  • Short selling calls & puts

    Hello

    I am new to options. I use Alpari UK for CFD trading with the QTrader platform.

    I have two simple questions.

    If I believe that one instrument is about to rise why not short sell put option?

    It seems to me that if indeed the instrument rises I can make profit by buying call but also by selling put, but I can't figure out which one is best.

    also


    If I believe that one instrument is about to drop in value why not short sell call option?


    The same thing but in reverse: ifthe instrument drops, I can make profit by buying put but also by selling call. Again, I can't figure out which one is best.

    Its not samething

    if you sell put or call and the trade goes against your wish you may end up buying the actual stock on higher price while you have already sold it on lower price assuming that it will decline furthure. Unless you sit in front of the computer all day and the market and ready to close the trade quickly b4 it goes against you or use proper stops. but you cant do anything if the market open higher/lower. With selling the calls/puts you have obligation while with buying the calls/puts you have the right.

      Malhans thank you for your answer. What you are saying makes sense but I just realized that even if I buy calls or puts they still act like an obligation. They seem to be cfd instruments that require a margin without any premium. They are still called options though. I will try on different brokers to get the hang of this. It is still new to me.

        Have you thought of selling credit spreads where you max loss is defined rather than selling name options?
