What is an option?

An option is a financial instrument that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy (option call) or sell (option put) a given quantity of an 'underlying' asset (stock, index, currency, etc.), at a fixed price for a pre-agreed period. The issuer of the option in this case is obliged to buy or sell the asset.
