Frequently Asked Questions



Stock Options are derivative contracts that give the holder the right but not the obligation to buy or sell the underlying share at a pre-agreed price and time. Options are of two types: call & put. A call option is the right to buy a stock while a put option is the right to sell a stock.

Options trading consists of two primary components: call and put. A call option gives you the right to buy a stock while a put option gives you the right to sell a stock. These are further divided into 4 more options:

  • Buying a call option
  • Selling a call option
  • Buying a put option
  • Selling a put option

You do not need a Demat account for trading options because there is no delivery of shares involved. All you need is an options trading account that you can open online with a broker.

Here’s how you can open an options trading account for free on Dhan:

  • Download the app
  • Enter Mobile Number
  • Set a password & PIN
  • Begin KYC
