naked call

Definition

Forex

  • A short position in an option that confers the right to buy and is not offset by a long position in the underlying asset. For example, a forex trader who thinks EUR/USD might fall or stabilize below a certain level could sell a Euro call/U.S. Dollar put option with a strike price at that level to establish a naked call position on EUR/USD.
