Stock options, or just options for short, give someone the right to buy or sell a stock at an agreed-upon price and date. Options are typically less expensive than stocks themselves. As a result, stock options offer more leverage than stocks.

Leverage for Explosive Gains

They effectively allow an investor to benefit from a stock's price movement for less money than it would cost to buy the stock itself.

The increased leverage comes with the potential for additional risk and reward. Options effectively allow you to control more shares of stock than you could if you just bought the stocks themselves. That means you could have more significant swings in your account balance by using options if you take on enough positions.
