What are options?

Options are products that allow for payouts from predicting market movements, without needing to buy the underlying asset. You only need to open a position that predicts how the asset will move over a period of time. This makes it possible for people to participate in the financial markets with minimal capital investment.

Options available on Deriv

You can trade the following options on Deriv:

  • Digital options that allow you to predict the outcome from two possible results and earn a fixed payout if your prediction is correct.

  • Lookbacks that allow you to earn a payout depending on the optimum high or low achieved by the market during the duration of a contract.

  • Call/Put Spreads that allow you to earn up to the specified payout depending on the position of the exit spot relative to the two defined barriers.
