    Sellers are individuals or entities that are involved in exchanging goods and services in exchange for cash. When it comes to financial markets, a seller is an individual or an entity that is offering securities, they are currently holding, to someone willing to purchase.

    In the options market, sellers are also termed as writers. The writers are on either side of the contract, and they will get a premium if they go on to sell the option.

    Breaking Down Seller:

    Sellers can be individuals or entities such as a broker or hedge funds that involve in offering fiscal securities such as stocks, commodities, options, and currencies, among other things for sale. This may cover the instruments that are traded in marketplaces outside of the authorised stock exchanges, regulated by the designated bodies.

    The securities offered for purchase cover the derivates contract, precious jewellery, fine art, and over-the-counter assets, among other things.

    Types of Sellers:

    While putting up an asset or security for sale, the seller is a person who is the owner of that particular asset and is willing to give that up in exchange for cash. The person who is going to purchase that security will go on to become the new owner.

    Short selling is when the seller is not someone who is owning the security that is put up for sale. These individuals adopt the selling first and buying later technique and hope to sell at a much higher price than the buying prices. The sellers try to take advantage of the dropping prices.

    In the options market, sellers are individuals or entities that write the options contract and are responsible for collecting the premiums from the buyers in exchange for the options they are selling.
