FX Options are derivatives based on underlying currency pairs. Trading FX Options involves a wide variety of strategies available for use in FX markets, where foreign currencies are traded. The strategy a trader may employ depends largely on the kind of option they choose and the broker or platform through which it is offered.
The characteristics of currency options trading include a decentralized FX market that varies much more widely than options in the more centralized exchanges of stock and futures markets.
Options traded in the FX marketplace differ from those in other markets in that they allow traders to trade without taking actual delivery of the asset. FX options trade over-the-counter (OTC), and traders can choose prices and expiration dates which suit their hedging or profit strategy needs. Unlike futures, where the trader must fulfil the terms of the contract, options traders do not have that obligation at expiration.
