What is a put option?

Video Transcription

Okay, today we’re talking about the common question that’s often asked, and that is what a put option is? There are two ways to answer this question because options are a contract, so this involves two different answers. If you’re buying a put option, you have the right to sell a stock at a fixed price within a set time frame. If you’re selling a put option, you have an obligation to buy a stock at a fixed price within a set time frame. The thing to remember here is this is a contract between two investors. That’s what the market makers are looking for. Any one buyer can match up with any one seller, and now you have the answer to what is a put option.

I was with Options Animal for 18 months and learned so much useful information that I needed in order to trade options successfully. I am very satisfied with my experience working with them. There is an abundance of resources on their website and I was able to post questions to the coaches and other participants with responses that were quick and answered all my questions. It took a lot of hard work on my part to learn this but their education was top notch. They are a very professional company and I wish I could stay on with them but at the same time, I feel I’ve learned enough to move forward on my own. I highly recommend Options ns Animal to anyone who is truly wanting to learn to trade options
I found this to be an outstanding program - in-depth knowledge you cannot find anywhere else and the staff is always very supportive. I give it an A++.
