Foreign exchange options can be of two types: by buying a call option, we acquire the right to buy, by selling it, we assume a commitment to sell. By buying a put option, we acquire the right to sell, and by selling it, we assume a buying obligation.


For purchased options

  • You can benefit from a positive shift, so you can earn extra returns by taking risks on the foreign exchange rate.
  • You can reduce or completely eliminate the exchange rate risk arising from your currency exposure in a personalised and structured way.
  • The loss from a purchased option cannot be greater than the amount of the premium paid for the option.
  • The option can be closed with a reverse trade before expiry.
  • No deposit required.

For written options

  • The option premium will be credited on the second day after the conclusion of the trade.
  • The client can earn extra income through the option premium by choosing a strike price at which the option will not be exercised or at which the client would have traded as originally intended.
  • The option can be closed with a reverse trade before expiry.


For purchased options

  • The option premium amount is an instant cost.
  • In the event of a positive move, it tends to have a higher cost compared to forwards, as the option is a complex financial product.

For written options

  • The maximum amount of profit on the written option is the amount of the option premium, while the loss can be unlimited.
  • The cost of closing an option depends on specific market conditions, which may exceed the cost of closing forwards with the same nominal value.
  • It is a complex product, so the identification of risks requires greater preparedness on the part of clients (a thorough knowledge of the product information is required to fully understand the risks).
