What is a long put?

BearishLimited ProfitLimited Loss

A simple bearish strategy for beginners that can yield big rewards. A put gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to sell the underlying stock at strike price A. However, you can simply buy and sell a put before it expires to profit off the price change.

The value of the option will decay as time passes, and is sensitive to changes in volatility. Your maximum loss is capped at the price you pay for the option.
