What Are Put Options?

Hi my name is Imran Lakha and I am a trader-turned-teacher. This quick video tutorial is a follow-on from my last upload, 'What Are Call Options?'.

The following points are covered:

  • A Put is the right, but not the obligation, to sell an underlying at a fixed price (strike) at a given maturity date

  • Positive payoff is on the downside. It is a BEARISH position if you buy a put.

  • You can consider Puts as an insurance against your portfolio (pay insurance premium)

  • If the 100 Strike Put costs 5, then breakeven = strike - premium = 95.

  • You start to make PNL below 95 in the stock

  • The demand for portfolio insurance creates a natural demand for downside puts in the market
