Options are the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a commodity at a certain price. Options are very risky investments because they bear not only the price risk of the commodity, itself, but also decrease in value daily at a constant commodity price. However, some purchased options can also be regarded as income insurance, which may or may not be expensive. We recently bought an option whose value is a very small fraction of our portfolio. This investment is suitable for our unique situation.
