Business A to Z

In-the-Money


A put option that has a strike price higher than the underlying futures price, or a call option with a strike price lower than the underlying futures price. For example, if the March COMEX silver futures contract is trading at $6 an ounce, a March call with a strike price of $5. 50 would be considered in-the-money by $0. 50 an ounce. Related: put
