If you thought trading in options little bit like rocket science, then you are not exactly to be blamed. That is what futures & options are made out to be in the markets. They are presented as some exotic product that is abstruse and hard to comprehend. For a moment let us forget about speculating and trading using options. OK, let us also forget about futures for now. Is it possible to understand options in very simple and elementary terms? The answer is an emphatic “Yes”. In a nutshell, options can be used for hedging your risk and how it actually works. Options can also be used for trading and creating positions in the market with limited cost and limited downside risk.
