Option Chain for International Business Machines Corporation (IBM)

Calls "Calls" is an option that gives the holder the right to buy the underlying asset. Last "Last Sale" is the most recent trade. Chg "Change" is the difference between a day's last trade and the previous day's last trade. Bid "Bid" is the price a potential buyer is willing to pay for a security. Sometimes also used in the contect of takeovers where one corporation is bidding for (trying to buy) another corporation. In trading, we have the bid-ask spread which is the difference between what buyers are willing to pay and what sellers are asking for in terms of price. Ask "Ask" is the quoted ask, or the lowest price an investor will accept to sell a stock. Practically speaking, this is the quoted offer at which an investor can buy shares of stock; also called the offer price. Vol "Volume" is the daily number of shares of a security that change hands between a buyer and a seller. Also known as volume traded. Open Int "Open Interest" is the total number of derivatives contracts traded that have not yet been liquidated either by an offsetting derivative transaction or by delivery. Root Strike "Strike" is the index value at which the buyer of the option can buy or sell the underlying stock index. The strike index is converted to a dollar value by multiplying by the option's contract multiple. Puts "Put" is an option granting the right to sell the underlying futures contract.
