Long Put

Long Put Definition

Long Put is a term used in options trading, where a put option is purchased speculating on a decrease of the price of the underlying equity. If the equity's price decreases, the option value increases. The investor can sell the option prior to expiration, or can wait until the expiration date, at which time he or she must purchase the stock at market prices, then sell the stock at the exercise price specified in the long put contract.
