FX Vanilla Options

A Vanilla option is a derivative financial instrument that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to either buy ("Call") or sell ("Put") 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 fulfil the transaction should the buyer decide to “exercise” his right.

Please note that short positions in options carry more risk than long positions as the potential loss could amount to the total payout, whereas in the case of a long position, the potential loss is limited to the premium paid.
