  • Basically, there are two kinds of Currency Options:
    1. Call option is the right, but not the obligation, to buy a currency against another
    2. Put option is the right, but not the obligation, to sell a currency against another

The price or fee in which the buyer pays the writer of the option is the premium of the option. The decision to exercise the option is dependent on the strike price versus the spot price.
