Feeling bullish? Buy a Call option.
Why buy Call?
Unlike spot trading which requires full collateral, buying a Call option allows you to participate in the movement of an underlying asset for a relatively small price (Premium Payable) while enjoying leveraged returns.
Here’s a scenario
- You are bullish on BTC and expect it to trade above $11,000 on 27 March 2020
- You can buy a Call for 1 BTC with Strike Price at $11,000, Settlement Date on 27 March 2020
- The cost for making this position will be 589.99 SP$ (Premium Payable)
How do I profit?
- In order to profit from your buy Call, BTC will have to trade above your Breakeven Price at Settlement Date
- Breakeven Price is calculated as [Strike Price + Premium Payable]
- In this scenario, Breakeven Price will be $11,589.99 (11,000 + 589.99)
- The higher BTC trades above your Breakeven Price at $11,589.99, the greater your profit. Technically, your profit is unlimited
- However, if BTC trades below $11,589.99, your maximum loss will be limited to your Premium Payable (589.99 SP$), even if BTC goes to $0
