Out of the Money

« Back to Glossary Index

When the underlying (indicative) market price is less than a binary option’s strike price, the binary option is “out of the money.”

At expiration, only in-the-money options get the $100 payout, so an “out of the money” will expire at zero. Prior to expiration, the option will have a variable value based on how close it is to the strike price.
