Compound option definition

A compound option is a type of option contract that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell another option at a predetermined price. In essence, it is an option on an option. Compound options are used in various financial markets for risk exposure management and for speculation, including equities, currencies, commodities, and interest rates.

Types of compound options

There are two types of compound options: a call-on-call option and a put-on-put option. A call-on-call option gives traders the right to buy another call option, while a put-on-put option gives traders the right to sell another put option.

Why use compound options?

Traders may use compound options to hedge against market uncertainty, as they offer more flexibility and customisability than simple options in managing risk exposure. Experienced traders who want to create complex strategies can also use compound options to take advantage of specific market conditions.

Who uses compound options?

Compound options are not typically used by retail traders due to their complexity. However, they are popular with professional and institutional investors and hedge funds. Compound options are also used in corporate finance, particularly in the pricing of convertible bonds and other hybrid securities.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
