Index options

An index option is a financial derivative product. Acquiring an index call or put option gives the holder the right to buy (or sell) this index for a certain length of time agreed in advance. The option buyer pays a premium to purchase this right. There are two main types of options: call (or buy) options and put (or sale) options.
