Competence Trainer

(Simulation-based) Training: Options – Put Option (information)

Short description

Setup a put option position of one contract and see what happens to its price when the underlying futures contract price changes.


You act in the role of an option trader.
More specifically, you act in the capacity of aggressor.


Take a put option position (by transacting a put option). First buy one unit to setup a long put option position of one contract. Then, analyse the value of the put option position, while simultaneoulsy following the price development of the option’s underlying futures contract (both put option and futures contract are reflected in two separate price charts). Explore their price relationship.


The aim of this simulation is to learn about option valuation. You can master the impact of a price change of the underlying asset (futures contract) for the option value. Make sure you compare the option value to the value of the underlying asset.
