The trading range or lateral trend, is an area of the graph delimited at the bottom by a support line and at the top by a resistance line.

Call and put options: to earn even downward

Let's start immediately with a nice definition. In financial jargon, the option is an asymmetric derivative instrument which, in simple terms, translates into a contract with a non-binding clause to buy or sell the security on which the option has been subscribed. The security in question - which may be a share, a pair of currencies, a commodity or another financial product - is called an "underlying instrument" and can be subject to a call or put option (also known as a put and call option).
