|If your option is about to expire, but you'd like to keep it open, you may choose to roll out, up, or down, whether you're either a holder or a writer. Rolling over generally entails closing out your first position and opening a new one with the same characteristics except for the expiration date or strike price.|
When you roll out, you select the same option with a later expiration date. If you own an option, you might make this choice if you believe the underlying will move in-the-money at a later date.
When you roll up, you open a new position with a higher strike price. You might do this if you think the underlying stock price will continue to rise. G/L

I just started trading options. I bought a coke call option that expires in 3 months, with the intention of a long position. It seems to be losing money. The strike price is $39 and I did pay a premium for the option. On my account, I'm seeing it in the red more and more each day. The current price of the stock is lower than at the time I bought my call option. Should I be concerned about this or just hold on and bide my time because the option expires on Feb 16. Thanks.
