Options give you the right but not the obligation to buy or sell the underlying asset. It offers you the potential to profit from share price movements (both rises and falls) without necessarily holding the underlying shares. They can be divided into a call (when you buy the underlying) or put (when you sell the underlying) options.
Buying an option can be regarded as equivalent to taking out insurance - you pay out a premium in advance and if a specified event occurs then that's the time you get paid.
