≈ Always right. ≈
“A fortune in fabulous prizes may go to these people today if they know when The Price is Right! Sandy Flornour, stand up! Paul Levine, stand up! Connie Dunnall, stand up! Myra Carter, stand up! And all four of you, come on down; you’re the first contestants on The Price is Right! And now, here is the star of The Price is Right, Bob Barker!”
The Strike Price is something great. It is the price at which buyers and sellers agree upon buying or selling a particular underlying asset. No more, no less. The price is right.
Options are contracts, therefore, there are terms to it that you must read carefully before signing. The strike price is one of them. The other two are the expiration date and the underlying asset.
— “But I am an options trader and I never signed anything.”
Yes, you did. As soon as you click *SEND* and you hear that *TILILONN* sound coming through the speakers, that’s you and the person (or robot) on the other side of the brokerage platform signing the contract.
If you bought the contract, you have rights:
– If you bought a Call option, you have the right to buy the underlying asset at the strike price.
– If you bought a Put option, you have the right to sell the underlying asset at the strike price.
If you sold the contract, you have obligations:
– If you sold a Call option, you have the obligation to sell the underlying asset at the strike price.
– If you sold a Put option, you have the obligation to buy the underlying asset at the strike price.
See? No more, no less. The price is always right.

Here’s a screenshot of a typical option chain. This one is from the Tastyworks platform. The strike prices sit right in the middle between the Call side and the Put side. Those are all the prices available for that particular asset at that specific expiration date.
