LONG/SHORT CALL POSITION & LONG/SHORT PUT POSITION


Explanation:
If you put this info together, you get the above, which i can't be ceratin of. However, one thing I know is that Eng has peculiar very non-transparent terms of trading on the SE, so i don't think the translation will be an obvious one:


DEFINITIONS

DE: Call , Kaufoption .
FR: call , option d'achat .
IT: call , opzione d'acquisto

See also: option.
Referenced from: call purchase. long call. put. short call.

PUT: (EN) An option contract that gives the holder the right to sell a certain quantity of the underlying asset for a specified price (exercise price) up to a specified date (expiration date) and gives the writer the obligation to purchase the option at the exercise price, if the holder exercises the option.

I didn't get direct hits for call position or put position but for LONG/SHORT CALL POSITION & LONG/SHORT PUT POSITION. I think you'll have to check yourself to decide

SEE Google under these terms. And check this other glossary out.
