I don't think this article is exactly a stub, it is more a definition that is potentially helpful in some other pages. This material may well be covered better somewhere else but I've no idea how to find out. Servalo 20:54, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Pyat rublei 1997.jpg[edit]

(removed reference to Image:Pyat rublei 1997.jpg, which is not used in this article Alan Davies (talk) 14:16, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Meaning when referring to a derivative[edit]

I corrected the definition of Long when referring to derivatives, as the definition stated that being long in a derivative implied that the holder profited if the value of the underlying instrument increases, which isn't true for the holder of a put option.
