Option buyer has directional view and he expect big move in his direction to get big profit. On the other hand option writer hate movement of underlying because theirs intention is to take advantage of time decay.

options sellers are hedged , so how are they against volatility . They don’t care about volatility. They collect the premium.

When i say options sellers i mean market makers and hedgers. Not speculators.

Speculators are betting on volatility.

When it comes to options , it all about volatility. if there is no volatility why bother with options.
