Market Measures

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

This segment of Market Measures looks at how many days calls and puts are in the money (ITM).

As option sellers, we want our options to expire out of the money. So how long do calls and puts typically spend in the money?

The study shows that on average, calls spend almost twice as many days in the money than puts. Calls are also more likely than puts to spend more than one day in the money.

Tune in as Tom and Tony walk through the numbers!
