Put Option

A put option is a bet that the value of its underlying security will fall. A buyer pays a premium to a writer (i.e., seller) for the right, but not obligation, to sell the underlying security to the buyer at any time on or before the expiration date, at a predetermined strike price (for an American-style option). If the value of the underlying security falls below the strike price, the put option is in the money.
