Frequently Asked Questions

Questions on your mind? Dont worry we have the answers!

Trading options has its own risks, and it's essential to follow the best practices if you want to be safe. The most important thing to do is choose a reputable and trusted option trading platform that is SEBI regulated, uses state-of-art measures to protect your data, and offers reliable customer support. If you're new to options trading, consider starting with small captial till the time you learn about all the aspects of option trading.

There is no minimum investment required to begin options trading as it depends on the type of contract and the premium. Options contracts are available in lot sizes which differ from stock to stock. So, you pay a premium for at least 1 lot if you wish to take the trade. In simple terms, the minimum investment required for buying an option contract would be the premium paid in addition to brokerage and other charges. While selling an option contract you would need to maintain margin money in your trading account as decided by the exchange.

Deciding whether options trading or stock trading is better totally depends on your financial goals, risk tolerance, and trading experience. Stock trading is more suitable for long-term investors or swing traders seeking for returns with less or moderate risk tolerance. On the other hand, options trading offers more potential for higher returns, but it requires a deeper understanding of the market and a higher tolerance for risk.

Trading options online offers several benefits, including:
  1. Income generation
  2. Profit potential in any market direction
  3. Time decay advantage for sellers
There's a lot more too, but what you need is a proper options trading platform like Dhan to ensure that you have enough risk management tools.
Whether it's delivery or intraday option trading, there are a few risks that you need to be aware of:
  1. Market-based risks: options are derivatives that are affected significantly by the movements of the market.
  2. Expiry: options decay as they approach their expiry date, which has the potential to erode the contract's value.
  3. Leverage: derivatives like options are highly leveraged instruments that can amplify both gains and losses.
Gauging these risks using technical indicators and managing them with tools like Trailing Stop Loss, Cover Order, Bracket Order, and more is essential. Lucky for you, all this and more is available on Dhan's online options trading platform!

It is possible to for options buyers and sellers to trade contracts with less money. You can pledge shares to get more margin when trading online options on Dhan.
