A Currency option is a contract between a buyer and a seller that gives the buyer the right to buy (Call option) or to sell (Put option) an underlying currency at a future date at an agreed rate (Strike) for an agreed price (Premium).

Similarly, an Interest rate option gives the floating rate borrower, the right to place an upper limit on the rate of interest exposure (Cap). A Collar is a combination of a bought Cap agreement and a sold Floor agreement, or vice versa.
