Put option trading

Question

Guest Chuong

I'm learning to trade option recently and in my demo account I made a trade with the Australia 200 4750 PUT JUN-20 opening at 406 and it is currently down to 260. So I cannot understand why my P/L is -AU$1434 currently when I'm buying a Put option? Should I be making money if this trade is going down in value?Could someone help me understand this put option trading?

Thank you!

The value of the put option has declined from 406 to 260, therefore your P&L has also declined (as you bought the option).

I suggest you find some articles/videos online that explain how options work, or even better buy yourself a book, I have "Options Plain and Simple" by Lenny Jordan which I recommend.

Hi Chuong,

As the Aus 200 increases, the value of your put decreases. You should seriously think about staying away from options until you have researched how they work.
