An option is a contract that gives you the right to buy or sell a financial instrument at a pre-set price, until a specific point in time.
This instrument is known as the underlying asset, and may be a share, an index, or another asset type.
Options can serve as a protection for your investment in shares. In addition, several option strategies allow the investor to generate income when the market rises or when prices fall.
Euronext’s ”Options Investing E-Learning” series covers the 6 main topics you need to know when investing in options. This series of short animated videos is specifically designed for investors who are considering starting options trading.
