#Options vs #Futures

Although both are #derivatives, Futures and Options are entirely different in terms of their potential #risk and #return , #leverage and how they work.

How different are futures and options?
#Rights vs #Obligations

In #Futures Trading, both the buyer & the seller are #obligated to settle the contracts on or before expiry ie cover shorts or longs or rollover to next contract, regardless of how the underlying asset price moves.
With #Options the buyer has the #Right, but not the #Obligation, to buy (call option) or sell (put option) on underlying asset. The option seller is #passive and must comply with whatever the option buyer does.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

News about the topic of #Ankerkriminalität: . (A #German medical doctor, #JoachimTüncher died after having been stabbed in the head and torso on 2018-08-16 by a twenty-something #Somali #asylumseeker in #Offenburg(#BadenWürttemberg).)
Interesting detail:
..
.. During the #trial, the brother of the dead doctor reproaches the prosecution of not having pursued a hot lead having a #political dimension: the brother says that the victim had told him that some time before the killing, he had received a threatening phone call, apparently
..
..as some sort of vengeance for Tüncher's refusal to issue a medical certificate for (another)#asylumseeker(in order to prevent the latter's deportation).

Might this have been(this is pure #speculation) some kind of #hitjob/#contractkilling to cow German doctors into obedience?
