Option

Option – an option is a form of contract or financial derivative between two parties, the option writer and the option holder.  The contract sold by the option writer gives the option holder the right to buy or sell an asset or security at an agreed price during an agreed period. However, the option holder is not obliged to buy or sell – it’s merely an option.
