Options ETF Overview

Options are financial contracts that give their buyer the right to buy or sell a stock at a predetermined price. Options are also known as derivatives, as their prices are a function of their underlying instruments.

According to exchange figures, ETFs now account for about 70% of all equity option volume. More people trade options on ETFs than they trade options on individual stocks. Options are used by investors to not only hedge a portfolio but to speculate on future price movements.
