Understanding Options Trading 

Options are contracts that allow an investor to speculate and potentially profit from the increase or decrease in the price of the underlying security. A call option purchased is profitable when the market on the underlying stock increases. Calls give the investor the right to buy. Puts are profitable when the market of the underlying stock declines.

Both of these two options can be purchased or sold (written). When the options are written, the investors are betting against the buyers of the same contract.

The following titles are available away from our site that can help you learn and understand the option market. Trading Calls and Puts can be very profitable for investors who understand them.
