Settlement Value

« Back to Glossary Index

At expiration, a binary option contract is settled and determined to be in, at, or out of the money. The settlement value factors in the floor and ceiling levels of spreads to decide what the profit or loss will be for that spread contract.

Binary options must have a settlement value of either 0 or 100. Spreads must have a settlement value no lower than their floor level and no higher than their ceiling level.
