Option Premium

Option premium refers to the amount that a buyer pays for an option, i.e., the right to buy/call or sell/put a security at a specified price in the future. An option premium is a non-refundable payment for the rights specified in the stock option contract. One pays an option premium regardless of whether or not the option is actually exercised. The option premium often changes due to fluctuating market conditions and economic variables.
