The need for a proper understanding of the structure and working of the securities market can hardly be over-emphasized for an investor. The term securities market is a comprehensive one and refers to the buyers and sellers of securities, as also the structure comprising all those agencies and institutions which help in the sale and resale of company securities. Options trading software plays a pivotal role in this regard. It also helps the investor in selecting the securities in which he would like to invest his money. The client will, then, place an order with the broker. The order is usually placed by Internet or on the telephone to avoid delay.

Options trading software also helps in foreseeing the future trend of prices, with the object of making gains out of the fluctuations in the share value. If these expectations come true, the investor succeeds in earning a profit. If, however, prices do not change in accordance with expectations, the investor is faced with the prospect of loss. The options can be used for the purpose of hedging, also. Hedging refers to any device through which one can protect oneself against loss. If a bull speculator agrees to purchase the security from somebody, he may hedge himself by buying a put option so that any loss he may suffer in his original transaction may be offset by the exercise of the put option. Similarly, an intending seller can hedge himself against loss through a call option. Options trading software also plays a significant part in cutting down losses. When the price of a share shows a persistent downward trend, the investor may order his broker to sell it at the current price, and cut down further loss.
