What Is a Put?
A put option is a financial contract that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to sell an underlying asset (such as a stock, commodity, currency, index) at a specified price (strike price) within a specified time period. The holder of a put option hopes that the price of the underlying asset will decrease, so they can sell it at the higher strike price, realizing a profit from the price difference.
