Buy to Close vs Sell to Close

Buy-to-close (BTC) orders pay a debit and close a position that was opened selling options. Sell-to-close (STC) orders receive a credit and close a position that was opened buying options. The premium paid or collected, relative to the opening order, determines your profit or loss on a trade.
