Exiting Option positions

A brief guide on exiting option positions.

How do I close an option position?

Closing options means the option tokens are sold back to the pool for underlying tokens.

Closing active positions.

First, visit the market page of the app in the market of the option you'd like to close. To the right of the options table is the "active positions" card, which will list the option tokens held in the connected wallet.

This wallet has both long Put options and short Put options. This means both these options can be closed.

How do I close Short option positions?

  1. To close an active position, simply click on it.

Notice when an active position is selected, the corresponding option "+" icon in the table changes to a check-mark. The order title is "Close Short Position" when the "Buy" button is selected because underlying tokens are bought for your short option tokens.

This order is normally for purchasing long option tokens, but it will switch if an active short option position exists.

Swapping short option tokens to underlying tokens is closing the option position.
