price is fixed in accordance with a date limit or before that, based on terms of the contract. What a call option does, therefore, is gives the holder the right to purchase a stock. The put option gives the stockholder the right to sell any stock.

Lastly, are you playing for a rise in volatility or fall in volatility in the market? If you are playing for a rise in volatility, then buying a put option is the better choice. However, if you are betting on volatility coming down then selling the call option is a better choice.

All options, both puts and calls, can be bought and sold. To initiate an options trade, you must either enter an opening purchase or an opening sale. In an opening purchase trade, an investor opens a position by buying a call or a put. In an opening sale trade, an investor opens a position by selling a call or a put. To get out of a trade, an investor must do the reverse. An investor who previously purchased an option can exit the trade with a closing sale of the same contract series. An investor who previously sold an option can exit the trade with a closing purchase.

Assignment Risk: The seller of an options contract may be assigned and required to fulfill the terms of the contract by either selling or buying the underlying security at the strike price. For the sellers of equity options, assignment can happen at any time. Learn more about assignment.

Open InterestOpen interest refers to the number of outstanding contracts in a particular options market or an options contract. This information can be broken down by puts and calls, strike price and expiration date for options tied to a particular security.

Some hedgers would like the ability to establish a minimum selling price for grain, while still being able to take advantage of a potential increase in grain prices. That is where options come in, offering price protection plus flexibility.

This module will describe how grain sellers can purchase put options to establish a minimum, or floor, selling price for grain, while still maintaining the opportunity to sell grain at a higher price.

One alternative is to lock in the selling price of $9.30 with a short futures hedge, by selling November futures at $9.50. However, the producer decides to buy put options to establish a floor selling price and retain the opportunity to potentially sell his soybeans at a higher price.

No one can predict the future, but hedgers can take steps to manage it. Using grain futures and options allows those who need protection against falling prices to have peace of mind of knowing that they have taken steps to manage the risk involved in producing and selling these commodities for their business.

There are pros and cons to every investment decision. Though we are describing a costless options strategy, selling and buying options to minimize the out-of-pocket investor cost, there still may be a small incremental cost.

Trading short naked puts (i.e. put selling or put writing) can be an effective and profitable options trading strategy. The attraction of naked put selling is often the ability to collect premium with a margin for error if the stock drops while having the ability to purchase stock at a discount to the current market price. The trouble comes, however, when the stock moves lower and challenges the naked put position.

In contrast to buying options, selling stock options does come with an obligation - the obligation to sell the underlying equity to a buyer if that buyer decides to exercise the option and you are "assigned" the exercise obligation. "Selling" options is often referred to as "writing" options.

But a long position also has a specialized meaning, having to do with options and options trading. It refers to buying a specific kind of option, based on your belief as to where the price of a stock (or another asset) is headed. Let's examine how a long position in options, or "going long" as the traders say, works.

While one could easily accomplish this by selling your fixed price swaps, "pocketing" the gains, and buying call options, there is a more effective strategy which results in the same solution at a lower cost. In the trading world, we call it a synthetic call option. In practice, it is the combination of a fixed price swap and a put option, which when combined, creates a position which is the same as a call option, also called a price cap.

As an alternative, which would result in the same result, yet at a lower cost, Crimson could simply purchase $3.10 October 2012 heating oil Asian (average price) put option for approximately $0.1175/gallon. By retaining their existing swap and purchasing the $3.10 put option, Crimson only has to enter into one new transaction, which means that they are only subjected to the bid/ask spread on one transaction. In addition, due to call skew in October $3.10 heating oil options (which essentially means that the market currently considers the call options more dear than the put options), Crimson will save an additional $0.0075/gallon by buying the $3.10 put option rather than the selling the $2.60 swap and purchasing the $3.10 call option.

So how does the synthetic call option provide Crimson with the same result as selling the $2.60 fixed price swap, pocketing the gain and subsequently buying a $3.10 call option? In short, the $2.50 fixed price swap will continue to provides Crimson with a hedge against rising heating oil prices while the $3.10 put call option will provide them with a penny for penny gain should October heating oil prices average less than $3.10/gallon.

Furthermore, in the stock market, option volatility often decreases as the stock price increases, as it reflects investor confidence in the company. Hence, buying upside calls when the stock goes up could still lose you money on vega and theta.

As indicated, many option strategies involve great complexity and risk. For this reason, not all options strategies will be suitable for all investors. In fact, with the exception of sophisticated, high net worth individuals who can afford and are willing to incur substantial losses, the writing of puts or uncovered calls would be unsuitable for just about everyone. Nevertheless, brokers sometimes engage in inappropriate options trading on behalf of customers who do not understand the risks.

In our original article on busting options myths, we described four myths bandied about options that we think are misleading and/or suboptimal. We followed-up with a discussion of covered calls. In this third article in the series, we focus on short puts, specifically cash-secured puts. As before, we will discuss the conventional myths in more detail, provide some justification of our criticism and of our new method, and also give you a tool to use with our unusual trading style.

Stock options in the United States can be exercised on any business day, and the holder of a short option position has no control over when they will be required to fulfill the obligation. Therefore, the risk of early assignment is a real risk that must be considered. However, since sellers of cash-secured puts are generally willing to buy the underlying shares, the possibility of early assignment should not be of great concern.

For most people, the gains and losses from calland put options are taxed as capital gains (on capital account). However, if you are in the business of buyingand selling stock, then your gains and losses from options will be treated asincome (on income account - see capital or income). When your options are treated as capital gains, their disposition is reported onSchedule3 Part 3, where publicly traded shares are reported.

For taxpayers who record gains and losses from optionsas income, the income from options sold (written) is reported inthe tax year in which the options expire, or are exercised or bought back. When call options are purchased and subsequently exercised, the cost ofthe options is added to the cost base of the purchased shares. If the calloptions are not exercised, the cost is deducted in the tax year in which theoptions expire. If the call options are closed out by selling them, theproceeds are included in income, and the original cost is written off, in thetax year in which the options are closed out. When put options arepurchased, the cost is written off in the year in which the options expire, areexercised, or are closed out by selling them. 041b061a72
