Confusion in expiry date and selling date

#1
Hi All,

I am new in trading in futures and options. I would like to know the basic difference between expiry date and selling date. Also, how should I sell options if I have not purchased any , it can be a call or a put option

u can simply sell same as how you are buying by using the proper window in ur trading account . the position shows as negative until u buy back to make it neutral .
for seling u need more margin . but generally sellers will be in profit and again it all depends how one time the mkt.

Ok, so lets say I need to sell options ; Shouldn't I buy it first to sell it ? Also is there a website or any virtual trading platform where I can learn it
