A short position in an option that confers the right to sell and is not offset by a short position in the underlying asset. For example, a Forex Trader who believes EUR/USD might rise or stabilize above a certain level could sell a Euro put/U.S. dollar call option with a strike price at that level to establish a naked put position on EUR/USD.
