Forex Options

FX Vanilla Options

A Vanilla Option is a derivative financial instrument that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to either buy or sell Call or Put Options of a predefined notional amount of a currency cross at a pre-defined price ("Strike price") at a predefined date in the future (“Expiry date”). The seller of the option has a corresponding obligation to fulfill the transaction should the buyer decide to “exercise” his right.

At Saxo Capital Markets, Forex Options can be either bought or sold.
