Technically speaking Options are worthless and nothing in and of themselves. Options are derivatives of an underlying security such as a stock or ETF. Think of Options traders as the spectators at a sporting event and the stock traders as the players on the field. The definition of an Option is a contract that gives the owner of the option the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a set number of shares of a particular stock at a fixed price (strike price) for a specific period (expiration).
Not all stocks have options associated with them, but those who do have to meet certain criteria. * The underlying equity must be listed on an approved national stock exchange * The underlying has a minimum price of $3 per share for five consecutive trading days prior to being listed * At least 7 million publicly held shares must be outstanding, not counting those held by directors or 10% plus holders * There are at least 2,000 shareholders. Options cannot be listed for trading following an IPO until after 5 trading days.
Liquidity has various meanings. I use it to determine volatility and whether I should enter a trade. I look at the premium spread (bid-ask) of an option to determine the volatility, and thus the liquidity of the trade. When the premium spread is larger than normal it tells us that the market maker is uncertain about how to trade and where he/she will me the money on the underlying to offset any risk (hedge) on the trade, If the market maker is unsure then I most definitely do not want to rush into that dark room. Remember that as option traders we follow the market and we do not dictate the market.
The wash-sale rule prevents non broker-dealers from selling stock or securities (including options) at a loss and reacquiring roughly identical stock or securities within a 30-day period before or after the loss. Check with your accountant for your particular situation.
Yes. In American Options, unlike European Options, you can exercise your option to buy or sell at any time. When you are in a Short position and you do not have the right, but the obligation, be careful that the holder of the option can exercise against your Short position as well. However, you will find that most Short positions expire worthless without ever having been exercised.
Technically speaking you should be able to turn around and sell it immediately, but different brokers may have different instructions. Some brokers require that the stock purchase settle, which could take 3 days, and others will allow you to sell the next trading day. Be sure to check with your broker for their requirements.
You possess the right to exercise your Long position, Call or Put) before expiration, but if your Long position closes ITM (In-the-Money) you could be assigned the obligation to perform.
