Option trading is like most every other activity of human endeavor in the sense that it has its own unique language. This is no different than bowling, hunting, brain, or baseball surgery. There is a tendency in people to establish their own terminology, and sometimes even slang, that they wish to use to speak with those who share their interests. It serves the aim of separating those in the know from the beginners. When you’re new to anything, this can be daunting and confusing. Usually, a little research will sort things out. Often the terminology is only a complex way of expressing a simple idea. Option trading is filled with such terms: calls, puts, margins, strike prices. It helps to be able to talk the jargon.
