How does trading stock options work?

For example, do I can just trade the contract cost without the Obligation? No stock? For example, say you buy a call contract at $ 2. 50 ($ 250. 00) and the d? Next comes the stock and the contract itself is called a value of $ 2. 55 ($ 255. 00). ? Be? A sale can contact the same call for $ 2. 55 with any other Obligation? No, even before the expiration? N? ? Tambi? N work that way with put options? Thanks

    Yes. The only time you have an obligation is when you have written an option (sold an option you do not own).

    One important thing you need to understand is that the price of an option depends upon more than the price of the stock. It is perfectly possible to buy a call option but see the price of the call option go down even though the price of the stock went up. Similarly, it is perfectly possible to buy a put option but see the price of the put option go down even though the price of the stock went down.

    1. yes, options is about right, not obligation.
    2. yes, you can.
    3. yes, it’s the same as put options.
