For instance, a single call option may provide an option holder the right to purchase 100 shares of HDFC stock at Rs. 1800 up until the option expiration date in 3 months.


There are numerous expiry dates and strike prices for traders to select from. As the value of HDFC stock rises, the price of the option goes up, and the other way around.
