Course introduction

Options are an investment instrument with financial contracts as object, that give their holder the right to buy or sell an underlying asset at a fixed price (strike price) within or at the expiration of the contract itself. The underlying assets may be stocks, indices, commodities, or currencies. What you really need to know about options is the big difference between call options (right to buy) and put options (right to sell). Choosing one option or the other will clearly depend on the investor’s price forecasts.

Options are also called derivative securities and are complex instruments compared to others; they also involve a certain degree of risk. The investor should have a thorough understanding of this instrument before undertaking options trading.

The technical characteristics as well as the motivations that can push the investor to choose this instrument – such as hedging, speculation or income generation purposes – are the main topics covered by this course, so as to guarantee a personalised path based on the training and investment needs of every participant.
