Add an "e", and I'll be impure
Add an "f", you'll have to be careful
Reunite me with my ex, and I'll go up and down out of control

It's not exactly a reverse hangman.

Could you be the word

or

Add an "e", and I'll be impure

ore - a mixture of rock and mineral, so not pure.

Add an "f", you'll have to be careful

Then add f to get fore - shouted in golf as a warning to watchout for a flying ball.

Reunite me with my ex, and I'll go up and down out of control

Your ex meaning something which has been cast i.e. discarded, thrown away.

Joining this gives forecast - a financial or weather forecast is unpredictable.

*Edit (thanks to @DrunkWolf): Add an "x" to Fore at the end and you have Forex, the foreign exchange market that moves up and down out of control.

The title; I'm not really sure

Or is an option or choice, so not one certain thing.

    $\begingroup$ Probably on the right path, but your 'ex' seems weird; I'm quite sure you should google Forex to find something that goes up and down out of control ;) $\endgroup$ – DrunkWolf Jul 18 '17 at 14:22
  • $\begingroup$ Possibly, I'm not sure about relating x and ex, and maybe the answer would then be the exchange rate. $\endgroup$ – Tom Jul 18 '17 at 14:24

    $\begingroup$ @DrunkWolf is right! Just wanted to make that sentence more "meaningful" $\endgroup$ – bolt997 Jul 19 '17 at 0:50
