About the options
The statement states: “An option contract gives the buyer (owner or holder of the option) the option of buying or not buying an underlying. With options, the buyer can buy the underlying at the market price for profit and at the same time choose not to buy the asset to reduce losses. However, the seller who sold the option and received the buyer’s premium option has an obligation to sell the underlying asset as set out in the option contract. In contrast to conventional financial instruments such as spots and futures, options are contracts that guarantee rights but do not create obligations. ”
