Options are defined as the right to buy or sell an asset on a fixed future date at a fixed future price. They can be either an option to buy the asset (a “call option”) or an option to sell the asset (a “put option”) and can be either exchange traded (traded on a regulated exchange) or over the counter (traded directly with the counterparty).
